I can be frugal to a fault. I have no problem spending or traveling a few extra hours to get a good deal, or save money. But over the years, I’ve learned that it’s okay to pay a premium in exchange for peace of mind.
Let me say that again for the people in the back:
It’s okay to pay a premium in exchange for peace of mind.
Definitely DO NOT go overboard if you don’t have a premium amount in your bank account. haha But if paying an extra $50 to fly into BUR rather than LAX, spending $15 on an uber late at night rather than public transport, or spending $ on a unique experience you really want to do while traveling will contribute your overall happiness, decrease your stress and significantly save time, I say go for it.
