It's no secret that Nick and I plan to return to Disney. We miss it like crazy; it's where we want to be. Our plan is to attend the Spring 2016 DCP in Disney World, and then the Fall 2016 DCP in Disneyland and stay on in Disneyland if we can afford it. However, that poses a challenge.
A money challenge.
We're getting married and going on a Disneyland honeymoon in October, which isn't cheap. There are fees for both CPs, not to mention we want to pay our rent ahead of time if we can. That right there is over $1000 for each of us.
Therein lies our challenge. We are spending as little money as we can over the next few months. Yes, we're paying for the basics: tithe, rent, cell phones, gas, groceries, and school loans. Plus we both allot a tiny bit of free spending a month so we don't go crazy. But other than that we are shoving over $300 a month each into savings. It feels good, but it's a challenge. It takes effort to not go buy that book I want, or purchase more planner supplies.
But I know this challenge is worth it. Because in the end, our dreams are worth it.
