Yeah, I’m Not A Planner

Another blog post by Mr. Deals… I don’t know about you, but I’m not much of a planner. When it comes to new destinations, I do a little research and keep a few ideas in my head and then usually I’m just directed around by Mrs. Deals. Don’t get me wrong, I like having some…

I Made 2 Mistakes

Another blog post by Mr. Deals… Mrs. Deals just gave me a stern talking to, a really stern talking to. “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” “It’s like you just threw away $180.”  Blah blah blah blah. After I apologized and admitted I screwed up (most wives tend to appreciate this, but not in this case),…

Mr. Deals is back, I think

For those of you that might not remember me, I am Mr. Deals, the better half of the owner of this blog :-). Awhile back, I actually had a Sunday column and I must say, I think I was a key part of the growth of this little blog (yes, I’m patting myself on the…

The Companion Pass Battle

Another blog post from Mr. Deals… It’s no secret that Mrs. Deals is a huge fan of the Southwest Companion Pass. It’s allowed us to travel around the US for so cheap over the past few years and most recently allowed us to fly down to Aruba during one of the busiest times of year…

Will Travel With Baby

Another blog post from Mr. Deals… I think I’ve found my new travel buddy. Her name is Baby Deals, she’s just past 18 months old, and wow, does she make getting through the airport a breeze.

What’s in your bag?

Another blog post from Mr. Deals… First item to go in Mr. Deals suitcase, a pair of board-shorts. Comment Mr. Deals receives from Mrs. Deals upon beginning packing:  “Why do you always bring a bathing suit?!” Lets face it, with hotels all trying to outdo one another these days you never really know when you…

A Promotion I Am Finally Excited About

Another blog post from Mr. Deals… A guy walks into a Cadillac dealership. He’s in his young 30’s, he’s got long shaggy hair, is unshaven (probably hasn’t shaved for 3-4 days), his sideburns are a little longer than the norm, he’s wearing his “weekend jeans” and a patagonia jacket. The sales guys look at him…

The end of the bed issue

Another blog post from Mr. Deals… I’d like to address an ongoing problem I’ve found at hotels over the years. It might not be something everyone notices, but I’ve noticed it far too many times and most recently on a trip Mrs. Deals and I took. While Mrs. Deals and I were in Vegas, staying…

Mrs. Deals, Amatuer Traveler

Another blog post from Mr. Deals… With baby deals in the mix, it’s been awhile since Mrs. Deals and I have had a chance to travel like the young spring chicken we used to be. We’ve enjoyed some family trips and I’ve had a few business trips solo, but those are totally different than when…
