I'm looking for the cheapest options for shipping <20kg of personal effects from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Southern California.

I'm wrapping up a year-long study-abroad and would like to put together a package of stuff to ship home. So far I've found TNT Post, but shipping with them is more than €100. I'm a student who would rather not fork over that much cash for this...
My family was able to send me packages for $60-$70 US, and was hoping I could find something closer to that rate.
I'm particularly interested in shipping by boat, if it's an option. I couldn't find a rate card for PostNL, but UPS NL wants €245 for their cheapest service.
Do you know any alternatives?
