Disney Fund Update

We leave for our trip in a little less then two months.  So far our fund has paid for our flights ($600), car rental ($57), Disney trading pins ($11), and lanyards/autograph books/pens ($8).  I've budgeting about $200 for hotel and $850 for tickets.  I'm thinking we'll also want about $400 for food (we're going to splurge!) and anything else we might want while in the parks.  That said, we need about $850 more.

I've calculated that I need to sell FORTY more $20 items in the next seven weeks.  That's a lot.  But I love lofty goals and am determined to meet this one.  I truly want to pay for every aspect of this trip from trash (or items in my home that we don't use-though we don't have many of those).

Here goes nothing! Lucky number FORTY

The Best Trash Find EVER

There are no words for this piece of work.
My sister in law said it best when she remarked that she'd be afraid to put it in her house for fear she would wake up in the night to find it staring down at her.

So, what do you suppose I could get for it????
