Mine goes in the savings account but I have a two line spread sheet for that account. Savings and Disney savings! Disney savings are paraded on the fridge where the kids also track their saved spending money. Deal is I double whatever they save so how much they have is kind of down to them. Currently my 11 year old DD is whipping her older brother's ***!! I save spending money in cash and drop it in a different account. Still have 1k to put into this. As that's cash based I don't think it's for this thread. So... Paid for flights outright from the current account when I booked them so they are done, paid for the car hire outright from the current account when I booked it so that's done, paid for Discovery Cove plus Sea World and Aquatica the same way when I booked them so that's also dealt with leaving 3,945 for hotel, DDP upgrade and 14 day tickets. My saving line for that is at 2k so 2k left to go..... Plus about £200 for the airport hotel but that's less than two weeks supermarket food money during a period when we are away for 16 days so I'll probably just pay that when we check out from my current account. If I've saved it I'm quids in when we get home so I will try to!!!

I don't keep track of mine anywhere exciting just in my Filofax, however I know I have paid off £825 of my August trip, which is half way! I also have £400 saved for spending money :D

I have also paid my £125 deposit for DLRP in October this year and also paid off £100 which is around a quarter :D

On top of that I have saved £350 towards our October 2014 WDW trip which is around one third! and we haven't even booked that yet! :D

All of this while also saving for a deposit for a house! I must be insane haha

We have a savings account. We put any spare money in it. Hope to have all our flights saved up by the end of the year. I have budgeted £2000 for flights but hope they are a few hundred cheaper. We haven't agreed on accommodation yet as i want to stay at Disney but my 11 year old daughter and partner want a villa. I want my little girl to get to stay at Akl like her big sister did.

Well we have only changed £500 and thats towards food. We have another £650 for food DD has £300 I have £800 and DB has £800 so another £2550 to change!,!!!. Was hanging on to see if we can get $1.50 but its looking unlikely. We go in 32 days . All the food is going on the fairfx card as we have two cards on the same account
Always taken TC and cash mixture but not sure if TC are the way to go anymore. Do not use CCards so may stick with FFax and cash.

Well done everyone..... It soon adds up

Just got an email from Music Magpie to say our most recent order had all been accepted.

I'm keen to update the ticker - but I'm being strict and only doing it once the money is transferred to my savings account. Should add another % or 2 though.

I should try that. I've got quite a few cd's and dvds. Probably will not get much money for them but need a clear out

Yeah we've done two loads now.

It's computer games that really make the money. Our first batch got us over £100, which we put towards furniture for baby.

This lot was mainly DVDs so was a less, as some are only 30p or so. But still, it clears room in our house, and even if I could get more on ebay I can't be bothered to list and post 50+ items that are going to only get £1 each maximum and some of which that probably won't sell.

I'm the same. In one way, I'm tempted to add what I put in the piggybank to my ticker, but that's just going to end up confusing me someday and I might add the same amount twice. So I'm only adding what I've actually got in our savings account.

We switched broadband provider to a cheaper one so the savings will be going straight into our saving fund. Plus also going to cancel our sky subscription (we realised mostly watch the free channel's) and that money will be going to our saving fund too. So that's £40 a month. Will add up over the year!!
