Packing for travel these days can be daunting. This is especially true if you are flying to your destination. The rules and regulations surrounding which items you can and can’t pack and what size they can be are changing all the time. However, even if you are not flying packing can still be a frustrating endeavor. You have to fit everything you need into your luggage without taking up too much space. Over-packing is a problem many of us struggle with. We almost always pack way more than we need!
One way to save space and get passed those pesky airport regulations if to use Travel Minis. These are smaller versions of the toiletries you usually use at home. They come in much smaller containers that are usually airline standard size. You can find these travel minis at any department store or drugstore but they can also be bought online at various stores or third party shopping websites. In-store, these items can usually be found in the aisle that sells regular size toiletries or they may be in the aisle with other travel items.
Sometimes stores have special promotions where you can buy regular sized items with Travel Minis included in the package at a discount.
These travel minis are excellent for any trip including quick overnights to extended holidays. They are small and can fit in your carry-on as long as you don’t go over the limit. They are light so they won’t add much weight to your luggage. They are convenient too. You won’t have to lug them back home with you because there is just enough in each bottle that you will likely just toss it after a few uses before you even head back home.
Packing as light as possible is the best to go when traveling. It doesn’t matter type of trip it is, having less is better. When packing, make sure to read the most recent guidelines for flying. If you are taking another method of travel, such as a bus or train, it’s a good idea to check for any regulations they may have when it comes to luggage.
With less to carry, you will be able to move around for comfortably and not have to worry about lugging around heavy bags. If you have anything left in your Travel minis when you get back home, just add the leftovers to your bigger bottles or save them for next time you travel.
