Is it better to pack a big suitcase or send stuff ahead in boxes?
I'm moving to California in about a week and a half, and since I'm moving, not just going on vacation or whatever, I'm bringing the bulk of my belongings with me. I wanted to bring one of those really big suitcases and check it on the airline, but my mom is convinced I should send my stuff ahead in boxes.
Which is better?
(Things like clothes, towels, toiletries <-- like my super expensive shampoo that I don't want to repurchase, things like body wash is no big deal, stuffed animals etc)...
