    It's been running for about 16 years now, but I still get a chuckle out of the M&M's commercial where they see Santa Claus and the red M&M and Santa pass out at the site of each other.

    Thats pretty good, all right. But not uncommon. I love sitting in my seat watching luggage fall off the boarding conveyer....once I landed in Boise in the winter and my suitcase came off the carosel ripped and caked with mud. I took it to claims and they said, "Well, there's the easy way and there's the hard way to handle this. The easy way is you take one of the brand new suitcases we have right here, no questions asked, transfer your belongings, and leave. The Hard way is to fill out this form and wait."
    So I looked through my suitcase and my $300 jacket was fine, which was all I cared about, and took a new case. I will never put anything I care about in a suitcase again!

    Yes, sad to say, it's not uncommon. These days I sympathize with an acquaintenance who "shops" for travel at the Good Will and then leaves the clothes in his hotel room before the flight home, thus avoiding a suitcase charge.

    What an interesting solution! when I travel a short distance, I am generally tempted to wear my least favorite things and carry a book I'm willing to abandon and can easily replace. But your friend's method covers long distance travel that lasts for several days. I'll pass it along!

    He particularly likes it for cruises-the luggage comes on board free, and he ditches it before flying back. It's particularly good for him & his wife since they hate to dress up, but feel the need to have some dress up duds on a cruise. In S. Florida, the Good Wills are particularly well stocked, since so many people go there to die & their relatives leave the clothes at Good Will. Or the Habitat for Humanity operation there, which is similar.
