    I thought I was just holding out for knitting accessories (something to do with interchangeables would be nice) but Aubergine/Steel? Oh, dear. Though if Olive/Wasabi appeared, I would probably swoon...

    The car probably costs as much as my current house. I think my house is too big, but I definitely couldn't downsize into that car. It looks fun to drive, though!

    I'm a fan of Tina Govan. Less...

    Great idea! I have a TT that I haven't used for travel as I decided it was too large for my needs. I may try using it as a lunch sack instead of destashing. Bonus: my TT matches the Swift that is my...

    I don't think I saw this above - Ziploc slider bags have a gussetted bottom that is very helpful for accomodating rigid 3D items like bottles. The Hefty press-to-close bags currently in my pantry do...

    The Wirecutter review was what piqued my interest, especially since these are less expensive than either Davek or Blunt.

    I never thought I'd consider a posh umbrella either, but the cheap end of...

    Does anyone have experience with EuroSCHIRM umbrellas? Campmor carries them and they get good reviews. It's been raining a lot where I am lately and I've been...

    I also think large cubes are too large. I have one large EC compression cube that I use for occasional-access things, like a rain jacket. It fits flat and out of the way in the bottom of my A45....

    Or an aircraft with non-functioning USB ports. I got one of those on my last flight. I wish I'd had an Anker battery. I did have an old-fashioned book along. Yay for backups!

    I'm about to wrap up with the Tenth Doctor myself. A coworker has informed me that I will like Matt Smith. I'm also looking forward to Amy and Rory.

    I use an Altoids tin with a piece of microfiber cloth cut to fit the bottom. It doesn't go in the shower with me and I make sure the soap isn't dripping before I return it to the tin.

    I don't have a Smart Alec yet, but I also use similar straps on other bags for a jacket - it's especially nice if the jacket is damp and you don't want it inside your bag.

    I would have enjoyed Munich more if my husband hadn't transformed into a three year-old while we were there. To be fair, he was in a bit of pain due to a foot problem that he didn't address before...

    I'm so glad this release isn't planned for Black Friday since that's usually a family and travel day for me. I bought a Zest LSB and regretted not buying a small one in one of the other colors....

    I have the 15" Specter but haven't used it yet. My husband uses a regular one and I borrowed it enough (or wheedled something of mine into it often enough) that I finally sprang for my own when I saw...

    Your photos make it look like I need to plan my next trip through Frankfurt on a weekday morning in the fall! I'm glad you enjoyed your layover (and the cappucino).

    I'll second the "if it wrinkles" and add "if it has a collar." It's wonderful to know that your collar points, even on polos, won't get bent/creased if you stack the shirts carefully in the folder. I...
