Thrifty Thursday

New luggage!

And it was an awesome bargain!

On my last trip, I went with one of our older carry-on rolling bags,
and though it served it's purpose, it was difficult to organize and also
kept falling over every time I left it standing on it's own in the airport. lol

On my next trip in 2 weeks, I will need a bit more room, so I have opted to have a bag I can check in, and went in search of something more sturdy and with more features than our old luggage (which is at least 12 years old). The best deal I found (a Kenneth Cole canvas suitcase that retailed for $400, usually sold at Ross for $89.99, but was on clearance for $62.99) was unfortunately much too large for my needs and my height. It was nearly half as tall as I am. ;-)

Luckily my husband found this Revo aluminum frame red suitcase at a different Ross location.
And it was on clearance for $41.99! With a retail price of $260.

I had never heard of the Revo brand, but am quite impressed with the style, light weight aluminum framing, and interior pockets/organization! Also it has 4 wheels, so is much easier to maneuver and roll through an airport. This one is a 24" size, so must be checked in (thank goodness I'm flying Southwest, so that will not cost me),
and I'd love to find the smaller carry-on version of this if at all possible.

I can't wait to use it!

Happy Creating!
and happy travels!!
