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. I forgot to write that on Saturday I got a coupon for a FREE Full size Pioneer Woman’s frozen food item from PinchMe. I posted about this opportunity, so I hope you all got one too. PinchMe periodically offers FREE full size and sample size items. I’ve gotten some great things from them in the past and I plan on picking up my free PW entrée this week. Yesterday we had a lacrosse and basketball game for the girls. In between games I watched the Eagles game. I made a HUGE salad. I also made sandwiches for lunches this week. I like making the sandwiches and then the girls can just add their drink and snack(s) in the morning. It makes the week go easier. We had taco salad for dinner, which is always a hit. I did all of my Bing searches. I went to the Dollar Tree for Sunday papers, but sadly they were sold out by the time I got there. Luckily there was only 1 insert and the coupons weren’t all that great from what I could tell.
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
