    Destash 2019 Time to Trash the Stash!

    Well, I got quite derailed from my cleanout efforts. My husband and I took in three foster children and a lot more has been coming into my house than going out. I am up to 678/2019 items, but I'm afraid I've taken in a lot more than 678 items.

    Disney Gift Card Deals

    I found buying 725 worth of gift cards the sweet spot. With the 5% off from Target that brings the total down to 688.75 *.07 = 48.21. I also bought 12.00 of random crap I needed so I maxed out the 50, but if you only want to buy gift cards, I believe 725 (500, 200, & 25) is your best bet.

    Disney dining plan costs compared to paying on own

    I'm another one who can't get past the prices and I don't even have kids - but I am an accountant. My husband insisted we get the DDP this trip because he knows I order cheap or try to change where we are eating to a cheaper place or convince him to not get the super expensive item or drink...

    Why did MDE let me book FP well before 60 days?

    Currently, only April through 30 days is available and it won't even let me scroll to May. What I am seeing now. Yesterday - April through 30 days was available and then greyed out for the rest and all of May was greyed out except for my trip week was available.

    Why did MDE let me book FP well before 60 days?

    And today, I can no longer book FPs for my reservation. When I try to book, it is only giving me the 30 day window (my reservation is greater than 60 days away by a few days). All the FP's I made yesterday are there, but I cannot make any new ones.

    Why did MDE let me book FP well before 60 days?

    Yes, all 9 days could be booked. I only booked 5 days for everyone else as that is all there tickets are for.

    Why did MDE let me book FP well before 60 days?

    I'm glad I stumbled on this thread because I was able to make fast passes today and couldn't figure out why. Here's my complicated situation. My husband and I are AP. Rest of my family have military tickets which I linked this morning. We are staying in 3 separate rooms 5/25-6/1 at Saratoga...

    My brain is about to explode.Help with BOG reservations.

    Does your husband have his MDE set up? If so, you can tweak the reservation by logging into his account.

    Be Out Guest Lunch

    So my extended family is going in May. My husband and I will *probably* be on the DDP and everyone else will be cash. We are all going to BOG for lunch one day and I booked the reservation for 9. My husband and I also are in the finishing stages of becoming foster parents so there is a good...

    Why we are removing the DDP from our upcoming trip

    Ok that's make so much sense now. In my head, I was thinking "hmmm...I wonder if I am mis-calculating the savings somehow." The 10 YO would be a huge deal breaker for me. My husband really wants to do the dining plan because he knows I can't let go of the prices on the menu otherwise. I will...

    Why we are removing the DDP from our upcoming trip

    Where are you planning on eating? I've been calculating the places we are going vs. the cost and I *think* we will come out ahead even without getting alcohol at every meal or ordering the most expensive item. This is just for me and my husband and includes 0.00 allocated to the drink cup...

    Quick Service on DDP

    I agree with @SaharanTea's quick service selections. For snacks I also like MK - Peter Pan float EP - caramel corn Funnel Cake (I believe you can get this at several parks)

    Paying Part Cash and Part Dining Plan

    To complicate things a bit. My husband and I are both AP holders and are planning on getting the dining plan. We are going with family and will have three rooms total, but are the only ones getting DDP. At meals together we want to be able to use the DDP for some credits and 10% AP on the...

    Destash 2019 Time to Trash the Stash!

    I've been sick all weekend, so I haven't made much progress. I did finally finish boxing up some items for goodwill that I had cleaned out and counted them. I also threw away a pair of shoes, a broken basket, and a couple of other things. I also have a bag of clothes to give to my mom. All...

    Destash 2019 Time to Trash the Stash!

    I finished my DVD project and am sending a bunch of extra hangers to my mother-in-law. My total is 445/2019 or 22%. Since, the government is reopening and I am going back to work Monday, my destashing progress will slow, but am grateful for the progress made so far. Hoping to do a little more...

    Destash 2019 Time to Trash the Stash!

    I was in Vegas visiting my dad this weekend and just got back. My sister picked me and my mom up at the airport and when they dropped me off, they each took several items I was getting rid of. So that's 10 more items. 201/2019 or 10% done

    Destash 2019 Time to Trash the Stash!

    I got mine off Amazon. I just googled DVD holder. I ended up spending a little more to buy holders that look like actual books and were about 20 each because I wanted to display them. A giant CD holder would also work. We were not keeping any of the cases or art work, so that made it easier.

    Destash 2019 Time to Trash the Stash!

    So today's project was DVD cleanout (I'm furloughed and trying to make the best of it). We decided to put all the DVD's into a couple of DVD books and get rid of the cases to cut down on space. I ended up throwing out 103 DVD cases tonight before my books were full. I've ordered two more...
