What is the cheapest way to move belongings from Moscow to the USA? We have no furniture to move, just several boxes. Is it cheaper to mail it through the postal service, take it on a flight, or is there another option like putting it in a pod?

Several large boxes were mailed Russian Post from MOW to NYC. Two arrived so far and I'm awaiting the third.

On the way back I simply checked several large extra pieces of luggage. It was worth the few hundred dollars, but check with your airline for rates as they vary with the number of connections.
