I feel like the Wish app is one of the best-kept secrets. I also feel like I am obsessed with it and I may need a slight intervention 🙈. Seriously, my obsession with this app is getting out of hand.
I have no idea why I waited so long to purchase TSA PreCheck. I guess I figured it would be a hassle to apply for and complete – because it has the name TSA in it. Boy was I wrong. It was WAY easier than expected and it is worth every penny. If you know a frequent traveler who would benefit from this service, or if you are a traveler who’s considering purchasing it—do it.
