Saving by shipping your luggage
Bankrate: Do you think it was a money saver or was it more for convenience?
Lynn Bulmahn: It was matter of I don't want my luggage to get lost. I went from Waco to Houston and changed plans. And anyway I was changing plans two to three times, and I thought no way, my bags will catch up to me a week later, and I won't have anything to go swimming in or hiking in or all these neat things in. Anyway, it worked out real well.
Bankrate: Have you used this idea for other trips?
Lynn Bulmahn: When I was living in Florida and went to visit my cousin, I shipped it there for my two-week visit. And that worked out pretty good. But you have to plan it in advance; you just can't do it at the last minute.
