I Am in 3 oz. Bottle Hell


It’s been some time since I have traveled and had to bring all of my personal toiletries with me. I leave for Atlanta in the morning and I have spent more time this evening than I care to admit to, trying to get everything that I want to take with me into a quart size ziplock bag. I have bought those delightful little 3 ounce plastic flip top bottles (the TSA has quite a thing for 3 ounce bottles, I must say!!) and have been squirting shampoo and conditioner and body lotion into each one. But now I’m wondering how easy it will be to get said lotions, etc. out of the bottles!! It seems silly to fill each bottle — I will be gone only 2 nights — then I would return and need to get said lotions, etc. back out of the little bottles and into my regular sized bottles. I don’t have enough room for my moisturizer and at my age, this will not be a pretty sight. And, those delightful little bottles take up a heck of alot of room! We’re talking about a bag that is about 7″ x 8″ and it sounds like alot, but it’s really not. So far, I have put in shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, anti-perspirant, toothpaste, hairspray, lip balm — but there’s no room for my moisturizer!! I wonder what I could leave at home — I suppose that I could chance it and hope that the hotel will supply a decent shampoo and conditioner — ye gods this is ridiculous — ARGHHHH!!!!!

    I agree- I went on a trip recently and the thing that struck me was all the men that you could tell traveled frequently… they just held up those bags of toiletries like pros. I don’t want to know what kind of shave cream a guy uses. I have notices that most hotels are carrying better lotion! I have added you to my blogroll. I love your blog.

    (Big noisy sigh) I have decided to bite the bullet — I’m bringing my moisturizer and will leave my body lotion at home. I’m sure there must be a Bath & Body Works somewhere in Atlanta!! At worst I won’t smell like me until I get back to CT on Sunday. Thanks for adding my blog — I love reading yours too! Sweet Baboo thinks it is funny that I sit here reading it with my coffee in the morning and chuckling. I will be sure to look for those guys @ Logan!
