OOP quandary - Help!!

4 of us heading down in December. Tickets purchased, studio at OKW rented w/ points from a DVC member and non-refundable RT airline tickets purchased. Planning on paying OOP for meals but recently had to use all the money I had set aside to purchase a new vehicle after a accident. Now I need all the advice I can get on how to reduce my budget. We'll be there nine days w/ 4 people over 13. My budget is about $1200. Is that doable? Any suggestions?

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

I'm sorry for the unexpected "snag" in your plans. That stinks.

In addition to this thread, you may get a lot of really fantastic suggestions if you post your question over on the Budget Board! http://disboards.com/forumdisplay.ph...sprune=30&f=22

Sorry I don't have many suggestions.

Since you are at a studio at OKW you will have a fridge and microwave. I would purchase groceries from Garden Grocer, they deliver to Disney resorts. I would eat breakfast in the room, bring water to the park and snacks.
You essentially have $130/day or $32/ person. I imagine that would take care of a counter service lunch and dinner
