#SOL22: Notifications

“Your tracked flight is now $… (was $…)” Two days in a row. Prices inching up like the gas pumps. Breaking Point? Is it time to dig in and purchase? There’s a long list of tasks that I should be completing. Other things I would rather do. Some homework. Another blog post where I need to hit publish . . . And yet . . .

Is it procrastination? Is it an optimistic hope that prices will decrease? Is it just a lack of time to sit down and review the details?

If Coco can deliver meals, who can deliver flight bookings? Coco in Santa Monica last week . . .

Food Delivery. Flight, hotel, car reservations. What services are you adding back into your life? How will you measure success?

  1. The delivery services are amazing…as are gas prices. On the news yesterday was a segment about rural volunteer fire departments struggling to fill up their engine tanks with fuel at such astronomical cost. Ramifications we haven’t even considered, and which are yet to be…. thank you for this quick-hitting, reflective post.

    1. Thanks, Fran. The astronomical fuel prices make me so angry when I look at 2021 oil company profits.

      1. It is hard to know when to wait and when to buy. I am sure lots of these “services” may not always have our best economic wishes at heart…

      2. Have I ever gotten a notice the fare has decreased? Now I am really wondering.

  2. Flights are so high right now that my husband and I punted a summer trip and are instead booking our November NCTE flight in include both CA and New Mexico. Your post is reminding me that we should book that flight sooner than later. Thank you.

    I find your questions so compelling – What services are you adding back into your life?
    Yesterday we thought we were going to addd visiting a title office in-person to sign papers. Then Brian tested positive for Covid. So we parked at the curb, the man came down. We used purell and took turns signing and wearing masks. We thought we are ready to add visiting an office but this isn’t over yet. Travel safely, Fran!

    1. What a plan for NCTE! I’m looking forward to details and dates for NCTE.
      Hope Brian has a mild case and you dodge it. Just when we think life is calmer, we get a reminder that life’s not YET ready to be 100% free and wild!

  3. I saw a Coco cart recently and wondered if it really worked. Maybe I need to try it! Good luck with booking your travel. We are in Southern California and the difference between flying out of Los Angeles to Mexico versus driving to the border and taking a domestic flight within Mexico–$400 per ticket!! We’ll be getting up early and driving to the border this weekend.

    1. Vivian,
      Coco – only seen it on the sidewalks. Intriguing!
      Just knowing all the travel possibilities. The bargains of the good old days may be gone but I just flew cross country for a round trip price of $300 so it’s nice to have options. We’ll see how this goes because it’s not much more than a last minute trip four years ago.
      Bargain hunter me is still searching!

  4. My head just spins with the daily price changes. Where will it all end? We need to search for bargains so that we can get the most for our money, but, oh my, it can be exhausting.

    1. Spinning is an accurate descriptor. and yes to the exhausting!
