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 met up with my parents for lunch. After lunch I went to Walgreens to pick up a FREE photo enlargement and to stock up on toilet paper. I told you guys a few weeks ago that I found a great deal on the Wags TP. It’s cheaper and softer than Scott, so I’m buying… I had a $10 reward in my account, so I left with 10 four packs for FREE after my reward. I also got a coupon for $5 off of a $20 purchase next time = yay ! I made chicken, buttered noodles and corn for dinner.
It was HOT here yesterday and will be HOTTER today. October is my favorite month of the year and two days are shot because of the heat ! The good news is that it is supposed to severely cool down (from 93 today to 63 tomorrow). It looks like it will remain cool for the next week or so at least. I woke up to an email from SavingStar that a few dollars were added to my account from grocery store things I bought a few days ago. I also got an email from CVS with $4ECB’s because of my Summer spending. I also went and redeemed a coupon for 5 FREE pretzels from The Pretzel Factory. The girls each had one for an after school snack. I did all of my Bing searches.
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
