    How do you save....

    How do you save for your next Disney trip? After years of not taking any big vacations, the last few years we now use some tax money. Also, whatever I have left in my wallet at the end of the week, goes into a Disney vacation envelope. Doesn't matter how small the amount, it adds up.

    I take out all the money that is left in my husband's wallet. I check it every day. Well, sometimes I check it a couple of times a day.

    depending on how you feel about airplanes,and if you have an extra day to spare you can do red eye or early morning flights, they're usually less costly from JFK (I saw you're from NY) & can save you $50-100 pp.

    I just tell my kids to eat a sandwich and take their lunch money.

    Just kidding!!! i have budgeted all of my "extra" pay to go into a vacation account. Any extra jobs I get paid for- the check goes in there.

    Bringing lunch to work saves you at least $35+ per week.

    Bottle return money, garage sale profits and all of our change from any bills broken goes to our Disney trip fund!

    I save all loose change, tax return, a portion of my monthly deposit to my savings account goes to Disney fund, take my lunch to work, make my own coffee drinks for the ride to work instead of buying from coffeehouse, etc. It all adds up.
