Teeny Tiny Toiletries

If you have traveled anywhere in the last seven or eight years (and if you haven't, get a move on!), you are probably aware of the questionably effective/definitely stringent TSA regulations regarding carrying liquids aboard flights. I think I have a pretty good handle on the rules, and still I could beautify myself for the rest of my life with the products that have been confiscated from me (shampoo and conditioner that had been decanted, something that was 3.1 oz...) And even if your husband lets you check bags (must be nice), or you travel by car or train, who wants to lug that Costco-sized body lotion and sunscreen around? Not this blogger.

I'm also one of those people who prides myself on being prepared for every situation with the contents of my handbag. My husband looks at my (huge, heavy) bag in disbelief and says that he half-expects me to pull an umbrella, a coat rack, and a lamp out of it, Mary Poppins- style (umbrella- yes, coat rack and lamp- no).

All this is to say that I am constantly in search of travel and single-serving sizes of my favorite products, and rarely successful in finding them. Until now.

So I'm so psyched to have discovered Minimus.biz which is an entire website of travel-sized products. They have hundreds of brands of cosmetics and "personal care" items, and all your favorite snack foods in desk-drawer-sized portions. Additionally, Drugstore.com has also increased the number of products they carry in mini-size, and free shipping on orders over $25, so check out their selection, too.

Proof positive that good things do come in small packages.

Can you post a list of what you carry in that bag of yours? I want to be boyscout prepared with the contents of my bag too!
