Ride Sharing: Lyft

Saving Money, Travel
133/365 Yesterday, I laid out all of the details on Uber. Today, I'm going to walk through using Lyft. I started using Lyft in 2017, two years after I signed up for Uber. Looking at my account history, I've ridden with Uber 13 times and Lyft 18 times. Lyft is definitely my favorite of the two! Download the Lyft App…

We were all set to fly to MCO for…

109/365 I've seen a few posts around the Interwebs recently about the controversy surrounding taking kids out of school for travel. I am solidly in the "take them out" camp, even as a former teacher.
