Okay this is more a tip for long holidays, but we realised how cheap postage was both in France and the U.S. and decided to send home gifts or bits and bobs we'd accumulated.
Yes it may've cost around $50 each time but if you realise how much you must pay for overweight baggage on international flights - this is small change (on Lufthansa each kilo over will cost you 40 euro - that's around $70!)
Sending things home also lessens the fear of losing things along the way, if you have lots of hotel stops.
Have you done this before? What's the cheapest country regarding postage?
