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. We had a really bad storm the night before as most of the east coast did. We were very blessed although we did have some leaks in a few spots. There was a large amount of flooding in all of the surrounding areas, but we didn’t get water in our basement and we didn’t even lose power. The girl’s school was flooded, so they had the day off yesterday. They will go back to school this morning. They were thrilled to sleep in. Ro’s work also had some flooding, so he was also off for the day. We hung out around the house for most of the day.
I did run to the grocery store to get things for the week and ingredients for a delicious meatball recipe I saw online. I made a huge batch of them, which should feed us 3 or 4 times. I made a big pot of spaghetti and I had Amoroso rolls, so everyone had the choice of spaghetti and meatballs or meatball subs. They were pretty good if I do say so myself. I did all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2021 our year !
