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 spent the day with my mom so my dad could go to work. We watched her favorite shows and I made us each a kickin’ tuna fish sandwich for lunch. We got pizza for dinner since one of our local pizza shop has a Thursday night special, which is pretty decent. Ro and Kayla went to the gym while Liv and I got ready to watch the Eagles game. I also helped both of the girls study for two tests that they have today. I spent some time last night getting a Walgreens trip organized for this morning. There is a gas station that I get grocery rewards from and I’m on empty. There happens to be a Walgreens right there too, so I can do both at once. I’ll have a discount of $.70/gallon thanks to grocery store rewards. I did all of my Bing searches.
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
