Want to learn how to save $700 for your next vacation just by saving your pocket change?
Our next trip to Disney is booked and we leave on September 17th!
This will be our 4th time there and our 4th Disney trip paid for in CASH. We come home from our Disney vacation not owing one penny to the credit card companies.
To book the trip you need $200. Then I pay off a little every few weeks.
I also Purchase Disney Gift cards online at Raise.com at a discounted price. (Get $5 off your First Disney Gift Card when you sign up Here) I buy them at Target with my Red Card and save 5%. And I also have a Chase Debit Card and save 10% on any merchandise I buy in Disney when I spend $50 or more.
A friend of mine did this for her last Disney trip and said it was the easiest way she ever saved $600 so I just had to try it!
She found the idea on Pinterest. While researching it, I read that if you fill up a 2 liter bottle with Dimes you will have about $700 in cash. She claims her bottle was just about full and she had a little over $600 so that’s still good enough for me!
So here it is…
I told the boys to each grab their Piggy banks and take out all the dimes they had. I then grabbed our coin jar and took out all of our dimes and here is what we have so far! We have a little over 8 months to fill it up!
You can’t fit quarters in it and the boys also wanted to do one with Quarters so we will be decorating a coffee can as soon as I can get my hands on one and we will be saving all quarters too.
I will be sure to let you know right before we leave for Disney how much we ended up saving and show you our progress!
I think this is a not only an EXCELLENT IDEA but fun for the kids and adults to do! And..a super easy way to save money! I mean it’s only dimes! 🙂
I plan on also dropping some singles in there from time to time if I have a few extras in my wallet since I very rarely carry cash anyway and use my debit for everything. You can make more than one bottle and just save save save until you even have enough to pay off an entire vacation! 🙂
WHAT YOU WILL NEED :
Empty 2 Liter Bottle
Whatever you want to use to decorate your bottle with.
