Try apt-move or apt-zip:

$ apt-cache show apt-move
Package: apt-move

Description: Move cache of Debian packages into a mirror hierarchy
 apt-move is used to move a collection of Debian package files into a
 proper archive hierarchy of the form debian/dists/...  It is intended
 as a tool to help manage the apt-get(8) file cache, but could be
 configured to work with any collection of Debian packages.
 Running apt-move periodically will assist in managing the resulting
 partial mirror by optionally removing obsolete packages, and creating
 valid local Packages.gz files.  It can also optionally employ rsync(1)
 to build a partial or complete local mirror of a Debian binary
 distribution (including an ``installed-packages only'' mirror).

$ apt-cache show apt-zip 
Package: apt-zip
Priority: extra

Description: Update a non-networked computer using apt and removable media
 These scripts simplify the process of using dselect and apt on a
 non-networked Debian box, using removable media like ZIP floppies.
 One generates a `fetch' script (supporting backends such as wget and
 lftp, in a modular, extensible way) to be run on a host with better
 connectivity, check space constraints of your removable media, and
 then install the package on your Debian box.
 Note on current version: space-checking is not done and spanning
 multiple disks is not yet supported.
