What is the best way for a student to move her things cross-country? She will be making the drive across, spending time in a few cities along the way.

My friend is planning on moving back home in LA from NYC, having graduated from law school. She wants to do the cross-country drive, but we are trying to figure out the most convenient, cost-effective option for getting her things across without driving a U-Haul cross-country. She will be making several stops along the way to visit cities she hasn't been to.
So far, it looks like renting a car and perhaps using Amtrak Express for shipping her stuff - (clothes, books, small electronics) - will be her best option. PODS seems expensive, and living in the city doesn't really make that a feasible option.
What are our other options? Also appreciate any ideas/ suggestions/ hacks on this move in general! Thank you, Mefites.
