On my recent trip to California, United Airlines broke the wheel of my luggage, thereby rendering it less than mobile. This was annoying, especially because they disclaim responsibility for "exterior features" like wheels (or feet or handles or straps, etc). So they gave me some most-likely-useless travel coupons. Whee, or something.

I was due for new luggage, anyway, so I went online and browsed around. And I've just purchased my first-ever matching luggage set! In red! How exciting! (It's the little things.) I disregarded Adam's advice to get Samsonite, because I'm too cheap, and macthud's advice to get luggage from BJ's because I'm too impatient, and I got 10% off, and free shipping from ebags.

I feel so... so yuppie!
