I really don't want to take it all with me.

What is the most secure and cost effective way to start moving a small number of things to the US from France?

Last year, I moved to France for a job. Hooray. I'm not renewing my contract and moving back to New York. Yay!
I brought more clothes that I should have, and I have some books and things I would like to send back before I move home. I will be traveling a bit before returning to the States and don't particularly relish the idea of lugging my crap around with me.
While I will be doing some local pruning of the clothes, I know there will still be stuff to send back. What is the best way to send it back from France?
All the other posts on Ask that I saw dealt with moving from the US, not to. They also typically dealt with furniture and larger amounts than I am dealing with.
Is my best bet to load up a few boxes of clothes at La Poste and ship them back? Or is there another, cheaper yet just as safe alternative?
