Found money is always good! When was the last time you shopped around for insurance? We hadn’t in over a year. Ever since I dreamed up the idea of possibly doing a few days at Disney World along with Universal next summer. To make up for our cancelled Universal trip this spring break trip. I have been trying to really figure out where I can find those hidden bits of extra money to help make that dream a reality. That lead me to get quotes from other insurance companies. Which turned out to be a big win for my Disney fund!
Previously, I was paying $1056.00 for a 6 month policy. After shopping around the best deal was with Geico. I would have the same coverage but only pay $906.64 every 6 months. Which is a a nice chunk of change. Then it got better. Geico is offering an automatic 15% savings for everyone even new signups as part of the Geico Gives Back campaign. That saved me an additional $130.00. For a grand total of $279.36 savings going straight into my Disney fund!
Plane tickets – $2,000 ($400 per person)
DisneyLand package with hotel & tickets – $3665.04
Food – $1500.00
Souvenirs – $200.00
For the plane tickets I would like to earn the money needed by the end of this year. That gives me 5 months to make that happen. If you break it down by the monthly amount needed it is $250.00. That comes out to $62.50 per week. I like to have both a monthly and weekly goal. Some weeks are going to feel like I am rolling in the dough. Other weeks not so much. On those weeks that aren’t so awesome it is nice to be able to look at my monthly goal and see if I am on track or not. 99.99% of the time my monthly goal will be on track or better than expected.
Current goal plane tickets need $2,000 earned $1172.69!
