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. Ro and the girls had basketball practice, so they were gone for about 3 hours. While they were gone I ran out and did a few deals. When they came home I made everyone lunch. I ran to Aldi to get some things we were in need of for the rest of the weekend and next week’s lunches. I made homemade pizza for dinner. I cleaned up the kitchen and living room. I cleaned out the fridge. I went on Amazon and got Kayla some new clarinet reeds using a gift card I earned through Bing. I got a great deal on some treats for Rudy with coupons ($1 per bag). I printed a few good coupons and planned out a few deals I hope to do today or tomorrow.
I did all of my Bing searches and met my first Swagbucks goal. It was a little harder yesterday.
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2017 our year !!
