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 decent day yesterday. It was about 30 degrees colder and rainy, so that was nice. I was able to shut off the AC. Hopefully we have used it for the last time this season, time will tell. I’m hoping to get at least one lower electric bill before the heat has to go on. I spent the day with my mom so my dad could go to work. We did our normal Thursday stuff and had a tuna sandwich together for lunch. On my way home I stopped at the grocery store because it was the last day for this week’s deals. I have been able to stock UP on Kellogg’s cereal this week thanks to a sale, a coupon and ibotta rebates. I wanted to get one last round in before the deals turned over. We had homemade pizza for dinner. I did all of my Bing searches.
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
