th How to Save Money on Last Minute Flights%catagory

If you are a budget-minded traveler, you probably never wait till the last moment to book your flight. And you are right in doing so, as flights reserved less than at least a couple of weeks in advance tend to be very expensive. But savvy fliers know that sometimes those who wait get more. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a last-minute flight, in case unscheduled business matters arise or you just want to relax somewhere nice for a few days. Cheap last-minute travel is real, if you know a few tips and tricks.

The first and the most important tip, if you want to get that cheap last-minute ticket, is to be highly flexible with flight dates. Don’t be afraid of spontaneity, be ready to move your flight dates backward or forward and wait on standby at the airport for an available seat.

As with all cheap air travel, when looking for a last-minute business class deals  that won’t break your budget, avoid peak travel days and periods. So forget about flying on Fridays, Saturdays and during Christmas time.

Search for flights departing to your destination from various airports located in your area, and you might find out that driving an extra half hour or so to fly from a different airport can save you hundreds of dollars.

Don’t fly together with friends and family. It is a lot easier to nab one cheap ticket than to find a whole bunch of empty seats on a cheap last-minute flight. As sad as this tip sounds, it doesn’t mean you have to be alone once you arrive at your destination. Just allow a reasonable window for time of arrivals for the people you want to travel with.

Check websites of airline companies that frequently release last-minute deals on a regular basis and subscribe to arline newsletters. You will get a fair share of spam, but you will also be the first one to find out about last-minute flight specials. And when you do find a last-minute offer you like, don’t hesitate and book it straight away, because cheap air tickets sell like hot cakes.

Tech Savings 101 – DIY iPad Case: Are You Up For the Challenge?

 

Protecting your iPad with a case is a must. As one of the most technologically advanced devices on the market today that allows you to have infinite amounts of knowledge at your fingertips, it deserves strong protection. But instead of just going to the store and buying a case, some crafty folks are considering making their own. While it’s not for everyone, creating a case for you iPad can be simple and allows you to construct the exact cover you want – plus, the financial savings are nothing to scoff at.

Start With Planning

Before you go and wrap your iPad in duct tape, search for a plan or an outline of a design that you want to construct. Think about the colors you would like to use, the materials you like, and how sturdy you want your finished product to be. The Internet is rife with information on do-it-yourself projects, and a quick search can lead to an abundance of designs, from the simple to the elaborate, that will surely fit your needs.

Some people choose to use regular cloth materials to drape their iPad for a chic look, while others use old workbooks or math notebooks to create a stylish flip cover.

Find Time for the Project

While buying an iPad case is as easy as going to the store and picking out the one you like best, making a case is a bit more time consuming. It involves finding the right materials, sitting down for a while, and constructing it entirely from scratch. If you have some free time during the week, pick a time that you can sit down with your plan and make the case you want.

And don’t get discouraged; if the first time doesn’t work, try again until you’ve got the finished product you desire.

Set a Cost Limit

While making a case for your iPad is a project that’s cheaper than buying one, be sure that you set a cost limit and keep it in mind before starting out. Gathering materials and supplies that you’ll use to deck out your new device can be fun, but setting a ceiling before you go shopping can ensure that you don’t blow your budget on cool designs and tools.

It’s also a good idea to compare the cost options before beginning on your new creation. If the tools and materials used to make your own iPad case end up being more expensive than some of the better cases for sale, you might want to consider purchasing one instead. And if it takes more than just a few hours, or even days, to construct the cover, it may be a better idea to look at the store shelves for what’s out there.

Head to the Store

If you have gotten halfway through creating your new iPad case, or you just don’t think that it is the right project for you, go to your local electronics store to see what the options are for store-bought iPad cases. Many cases offer superior protection to ensure that your iPad will receive no damage from external factors while others mostly provide aesthetic appeal and nominal protection. Each case is made for a specific purpose, with some offering gadgets such as flip covers, keyboards, and even built-in speakers.

Choose for Yourself

Protecting your iPad from any damage is a sure way to make it last for a while. If you’re up for the challenge, consider making a case that will fit your device; if not, head to the store and find the right option for you.
