    Have you considered sending non essential heavy items i.e books/jeans etc via cargo? This can sometimes work out cheaper than excess baggage. If you box up the stuff you want to take (or even use a suitcase) they will send it out either ahead of you or you may have to wait a few days as it very rarely goes on the flight with you, unless you are extremely organised. Every airport has their own cargo companies so if you are flying from one of the major ones you should have a choice. At least you will know how much you have to pay before you get to the airport.

    Have you enquired about sending your excess baggage as "Unacompanied Baggage"? It is much cheaper than excess baggage which, I believe, costs 1% of the first class fare per kilo. It soon mounts up.
