Disney glow sticks - 4 for $1 at the dollar store!

Last week I wrote about how we surprised our kids with a trip to Disney World

Now it’s time to show the video – how long did my daughter scream when we told her we were going to Disney?

(Pictured here is one of my top Disney budget hacks – glowsticks are $15 in park, or 4 / $1 if you buy them at home!)


We are still talking about the record high offer for the SPG Amex cards – 35,000 points for both the personal and business card

If you’ve already got the cards, you can also get up to 5,000 SPG points for referring your friends 

What I’m most angry about this week is how I just threw away 4,000 Starpoints for being disorganized!


I enjoyed my stay at the Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru – in fact I’m amazed at how it’s only a Category 2 Hilton!

But what really confused me was the fact that they wanted you to sign out pool towels with your room key!

Have you ever seen anything like that?
