On Survey: Does It Always Make Sense to Go for the Lowest Fare?

@Liz the Lemur A round-trip flight from MSP-JFK still brings the total to about $1k. *sigh*. (Though one time I did fly round-trip to CPH from ORD for less than $700.)

On Survey: Does It Always Make Sense to Go for the Lowest Fare?

@Liz the Lemur Upon further investigation, it seems that this is indeed possible. WHAT. Life Changed.

On Survey: Does It Always Make Sense to Go for the Lowest Fare?

For a second I thought that you had found a US-Norway round-trip flight for THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS and I was going to freak out. (And send the link to my roommate, whose S.O. lives in Sweden.) But it makes much more sense that it's an inter-E.U. flight.

On When Smartphone Insurance Isn't Worth It

@Allison Yup, another otterbox evangelist here. I found honey on my phone (case) the other day... no idea how it got there, but this is the life I put my phone through.

On Terrible Financial Decisions That I Have Made or Am Considering Making

I'm always glad to see a range of personal finance essays, and not just "I made all the *right* decisions, you should too!" ones. Everyone makes different decisions for different reasons, and it's all about deciding what's important to you. :)

On Terrible Financial Decisions That I Have Made or Am Considering Making

@Katni MPLS is still 5 hours to Cedar Rapids... I think Chicago is 4 hours. People were surprised when I wanted to stay in the midwest for college, but flights are definitely part of it. And I've stayed in Minneapolis after college mostly because it's a great city. (I currently live in MPLS with family in Dubuque, IA).

On We're All Shopping At Our Desks Today Right? OK Great

I wasn't going to do any shopping at all and then I saw that Loft has a 50% off everything (including sale) items. But I got sensible things! My current black cardigan has a hole in it!
