$35 – Winn-Dixie had a sale where you got $5 off a $50 gift card. I bought 7 $50 Shell gift cards and paid just $315 for $350 worth of gas. I took the $350 out of our monthly gas budget and replaced it with gift cards. I added the $35 in cash to the fund.
$20 in various rebate checks
$0.78 in spare change (We aren’t spending much cash right now since our Disney Chase Visa is giving us 5% back on grocery, gas and restaurant purchases since we upgraded our card. I plan to just add that entire amount to the fund at once.)
$100 – Hubby took the kids and his mom to Texas for a week to visit her family (I stayed here at home to work on the blog and do other things around the house). He came in under budget so we are putting that money towards Disney!
$155.78 added to the Disney fund. $1373.62 saved since November 12th, 2011 (see past deposits here). My goal is $3,000. Likely going in Jan 2013.
I want you to learn how to grow your own fund too! If you are new to couponing, start with the Getting Started Couponing Series, followed by the How To Start Your Fund series. Remember you can use these savings principles to save for anything you want from Disney trips to paying off debt to buying a new television. As the great Walt Disney said “If you can dream it, you can do it!”
