1 | U-Haul Offers Free 30 Day HoldingFor students who don't have anywhere to store their stuff due to the coronavirus, U-Haul is offering a free 30-day deal. I would suggest trying to go 50/50 with a roommate or friend so that you aren't footing the bill yourself.
2 | Ask Close Professors and/or Advisors Whether They Can Help YouMy advisor actually housed my minifridge in her office and helped me transport the place I was keeping them at and another professor brought his truck to help transport the bulk of my things. Had I not emailed these professors about the issues I was facing I would've never gotten their help. In the end, you do not have if you do not ask and it doesn't hurt to at least ask.
United Airlines Discounted fares to get a slightly cheaper flight on short notice. I noticed it was $6 cheaper for me to fly on Tuesday or Wednesday than Monday or Sunday so I flew on the cheaper day.
Tip: Make sure to check and see whether you are getting the best price for the flight by checking different days on an incognito window.
