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 was FRUGAL he he. After getting the kids off to school I went to the grocery gas station and filled up with gas with a $.60 discount per gallon thanks to grocery store rewards. Next I ran into Walgreens for a few deals. I had a piece of leftover pizza for dinner. I went to the grocery store and got some great deals since the new deals started yesterday. I spent $28 and got $8.50 back in cash back rewards. I want to make a apple cider donut cake this weekend and I was able to get apple cider for just $.49, which was awesome. I’ll post pics of the cake and the recipe when it’s done 🙂
I got my FREE Friday card from Hallmark. Sadly, it was the last Friday for free cards this time around. Hopefully the promotion will come back around soon. I have a nice card stockpile for now. I did all of my Bing searches. I made chipotle chicken and rice in the crockpot. The girls went to a high school football game with their friends and a parent. It was their first time and they had a great time. My parents came over for a quick visit.
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
