Save Room and Use Travel Size Products for Your Holiday Traveling

Posted by Cheap Travel Sizes on December 05, 2013.

Preparing to travel over the holidays should include stocking up on your favorite brand name of travel size products. These items save space in your luggage and carry-on bags to give you more room to pack clothing, laptops, tablets, and other items. Whether you are flying or driving to your destination, the last thing you want to do is weigh down your suitcase with full-size items and to take up a large amount of space. You may want to leave some extra room in your bags, especially if you are traveling with children, as you know you will end up having to pack any presents they receive before returning home. It would be a waste of money to have to leave your full-size products behind because you ran out of room.

 

You would be surprised by how much full-size bottles of mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner, tubes of toothpaste, deodorant, and other items weigh. To see how much difference there is between travel-size products and their full-size counterparts, put all of your items into a zip lock bag and weigh them on a scale. Full size toiletries and other items average around 10 pounds, whereas the smaller ones only weigh a few pounds or less. As a result, if you check your bags when you fly, you could end up paying additionally for luggage fees on overweight bags. In addition, full-size containers of liquids, aerosols, and gels cannot be carried onto the plane. However, travel sizes are allowed on, as long as you place all of them into a single one-quart, clear, zipping plastic bag.
