It is actually cheaper to check a second bag but who wants another bag? I can even buy the box and put it in my checked luggage. I've done this in the UK, Austria, France and Germany. If you can find the equivalent of a mail box etc then your set. You do have to list out all the items in cost so be prepared.

Hi sassy, you can send parcels through POSTNL/TNT Parcel service. We have no post offices as such, but many supermarkets, convenience stores etc, have POSTNL counters. They also sell standard size mail boxes. Sensing items abroad is fairly straightforward and not that expensive. Regular packages take about 10 days standard. Expedited shipping is more expensive of course. You also have the option of insuring your package.

On google maps, search for "postagentschap"

Not doubting you menachem but NL has no regular post offices now but only agents doing what post offices used to do?

Thanks. If I'm ever in the Netherlands and choose to ship my things home, I will look for them.

No we don't have post offices any more. We have to go to a supermarket or a bookstore or a DIY store to post parcels nowadays.
Stamps you can order online or if you have an app you can just use a code it generates.
The number of postboxes has greatly reduced too.
No one uses snail mail anymore, except at Christmas.
Even official mail comes to a secure online mailbox.
