Thanks to all that contributed to my previous luggage thread. Such great insight and suggestions! Now, on a somewhat related update, I have gone in a slightly different direction and purchased a wonderful "personal bag" that just barely fits Frontier Airlines specs (18"x14"x8") for stashing under the seat, thereby avoiding the carry on charge. researching on amazon, I stumbled onto the perfect bag for the job and I am so happy to find it. https://www.amazon.com/Frontier-Airlines-Rolling-Personal-Purple/dp/B011M7TNJI/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1475244481&sr=8-3&keywords=frontier+personal+bag It looks very high quality, sturdy and surprisingly large, just a bit smaller than an "official" carry on. It should work great for a long weekend trip coming up soon. A bonus, in my mind, is that it will soon work for Spirit Airlines also, which will be upsizing their personal bag specs in line with Frontier. I also picked up a nice neck pillow with a zipper allowing me to remove the foam and fill it with some soft clothing items increasing my luggage just a little bit further. I hope this helps fellow cheapskates, er, frugal fans like me.
