    What do you do to save for Disney?

    We have a large money jar that we put any change into
    The kids wash cars and do extra chores for disney dollars which arent proper one but little credit notes we give them which we change to proper dollars when we get there
    We also ebay anything we can find including things from car boot sales

    With difficulty. :sigh;

    We have a change jar. We save every penny we can but something always comes along like a car service. That's why it's taking us 7 years.

    I recently set up a new bank account specifically for a Disney fund. I've already got enough for a new passport. :D

    I need some ideas please.

    I try to take a certain amount out of each paycheck and stash it away if I can. To he honest sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but I do try. We also have a change jar that we throw money into and try not to touch it.

    I wish I could figure out some stuff to sell on e-bay, but I so can't think of anything

    I buy a lottery ticket each week too but I can't recommend that as a foolproof method of saving.

    I buy AP's with my tax return. That is the biggest expense for us.

    I have a change jar, that adds up pretty quickly. Any rebate checks, work reimbursements, etc go in there as well. I also put a portion of my paycheck into an ING account that I can't touch easily.
