Subscription Boxes Review

I have ordered three different boxes over a few months. The Three boxes were Degusta, BomBath and Mickey Monthly.

The first two I only did one and the last I did six months.

Degusta is a Food Box. A lot of the food is from other countries. I only use a couple items the rest I gave to other friends. The things I got were interesting but I only did it once because of the price. It's $20 a box.

BomBath is a bath items. I order the 4 bath bombs at $25 for the box. i just ordered it just to see what it was .

Mickey Monthly is Disney items. I got the One Pin box. I did it for six months. out the six pins that I got I put two in bag.

I did want to try them out. There are a lot of boxes out there. I found the thought

Why I'm a Snow Queen AZ

Your wondering why I call myself Snow Queen AZ? Well here is the answer! I'm a real Snow Queen! My whole life I haven't had any friends or a family that cared. I live a life spent alone.
Where the AZ comes from is the fact I live in Arizona.

Growing up I had a hard time with things. I went to school like anybody else but I never had friends. So I went to school and then back home to spend time in my room. Growing up in the 60s and 70s was my easy. I was showing signs of a Mental Illness. At that time my parents took a blind eye to it. I didn't start getting treatment for it until I left home and lived on my own. During that time I tried go to college and working. That wasn't easy. I was told to drop out of school by many teachers and work was hard too.

It got to the point of my ending up in the hospital. That is where I was diagnosed with a Bipolar Disorder. That is where my treatment started.  In the beginning things weren't easy.

I lived in Seattle WA. I went many doctors dealing with many different treatments. I found a doctor that believed in the way that I wanted to do it. And that was just having someone to talk to.

It's hard for me to make friends. The Friends that I have made leave after a while. It got to the point that I don't need them. I found that people Use Abuse and Lose me. 

I did meet a great guy. We were together for 6 year on and off. Most of that was long distance. That ended when he said to me "Let's get married." I had to answer "No" and he left. He never knew that reason. After that I life alone and stay away from people.

That is when I became a Snow Queen. I spend a lot of time alone. The only time I talk to people is when I have to.

Why I vacation at Walt Disney World is because they take care of things. I don't have to worry about getting around because they take care of it. I also like it because I can be around other people. I do talk to a lot of people. I have a story that I tell about myself. I hide the fact that I have a illness. It's a place that I can have a normal life. If it is for a few days.

How much time I spend doing Swag Bucks

I have been on Swag Bucks for going on 5 years. I have made $5K in that time. But that takes a lot of time to get to. I make $100 a month but still I put in a lot of time.
First I'm home all the time so Swag Bucks is something I do to pass the time. I also do this while I'm watching TV. I get things started first thing in the morning. The time that can be 9-12 hours. That is a lot of time to put in but that is what it take to make $100 a month.

What I do is watch Videos. sign up for things, and from buying things online.

There are things it can run themselves. Most these thing can take up to a hour to run. So in that hour of time I can go and do other things. I also run  my desktop and laptop. Sometimes I run my tablet to make the goals.

Even when I go on a trip I do Swag Bucks. I only use a laptop so I only make the first goal.

It's possible to make money online but it take time.

How I find the Best Airfare

Air fares can be different each day. One day it is high and a week later it's low. You can hear many different people say the best time to buy but it always doesn't work. I fly Southwest Air. I have a easy way. If the Airline has a Flex Calendar and you can be flexible you can find a good fare. When I start looking for a fare I start looking 6-7 months before I want to go. If I find the flight that I want to take and if the fare is fair I will book the flight. If the fare goes lower all I do is re book the flight. I always go  for the Wanna Get Away fares. Now I always find the lowest to begin with but if the fare is lower I can use for another flight.

How I Plan my Trip to Disney

I travel to Disney twice a year. I have a Annual Pass so I don't have to buy tickets when I go.
When I plan my trips are based on Airfares. I fly on Southwest Airlines so I'm on the lookout for low fares. I have a limit of $200 each way for a flight. Since I fly out of a small airport I have a limit of 4-5 flights to Orlando. When I look for a flight I look at when the flight get into Orlando. The flight can be a flight that it leave in the morning and getting in the afternoon or flight that leave in the afternoon and get in early in the morning. It just depend on fare. My current trip I found a deal of $132 for a flight that gets in early in the morning. It is a cheap airfare but I have to spend 3 hours layover in Vegas, it not bad because I know what I can do to fill the time. The big thing is not to play the slots. When I look for a fare I have at least three dates in mind. For my next trip I have a date in Sept, Nov and Dec. So it just depend on fare.

When I narrow it down to a date I check Disney's website for rooms. Since I have pass I do a Room Only. The way all I have to do is paid for first night and pay the rest when I get there. Sometimes it can be full rate but I will be looking for a discount so doing room only. When I get a discount what I have to pay when I get there goes down.

Since there is a limited flights from the airport where I live. I can travel up to Phoenix where there are more flights and fares are some what better I have to travel 2 hours to get there. So the fare and the cost of travel it is better to fly out the smaller airport.

How to make the Refillable Mug worth it

The Refillable Mug is a mug at WDW. It is a offered in the Dining Plan or you can buy it. I buy it every trip so I try to make it worth the money I paid. I always bring a  empty wide mouth bottle. I take the bottle and fill it with ice then I will fill the mug with soda. Then I pour it into the bottle. Then I have something to drink while I'm at the park. Doing this way is legal to do. All you are doing the mug with soda.

I bring two bottles with me.  I will refill the bottles 5 times every day.. Doing that many times can cover the cost of the mug after the first day.
In the morning I will go to fill the first bottle while I get some breakfast. The second on my way out to the park. The third and fourth I will go to take a break or grab some lunch at some resort, then #5 I will refill it before going to my room. Soda  is $5 in the parks. Filing the bottles as many times as I do would cost $25 a day. I pay $20 for the mug so it made back the first day.

You can go to any Resort Food Court to get a refill.

How I can afford to go to Disneyworld

I travel to Disney World at least twice a year. I live on a fixed income and don't work. I make extra money by doing Swagbucks. I live in Arizona. I don't own a house or car. I get rid of my credit cards. I have a Pre Paid Card it's the Bluebird card and it is sold though Walmart. It's backed by American Express so it doesn't have fees.

After all my bills are paid I put $300 each month on the card. I budget out 4-5 months ahead of time. When I have $1200 budget out I start planing a trip. During this time I'm checking airfares. When I see a cheap airfare I start getting my Disney Plans made.

I fly on Southwest Airline. They have good fares and don't charge for bags. The flights that leave in the mornings don't get on the late afternoon so I take on of the late flight. These flights leave in the afternoon and get in  early morning. The booking doesn't start until the time I get to MCO so I have to spend some time at the airport before getting to go to the resort. I can spend 3-4 hours at the airport so I do have pillow so I can sleep.

I have a Annual Pass so I don't have to buy tickets so I book a Room Only.

When I come to Shopping and Eating I do buy two Gift Cards. I buy them before I go because I get fuel points that I give to a friend that drives me get to use.

Doing Swagbucks I can make $100 a month so when I make $400 I can pay for my airfare.

It is possible to go to Disney World when living on a budget.
