How Can You Beat the New Airline Fees: Space Bags

As you may have already heard, American Airlines announced last week that it will begin charging $15 to check your first bag. This is as a result of the ever-increasing cost of gas.

So you have a couple of different options when you fly.
  1. You can choose not to fly American (most business analysts do say that other airlines won't be far behind in announcing similar fees)

    -or-
  2. You can use a Space Bag to fit more in your carry-on bag

I think I am going to try both. The Space Bag basically vacuums out all of the air in your clothes making them a much thinner form of themselves, sort of like the FoodSaver does to food. And I am all for anything that will allow me more space for more clothes and more shoes!
