We kicked off 2020 with a Saving for Disney challenge before the virus pandemic. We are still working towards the goal, but man…I know it is hard to even think about Disney during this time.
If you aren’t aware of what the challenge is, take a moment to read over this post (You’ll also find a link to past week’s recaps in that post). You can jump in at any time….don’t think you can’t because you didn’t start with us. We do not have to all save at the same rate.
Are you ready to kick off your savings? I have a 5 Day Email Course that will teach you how to start saving for Disney now!

Save $1 Per Day
The thing I love the most about Saving for Disney is that it’s fun. Another fun way to save towards your trip (or whatever) is to challenge your family to save just $1 a day (on top of the other things you are doing to save). You can even get creative with the ways you save it and get the kids involved.
My husband and I started saving $1 a day early in our marriage. When we were married 10 years we had saved up for a pretty nice 10th anniversary trip fund. It really does add up and it’s not hard to do at all.
Look for Loose Change
Do you watch the ground for lost change when you are out and about? After reading this comment from my reader, I know I will always be looking…
Break Goals Into Smaller Chunks
Break your Disney Savings goals into smaller chunks. By saving for the smaller chunks, you’ll feel more accomplished.
Take the Coin Challenge
I am inventing a coin challenge as part of the Saving for Disney challenge. Go through your house and gather up all the spare change that you have. Check in the couch, the car, the washer, spare containers/cups, old purses, etc. Recruit the kids and make it a scavenger hunt. See how many coins that you can find.
Give Up 1 Thing For a Month
One way to help save for Disney is to pick out a different thing each month to sacrifice to grow your Disney fund. Maybe one month you give up your weekly dinner out in exchange for cooking at home and the next month you give up trips to the movie theater in exchange for watching movies at home. Take the money you save by sacrificing and put it in your fund instead.
