Hello, my name is Deb, and I am moving to Mexico, so that means I have a lot of clothes to take. I am studying abroad for 5 to 7 years, and I was wondering , if you can give me some advice.
What is the best luggage that I can purchase to take my closet of clothes, shoes, and important things I will not find in Mexico. Most suitcases I find are too small, and I know I will have to pay oversize, or excess baggage, but it’s better than having to repurchase things, if I am trying not to spend. Thanks for your help.

I would suggest that you find a large piece of luggage such as Tumi’s 40-inch roller. A good way to find this type of luggage is at an outlook store or a wholesale luggage store. You might not get matching pieces, but I suspect you’re more concerned with functionality at this point.
You can also consider shipping some of your items through FedEx or DHL. I think that DHL might be cheaper. With respect to the overweight charges, try using the skycaps outside, if you tip them a few bucks they’re usually lenient about the size and weight issue.
Have a wonderful trip.
