How does everyone save money for your trips? I am TRYING to start saving money and put it away for our next trip, but it is SO HARD. I was wondering what everyone else does? I was almost considering getting a part time job just for extra money....what are everyone's thoughts?
I have a small amount from every paycheck deposited into a savings account & try to forget its there. That way, when I need it (like for a trip to WDW), it's there. It really adds up over time too! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  797.7 #3 7:27PM
We do like a Christmas Club , so much out of every pay . And don't touch it !!!!!! - skcanfield  467.7 #12 7:48PM
great idea guys! Thanks! - ncjal  200.7 #33 7:54PM
Sorry we can't save money for our trip we went after my hubby got his settlement from getting hit by a car while he was walking into a gas station - jeri814  102.3 #59 8:01PM
We usually wing it. I just pay a little here and there for the trip. Then payoff and spending money with income tax. I need to do something different though. I did read on a blog once that a lady gets a $25 Disney gift card every time she is out shopping. I think that's a cool start! - BodinFabFive  26.3 #129 8:29PM
We try to save as best we can monthly (we try not to use plan b) plan B is pay Using the disney card. Card must be paid off in full by august trip. As a nurse I get overtime all the time. - 5disneylovers  770.2 #5 8:57PM
A great second job that a lot of ppl do is to be a server in a restaurant. You would be surprised how much u can save tgat way thru tips alone. I know someone who bought a house w/those savings..lol..just an idea if u have extra time. It's really not bad - mickeynme  150.9 #50 11:01PM
I recently bought this beautiful glass figure that looks like a hang bag, and is actually a piggy bank! Every paycheck i put 100$ in there and i also put as much change as i can find. By disney, i will have well more than enough. And i keep remidig nyself how worth it its gonna be to have alot of money down disney to do whatever i want!!! - Boardwalkgirl  54.9 #86 11:36PM

I use my Disney Visa for everything to earn rewards to use for vacations. I have heard of some people putting money on a Disney gift card everytime they get paid. Cutting out a few movies or eating out throughout the year really adds up too! Like others said, putting a little bit of each paycheck in a savings account can really add up too! - Andrea84  625.3 #7 11:45PM
Disney Vacation Club. You pay every month and have your accommodations paid for. The rest-food, airfare, etc. can be saved or paid on a credit card. We have been traveling on free miles for years ! - Sandy  245.7 #1253 4:58AM
