Can't stop spending!
 
And I'm not talking about the big expenses (air, hotel, etc.) - I'm talking about all the other stuff draining my bank account - the new "shoes for Disney," the "new purse for Disney", the "new pajamas, bathing suits, etc." All the extra "stuff I need for my trip"...lol

DH thinks I'm crazy. Anyone else aboard the spending train??

Lets see new shoes, clothing, luggage for kids, things to do in the car, new dvd player, ummmm it keeps adding up!!!! LOL I am right there with you!!!

O and we bought a new van too......so I think I have over done it:confused3:confused3

Wow! You have me beat with the new vehicle! lol I've been saving like a mad person up until 3-4 months ago, so it's nice to buy things, but I think this train is out of control!

I always spend a lot getting ready for the trip. We always get new clothes to wear. Wouldn't want to be wearing the same outfits as last year in the photos, lol. My DH is okay with it to a certain point. Last year he bought DVD players for the car ride so the kids would be entertained so he can't say much. Right after our last trip I started shopping sales for next years trip. I just buy up a size for the kids and it works out okay and I'm not spending alot right before the trip if I'm buying a little here and there along the way. DH and I wait to buy ours because of weight gain or loss.

OMG I know!!!! "The kids need all Disney jammies to wear there and since it's winter here when we go, they need the next size up in short jammies" "I need a Disney tote bag to use there...oh, and a new shirt or three" "I need a new..." "We have to have..." It never ends!

I am totally suffering from the "gotta get it for Disney" syndrome. On my way to Target in just a bit...hoping to stick to my list but not sure that will happen:worried:

Oh yeah, I'm out of control already. DH thinks I've lost it...especially since it seems like I work all the angles so hard to get every plausible discount or deal.... then I spend that + on clothings, supplies & accessories to get us ready to go.

I've been hitting clearance sales for 2 weeks & plan on hitting our local Disney store this weekend along with the outlets. I've only just begun! :rotfl:

I think my DH was convinced I had gone completely mad when I spent $15 on a blank, empty, 5x8" binder to store my Disney Planning materials! lol.. I use these boards as my source for all that I need. I just showed him the pics of others' binders and he understood my insanity..lol

missdisney1017 09-21-2012 02:57 PM

Is there any site on line to buy inexpensive disney stuff besides the disney store/outlet?

alc571 09-21-2012 03:12 PM

You can check out Etsy. It has neat stuff on it. I'm in Canada, so we have the Disney Store online and that's it. We are renting a car, so we plan on stopping at the WalMart near WDW on our way to buy snacks/water, etc and some cheap Disney souvenirs.

I've been to the mall several time for trip necessities:
New Crocs for everyone. We LOVE our Crocs in the parks. I hate having sweaty cramped up feet in socks and sneakers.
New crossbody Dooney & Bourke bag to for my park bag.
2 new sets of luggage for our family. They were an awesome deal at TJ Maxx and our old ones were starting to fall apart.
Portable dvd player for kids to watch movies on the plane. Don't forget the accessories, need 2 sets of earphones and the carrying case.
Snacks (one suitcase will hold snacks for the room and at the parks) We fly Southwest and each get to check 2 bags so we have plenty of room for stuff.
A small notebook for trip notes to write a TR when I get back. Not just a regular one, it has to be cute for Disney.
T-Shirts for everyone bought at the Disney Store - on sale 2 for $20 beats WDW prices. I bought several for each person to wear throughout the trip.
Lots of Disney themed Walmart, Target, and Dollar Store trinkets the kids will be surprised with each morning. If they get something new each morning they'll (hopefully) beg for fewer souvenirs.
I have to take my own shampoo/conditioner with me. I have long hair that tangles easily.
Oh my...the shopping list I have for toiletries is crazy.
New laundry bags to put our dirty laundry in.
I have a very long list of things I "need" for the trip.
A new camera - got one with 20x zoom so I could zoom in on shows/parades/whatever from a distance. Need good pictures!

I too find my spending out of control as my trip gets closer. And The Dis isn't helping! ;). I had to buy some Keen sandals to wear on the trip because The Dis told me to. I had to buy a hanging shoe organizer and a popup hamper because The Dis told me to. I had to buy waterproof mascara because The Dis told me to. I had to buy a Bagallini because The Dis told me to. I had to buy a costume to wear to MNSSHP because the Dis told me to. I had to buy some body glide because...well you get the picture...:earboy2:

OMG, you are too funny! I've done the same thing though. I bought things I never thought of because it was mentioned on The Dis! Like the shoe organizer, M&M containers for pennies, etc.

going in June 2013 and already "spending"
 
I can't stop and I still have 9 months before we're going! I'm buying all the items for the "bags" like ponchos, halloween is a great time to buy all the glow in the dark light up toys for night time in the parks, water bottles that fold up in a pocket when they are empty, toys and treats for "disney surprise baskets" to "magically" appear on the kids beds the 1st day we arrive at our resort...you name it I'm finding SOMETHING every where I go I can add to my giant 60 gallon tote in my closet....I even started buying gift cards for disney and restraunts near our resort for dinners and such....my DH doesn't know i've even started spending for these items but when it comes time for him to actually start thinking about it he will be happy to know its already ALL fully paid for..so I guess he won't be mad when he finds out ...I hope :bitelip:
