This story comes to us from my AMAZING reader Dany:
I have been following your blog for about 6 months now, and I love it. I am so glad that you did the series this month about how you turn savings into funds for your Disney trip.
I decided to try to get some of my bills lowered, and started with some insurance my husband got through work. Before I could decided if I wanted to keep it I had to read the policies….well, good thing I did. I have already received a check for $135, and I anticipate receiving about $1200-$1500 more after I file all my claims!!!!!
I wish I could say that this would pay for a trip to Disney, but I am thrilled to say that this will cover most of the amount I promised my son I would pay this semester for his college tuition!!!!!! (His tuition and fees are about $3000, I get about $1200 credit from my job at the U towards his tuition, so this will cover the rest!!!) I am going to drop some of the coverages, which will save us about $60 per week or $3120 per year…so hopefully I will get a Disney trip this year after I pay some bills. The best part – I still have other bills to try to lower, and all my coupon savings too!!
I am so happy to find this money for his college tuition so that he does not have to take out a loan. Thanks again for inspiring me to check my bills.
Do you have an inspirational story to share? Please include it in the comments below or feel free to email it to me. I would love to feature it on Couponing to Disney!
