I got a good idea from another site,nothing staggering but we will do it.I had a old water cooler jug and wrote on it “FEED ME” All dimes, nickels, pennies go into the jug. And I will put a dollar bill in it every day. Not to pay for the trip, but for pocket money. Our cat, even though we have a catsitter hates us going on trips, so during the first night of the jug he rips off the sign!!! I had to secure it much better!!
we also do that, but we start a count down on it from day 50, and tear off a day…everyday! We also went to town decorating IT, WE HAD A GREAT TIME DOING THAT! We taped favorite pictures from the past trips, and cut outs.
