My next trip is going to cost me $1,600, which is the most I've ever paid for a vacation, but it's also my longest trip yet, and I got a good deal, since I booked it with the bounce-back promo, so I don't feel too badly about it, LOL. I'm going for twelve nights, and staying at Pop Century with the deluxe Disney dining plan, which I'm very excited about. All those signature restaurants are calling to me. Since I booked this last fall, (and since I paid the $200 deposit right away,) I've been putting aside $100 or so a month to pay it off all at once. It's much easier for me to put aside $100 a month, and not keep it in my budget then it is to pay for it all at once, and owe my credit card money for months. I am probably going to get my flight for "free" with airline miles, so I don't have to worry about spending any money there. I also have saved all my Christmas and birthday money, as well as lose change, so I don't have to "budget" any money for souveniers. A year's worth of change really adds up, KWIM?
