Step by Step Guide to Getting the Cheapest Flights, 2017


We’re running a Masterclass on October 24th, 2017, find out more details here.

We’ve bought a lot of flights over the years.

And you know me, I’m always in it for the best price.

So we’ve developed an almost unconscious step by step system to booking flights that can ensure that you’re getting the most bang for your buck (or mile) when you’re booking your next trip.

Heather and I go through our Step by Step process to getting the cheapest flights in today’s episode, including checking budget airlines, mistake fares, and nearby airports for cheaper flights.

And if you want to use your miles instead? We do a super quick recap of how to figure out if your flight is going to be worth it!

If you’re intrigued by today’s episode don’t forget to sign up for our Extra Pack of Peanuts Masterclass on Tuesday, October 24th! You can find more details here.

Have you ever used any of these steps to save a ton of money on a flight? Share with us at @ExtraPackofPeanuts!!

Destination Diary – Slovenia


For a country the size of New Jersey, there is a LOT to see!

Heather and I spent 4 days of our babymoon in Slovenia, and it lived up to all of our expectations and then some.

Delicious food, amazing gelato, and gorgeous drives make this country one that really packs a punch.

Join Heather and I as we go through our trip and share the best food, the best places to visit, and of course my new #1 favorite gelato place in the whole world! I definitely wasn’t expecting that when we decided to go to Slovenia!

Destination Diary – Portland (Update!)


Portland is definitely our most visited city in the USA, and it might even be my favorite city!

Since our last Destination Diary, we’ve been back to Portland multiple times, and it’s time for an update!

Sean Ogle rejoins us on the podcast after several years to share his insider perspective on Portland and share some of his favorite spots around the city. Turns out he was holding out on us while we were there! Guess we’ll just have to go back!

We talk about some of the best restaurants in town, including brunch, pizza, food carts, happy hour, and just plain weird. As one of the best cities in the states for coffee, breweries, and desserts we of course touch on these as well. My favorite ice cream shop is there after all, how could we not talk about it!

What are you the most excited about visiting in Portland? Let us know @ExtraPackOfPeanuts!!
