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 started his new job, so it was the first day I was on my own in about 6 months. I really missed him, but I made good use of my time. I got some paperwork done that I had been slacking on. I went to CVS to roll over some ECB’s and to get a few deals. I scanned my receipt into Fetch Rewards and I got 11oo bonus points for buying some Dove soap for Kayla. I also went to one of my grocery stores to get pasta for $.25/box, Yoplait yogurt for $.15 and a few other deals. For dinner I made pasta to go with the meatballs that I made the other day. Ro loved his now job – so far so good. They even had a special lunch to welcome him to the company, which was really nice. He is happy to be working again. I did all of my Bing searches.
