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. It was another beautiful with no heat or AC required. We ate all meals at home again. The girls invited one of their cousins over to play, so that occupied most of the day. We did a little more fall decorating. The girls each got a pair of sneakers in the mail that they had been wanting. Of course I got a good deal on them and cash back. Luckily both pairs fit them perfectly. We had pizza for dinner that I had gotten at the grocery store for $1.99 each. We have more left to go with lunch today. Ro and I watched the Penn State football game last night before bed. We turned in a little on the early side because the girls have their last early lacrosse game at 7am this morning. I think we’ve all forgotten how good it feels to sleep in on a Sunday morning. I’m looking forward to trying it out again next Sunday !
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
