The 6 month mark

Posted by couponingtodisney on December 2, 2009


Today is exactly 6 months since I started saving towards the Disney fund. Before I say anything else, I need to make a deposit. I got $14 from Mindfield. $1807.51 cash saved since June 1st! That means I met my first goal!

So where did all this money come from? Here’s the official break down:

$28 from Lightspeed

$370 from My Survey

$54 from Mindfield

$112.60 from Opinion Outpost

$15 from YouData

$30 via Paypal from Swagbucks

$25.50 from Survey Head

$23.73 check from Viewpoints Forum

$505.70 rebates

$138.68 in loose change

$11.97 in interest

$157 by consigning the kids clothes

$135 in found money

$184.37 in found money

$8 from Buzzback

$8 from American Consumer Panel

I am absolutely blown away at how quickly the Disney fund has grown. I started saving on June 1st and that first $100 dollars came so slow. But since then, it has grown so fast! And I haven’t even been as diligent about it as I had intended to be. (Life keeps getting in the way of the Disney fund).

So what’s next? Well my goal was to save $1800 by being a Smart Shopper. The rest of the cost of the trip would of come from my husband’s bonus in the spring. However, it looks like I am going to be able to save for the whole thing by being a Smart Shopper!

Our first trip cost us $2600. So I am going to set the new goal at $2600 by 5/20 (the day before we leave!).
