People who have lifestyles that allow them to dress like it's summer year-round. People who can travel in ways that doesn't require their luggage to have closures on it.
@Tupperwear FOR REAL
Reading this is so surreal to me, after the years and years I spent without health insurance. I can't imagine a time when I would not have wanted to get a checkup if I had the ability to do so.
You certainly don't have to know how to sew to be a fashion designer.
@PeggyDear Speaking for myself, I loved working when I was in high school. It gave me a sense of control over my life and high school socializing held limited appeal. I'm really glad I worked and skipped all the drama because I had a great time socializing in college, which I wouldn't have been able to do if I hadn't worked in high school. I think you should let your kids have a say based on what their priorities are.
I discovered TravelFashionGirl's packing lists and they changed my entire traveling life: http://travelfashiongirl.com/functional-and-fashion-packing-list/ She is oriented towards women but I think men can easily adapt her methods. I went to Scotland for 2 weeks last spring using 1 carry-on and actually found I overpacked using the 10-item list - I could have easily gotten away with the 6-item list. Budget tip for using packing cubes - I sometimes just use mesh laundry bags (the kind you wash sweaters in) instead of packing cubes and they work about as well without the price tag.
@garli I think it's also a weirdly specific thing to lie about, and maintain that lie over a period of time. THAT is the red flag to me.
@lisaf I look with an intention to buy, than don't as well. Then I get on a plane and think "noise-cancelling headphones would have been nice right about now".
@MemphisBlues I love a good waffle maker.
