Help!!!

I am in desparate need of help.. I am leaving this country. And as I pack, I realize that I have accumulated more stuff than I could've possibly imagined! I am making my bro bring one of my suitcases and even then, I am left with at least 3 suitcasefuls of luggage... Thats coz I am lugging humungous books and I cannot leave them behind. And I came with 3 in place of 2 s most people did.. And though I threw away as many clothes as I possibly could, I am still left with sooo many things. Crap! One excess baggage costs $110. There has got to be a better way to this... Is there some form of international freight shipping that I am missing out on? I don't know. But if someone does, please please leave me a comment. On the other hand, if one of you friends of mine is coming to India soon and has space for some stuff, lemme know as well... I will happily give you something to carry. I appreciate any form of assistance. :) Thank you.

If u got things which u dont need immidietly,u can ship it via "Ship" mail.It takes abt a month to arrive back in india.also, u can send good amount of stuff.contact USPS for more details.

Shaan - Thank you for the suggestions and your comments on my blog. Unfortunately when I called USPS, the price they quoted exceeded $110 for the excess bag. Guess thats the easiest/cheapest way to go. Thanks anyways. And anyone who knows anything cheaper, lemme know.

From Aus there are private shipping cargo services that cost 30% of what excess baggage costs. Am sure u will have such services from the US as well.

U shd be yellopaging it of google-localing it.

Pramod - Thanks for the Bday wishes. And there used to be a cargo service from the US before 9/11. Now they are that much more cautious and have taken everything off.

Vigs - Will somathify you with a couple of humongous books. Thanks for helping out :)
