A Few Benefits of Using Travel-Size Containers

You can find brand name products available in a variety of sizes, including travel-size containers. There are benefits to using the smaller versions of different brands, over purchasing full-sized containers. First, you are able to try out new products to see whether you like them with a small out-of-pocket expense. For instance, if your favorite toothpaste manufacturer comes out with a new flavor or formula, you could try the product to see if you like it, without wasting money on a full size.

 

Another benefit is being able to travel with your favorite brands any time you go on vacation, make a business trip, or visit friends and family out of town. Rather than packing full-size containers into your luggage, taking up a lot of room, and increasing their weight, you are left with plenty of room for clothing and other items. In addition, you can avoid paying excess weight fees for checked bags, or have the option of not having to worry about checking your bags whenever you fly.

 

Travel-size containers are FAA- and TSA-approved because they meet the current requirements of being 3 ounces or less. However, just remember, there is a limit to the amount of products you are allowed to carry onto a plane. TSA has come out with a handy reminder, using the numbers 3-1-1. What this means is you are allowed to bring along containers of 3 ounces or less that will fit into a 1 quart clear zipping plastic bag and are limited to 1 bag per passenger.
