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 did all of my normal Sunday things including laundry and getting sandwiches made for lunches. I made one for Ro for today too. We took the kids to Chili’s for lunch. I had a FREE Chips and Guac coupon and a gift card that I got for my birthday. Our total including tip was $7.32. I went to Dollar Tree to get Sunday papers for coupon purposes. I went to Dollar General to get Rudy some dog bones. He loves the DG variety and they’re only $1 per box. I made an Apple Cider Donut Cake and I made my own recipe for it. I’ll be posting the recipe and pics later. I did all of my Bing searches. The girls had a lacrosse game in the morning and a basketball game in the evening. We all brought home lunch leftovers and had them for dinner. It was a good day, but I can’t wait until the weather gets more “Fall-like”. I love October, but it’s going to start out warm here. I think it’s supposed to get cooler after Thursday. I hope so !
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
