Packing in 4-D
I shipped three boxes of my clothes to Anchorage beacause I wanted to be prepared for a three-month stay, and it cost around $100 via USPS. After i arrived, I won some shirt group lots on eBay for almost the same cost -- so next time I will just buy the clothes on eBay and save some money.
I call it 4-D packing because of the time factor. Or maybe because of cyberspace.
I'm also finding it much easier to buy appliances and replacement parts online than to settle for the limited selection in the big box stores. Amazon and eBay rule.
I won these 12 used XXL Hawaiian shirts on eBay for $37.
