Default *SIGH* Hate being broke.

So I log onto the internal Walt Disney World website today, and taunting me is a 2n Disney Dream preview cruise. $200 outside cabin, +fees. A little under $270 total. Can book up to 2 cabins. And I just can't afford to do it. *grumble* Oh well, life goes on.

Past cruises:

Disney Dream - Dec 2013 4n Bahamas
Disney Dream - Dec 2012 4n Bahamas
Carnival Imagination - Dec 2011 4n Western
Carnival Imagination - Nov 2010 4n Western
Costa Atlantica - Dec 2009 7n Eastern

My opinions are mine and mine alone. They do not represent the opinions of The Walt Disney Company nor any of its subsidiaries.

You need to start a regular savings routine.
Even if you cant spare much there are things you can do.
I save all my change for the year and do NOT spend any of it. By the end of the year I have had as much as $400.00 .

I dont miss the change and it adds up fast.

Also I save all my one dollar bills. I put them in a small safe and pretend they do NOT exist. I never spend the . You have to be adamit about it.

Last year I had almost $600.00 saved in ones alone.

In Oregon all pop cans and bottles are returnable so I save 100% of that money too. Even though we like to use debit or credit cards isntead of cash I make sure I take out at least one $20 to spend for bread, milk etc.. and save the change of course.

I also have a cash back credit card that I always use for my gas and groceries and get 2% cash back. I pay it off every week on line so I never get a huge bill and never have to pay interest.
Everytime it gets to $100.00 I send for it, then save that too.

With all of this I paid for 2 weeks at WDW last month and now I am saving for our 4 day Dream cruise.

I know it doesnt sound like alot but it really adds up fast.

Hope you can try and save some $$ too for a cruise.

We have been through being laid off 2 times in 3 years and now live in an RV with our stuff in storage and I still manage to save some $$ every month. If I can do it, so can you!!

Good luck!!

20 DCL cruises and counting!
1 Carnival Glory cruise

Waiitng for the new ships to arrive for more magical cruises!!
