Is it cheaper to fly internationally to buy your next suits, luggage, etc?


Two days ago, I went to a high end tailor for the first time in my life, Dung Tailor in Saigon, Vietnam. I got measured and ordered a shirt and a pair of pants. Cost: 1,020,000 VND, or a little more than $50 USD total.

This reminds me of when I was in Chengdu, China five years ago. In Chengdu, I bought a beautiful red leather suitcase for $100 USD, and got shirts and shoes for about $5 each.

So, would it be cheaper for you to fly to another country to buy your items? Here's the calculator I'd use:

1. Figure out what you're going to pay on clothing, shirts, shoes, and hand-crafted gifts in the next year.

2. Assume you can get that at between 40% and 70% off in Vietnam, China, or a relevant part of South America if you live in a Western country.

Grapes and Jello and people of the internet

On Mike Dariano

We found in this on Pinterest and because we had guests coming over I had to make it. My wife hates this but when people come over I have to try something brand new to make. The recipe I found called for a box of mix per pound of grapes but this Jolly Rancher box had easily enough for two pounds and that's the ratio Ill use in the future. To make them.

We chilled our grapes for a few hours after shaking and they turned out very nice.

This is about more than grapes though. This is about finding good people on the internet who share good things. It's too easy to get caught up in hearing about negative news on the television and it's hard to find stories about good things that happen. On the internet though, those people are everywhere. They are on Pinterest and Twitter. You have some of them on Facebook. Find them and you'll be rewarded with more than jello recipes.

Here's three to start with: John Saddington, Meagan at the Happiest Home, Mike at Adventures of personal development.
