To Buy or Not To Buy

That is the question. (Ugh. I can't believe I just faux quoted Shakespeare.)

I have two flights that I'm going to have to buy this year. If I buy them right now, I'll put them on my card and have them done. I'll also have the price match thing from Orbitz so if someone books one cheaper in the meantime I'd get money back.

The downsides of this are pretty bad, though. I tend to lose things like confirmation (although I think that would happen less with the organizational methods of gmail), and it'll jack up the balance on my credit cards again, lessening my ability to pay.

I have to buy a ticket to my cousin's wedding in June, which, if I buy it right now will cost $399. I also have to buy a ticket to Sirens (www.sirensconference.org WOO!) in October, and if I book it now it's only $293.

*sigh* Decisions, decisions, decisions. Ugh. Either way, I'm not going to pay off the one card until June/July of next year, and the other until well into 2014. Why did I do that to myself?

I use gmail too, and for things like advance plane tickets, I click the little 'star' thing next to the email. I only use that for things like plane tickets, hotel reservations, and other travel stuff, so later when I go to the 'starred' folder, there's only a few emails there and it's easy to find. It's been really helpful for me, especially when I need to check my email on my phone at the airport to get the confirmation number to check in :).

I like to email myself electronic copies of receipts and confirmations. That keeps important information safe, even if I lose the paper copy. Also, you can always print from your email.
