When we got ready to head up to Seattle for Christmas we ended up having to take 3 bags to check on the airlines. We have 1 big bag and 2 medium bags. The airlines as you might know charge for extra checked bags. I wish we would have thought about it sooner so we could have just bought another big bag so we could have only checked two. So while we are here we are going to check out some big pieces of luggage and maybe even some Samsonite luggage.
Alaska only charged us $25 for our extra bag, so we are thankful for that, but if we can get through the snow and possibly buy a bigger bag. That way we will not get charged for our flight home.
