I arrived early to the airport for my flight to California today. When checking into my full flight, I was able to switch seats and select the exit row. I’ll have a few more inches of leg room than I would have had, had I not been able to switch. There is WiFi here at Newark Liberty International Airport, but in order to access it, I’ll have to pay $7.95 per day or $9.95 per month. I chose the per day option; I should have chosen per month and canceled after one month. Anyway, despite my quick unfrugal decision, now I’m able to catch up with my growing email inbox and write a few posts for Consumerism Commentary, including this one.
