Request Check for Airline Overbooking

Buying Gas on a Road Trip
On our most recent road trip we were thankful to find that gas was much cheaper than at home. However, I still wanted to get the best deal I could find. In many towns, driving just a block or two into town saved as as much as $0.40/gal!

Emergency Bag for Car Trips

If you don't want to carry a purse or wallet, at the beach or even vacationing, roll up some cash and slip into a clean Chapstick type container. Then slip into your bag or pocket. You'll have easy money on you and no one will be the wiser! I also leave one in my car, just in case I need it!
