Well its about time! “Travelers may now carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3 ounces or less) that fit comfortably in ONE, QUART-SIZE, clear plastic, zip-top bag.” via tsa.gov. So now the question is… where can I get travel-sized toiletries? I found a couple sites that could help if you are really lazy…. Minimus.biz specializes in travel-sized products, and dentist.net sells travel-sized toothpaste and other dental supplies.
But instead of buying online, I decided to see what local stores had in stock for travel-sized items. My first stop was to Rite Aid and surprisingly, they had alot of things. Travel-sized shampoo, toothpaste, hand sanitizers, etc. The one thing I couldnt find there was empty 3oz bottles. I was going to visit Target as well, but since Rite Aid had most of what I needed, I was happy enough.
I’m very happy that I can carry on all my luggage again and not go through the horrible check in luggage process. Because I am so busy with work and other projects, the time saved is priceless.
