A New Trip Planned = A New Goal

A lot has happened since we paid for our last Disney trip with trash.  We purchased a home AND we adopted a sweet little girl from China.   So our saving goals have been a lot different the past couple of years, but we are excited to say that we have decided to head to Disney in the fall of 2017 and want to pay for it solely from "extra" money (not money normally in our monthly budget).   I'll be keeping track on the side bar as we save.  Thankfully, we have many months to reach our goal of $4500!!!

Right now, the breakdown of our goal looks something like this:

$500 from Disney Visa Rewards (we pay this off monthly and only use the card for large expenses)
$600 from Swagbucks (this is assuming that Zak and I both make $25/month from now until next August)
$3400 from trash sales

If I break down the trash sales into 52 weeks, we need to make $65/week from trash.  I guess we better get started!
