Luckily, X was being totally reasonable about me just taking off in the middle of a random Tuesday and agreed to pack up my stuff and send my clothes, makeup, etc. to me and then give some of my bulkier items to a friend of mine for them to send to me once I've settled down.
I did some research and it turned out Greyhound had the best shipping prices. I don't think I would trust anything fragile or super expensive to them, but clothes - why not?
X sent them last Tuesday and was told at most it would take 5 days to get to me. Well, this morning when I still hadn't gotten a call to come pick it up (you have to pick up at the Greyhound station) I decided to call them. After almost an hour on hold listening to music from the Nutcracker (seriously Greyhound - please update your on-hold-music to be more season appropriate!) turns out my stuff was already in! There was a note that the phone number given wasn't working, yet it was the right phone number. Needless to say, I wasn't exactly happy with Greyhound, but you still can't beat $200 to ship 4 huge/heavy boxes from Pittsburgh to Charlotte, NC.
But, I'm seriously happy to say I'm no longer a hobo! Now I just have to figure out how the hell we're going to fit all this extra crap in the truck and/or car for the cross country trip!
