    I was bought a big jug for Christmas with Florida Fund painted on to it and I collect 1 and 2 coins. Trouble is I've grown to love this jug and really don't want to smash it to get the money out but there will be about 500 in it so that will be a lot of money to miss out on

    All of our loose change goes into a jar. When the jar gets full I roll the coins. After about 2 cycles I have enough to take it to the bank and put it in our savings account. Donna also saves $1.00 bills.

    Well funny you should ask that as I was wondering the same thing! I have one part time wage coming in and 2 demanding teenagers so saving is not that easy for me, but I was just sitting here wondering if there's any way I could get the three of us there next August...in reality it's probably not going to be possible, but it's worth thinking about.

    Those pot of dream jars are fab. We had one we were putting coins in and one with notes. It meant we aren't able to "borrow" any money from our holiday funds :)

    We buy EVERYTHING with our Disney Visa card. We pay it off each month and get 1% towards our next trip. We have about $800 saved just from buying gas, groceries, home improvement. It adds up quick!

    We have a mason jar for change and next to that a jar with the gang on it that I found at a yard sale. In the gang jar goes our money from the 52 week challenge, try it out: http://www.savingadvice.com/articles...challenge.html

    I'm in the US and flights aren't terribly pricy to Orlando so I'm lucky in that respect.

    I buy an annual pass every year with my tax refund money.

    I have a change jar. I work as a TA and that's fun money. I have money directly deposited into a savings account that is not easy to access so I'm not tempted to take money out.
