One of the biggest reasons for creating MommyLuvs2save was to create a community of moms and dads who want to help their family save money when buying essentials in order to free up money for debt repayment. My own family has paid off over $111,500 in consumer debt including credit cards, student loan debt and 2 vehicles. I am a teacher at heart. I want to use the skills that I have learned to help YOU ditch debt. I want to encourage each of you in your efforts so that one day you can feel the freedom of being debt free. I’m not quite there yet either (we still have a mortgage) so I need encouragement as well
It can be very difficult to pay down debt. There are many temptations to spend money. We live in a culture that encourages debt and spending. In addition, expenses come up and there never seems to be any extra money for paying down debt. I want to urge each of you to participate in a challenge. Just leave a comment about one positive step you’ve taken for your family each day. Did you eat in instead of going out? Did you save money at the grocery store? Did you pay extra on your credit card? Leave a comment below and we will cheer one another on every day and every step of the way.
* I will also be sharing my progress from the day prior.
My Progress: I had a pretty good day yesterday. The girls had a 2 hour lacrosse practice in the morning. Liv didn’t feel well enough to go, but I took Kayla and picked her up. I went to the grocery store to do a few good deals and to get some food for the weekend. Kayla and I drove out to my brother’s house to celebrate my nephew’s 14th birthday. I got him an Ebay gift card because he loves buying SpongeBob and Bugs Bunny DVD’s on there. He has Autism and knows SO many details about things that are of interest to him including movies, college football among other things. He is so impressive. Ro made dinner while we were gone.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there. I hope you get spoiled by your kiddos and your hubby. NO cooking or cleaning for you today. My last day of making a meal was Friday. I’m hoping to enjoy my day of rest and I hope that you all do too. I did all of my Bing searches last night when I got home.
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2019 our year!!
