Oh no. The cost of living can vary greatly depending on where you live in the US. NYC for example is extremely expensive. What someone pays for rent for essentially a closet would get you a ginormous house here.
Every spare penny we have at the end of each month goes to pay for our disney holiday....no special ways to save etc, just work hard so we can play harder at the end of each year.

MY TRIP REPORT INDEX
Apart from the change jar--and it's more a convenience than official savings--nothing special. I used to sell stuff on e-Bay, but it's become more of a pain than not in the last two years. Not to mention having sold most things that could be shipped!
Basically, just saving as much as possible and cutting a few things when possible. Using the library instead of buying books, and that sort of thing. Not a huge chunk of money, but it helps!
The house has become greedy the past two years and most of my money is going into it. It keep having crises--which I do not appreciate! :rolleyes008:
Ebay , I hit yard sales, thrift stores flea markets and have a grand old time . I LoVe watching my Paypal account increase . And I also have a change jar , rebates,change, winning scratch offs .
For me it's easy I send DH to work at his second job as a bartender!! He can pay off our vacation in 3 weeks time if he applies himself!
When I was working I used to use my profit sharing and annual bonus - ah those were the days
We book with VH and then I divide the balance by the number of weeks till we have to have paid and then pay them that amount each week by direct debit to VH.
Yeah I could save it myself in an account and earn a measly amount of interest but from past experience have found that I am not so strict and have dipped into it. At least this way I know it is paid and out the way.

What a good idea Debbie. But as we book DIY we don't have that option. It's always flight money upfront.Originally Posted by Debbie2, post: 25451
I am paying bit by bit off on my flydrive and am buying tickets etc month by month.
Am going to borrow the rest from the kids building society accounts(i put it in in the first place) if i can't pay for it all and pay it off when we get back.
