Searching for a super cheap international postage / shipping solution to ship from US to UK.

I am based in the UK and I am slickdeals MAD!! I come to this site all the time to look at all the great deals here. Loving IT!

I have a brother in the US based in Houston TX who I can get to buy this stuff for me or I could use his address to ship stuff directly to him. I need a way to post stuff from Houston to London UK on a regular basis. It seems the only options available to my brother is USPS which I personally think is a shambles considering how much they charge for international shipments.

I have done some research but almost always come to websites offering virtual addresses in the US with a forwarding service to the UK. They can charge an arm and a leg on storage and forwarding fees. I dont need that service, I already have an address in Houston I can use. I only need to find a good service other than USPS, Fedex, UPS or DHL which all charge extortionate fees for international deliveries from the US.

The idea is to get a few things shipped at a time when I have enough to warrant a single shipment. For instance, over a few weeks I have bought and accumalated about 5 things that I saw deals for on slickdeals. I would like to box them up into a single shipment, should weight about 9 or 10lbs and get it shipped over.

Hope this all makes sense.

In a nutshell, all I am looking for is a cheap international courier service.

Any advice, hints, tips etc?
