Woo hoo, it’s the WEEKEND! Here’s a recap of what we wrote on YMMV this week. From great travel deals to what we’ve written to what others wrote that we really liked and wanted to share, it’s all here, in one convenient place!
We’ve all seen it. Groups of people going through their carry on bags, throwing away bottles of water or soda before going through the TSA checkpoint. Even worse are the people who forgot they had a water bottle in their backpack and have to go through extra security once it’s discovered. While you may have thought “What a waste,” no one was doing anything about the problem. Until now.
If a Transportation Security Administration employee has gotten on your last nerve, I wold still suggest you still act as cool as a cucumber, because guess what? The TSA now has a new secret watch list to monitor people who may be targeted as potential threats at airport checkpoints because they’ve become unruly in some way, shape or form.
Happy weekend, y’all! And if you live in the U.S., happy Memorial Day weekend to you! Here’s a recap of what we wrote on YMMV this week. From great travel deals to what we’ve written to what others wrote that we really liked and wanted to share, it’s all here, in one convenient place!
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) seems to be in a state of flux lately when it comes to snacks. As I’ve combed through message boards, I’ve seen person after person say how they had to empty all of the snacks in their carry on bag(s), when they had read the rules on TSA’s website before they flew and really weren’t expecting to have to go through all of that. So what’s going on?
Woo hoo, it’s finally the WEEKEND! Here are the articles we wrote this week, in one convenient place.

Going through the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) checkpoints in the U.S., especially if you don’t have Pre-Check or Global Entry (and really, if you live in the U.S. and don’t have it yet, YOU SHOULD! Click here to learn why), can be a royal pain. That’s especially true if you don’t fly very often and don’t feel quite sure about what you can and cannot bring as carry on. We’ve already written posts about how to bring medication with you when flying, but there are a whole lot of other things that people wonder if they can bring on a plane with them. Here’s how to find out.
