What’s in my liquids bag?

As I packed for my most recent trip, the Home Warrior walked by my suitcase and picked up my liquids bag. “What’s this?” heasked. I can see the confusion! Right now, I’ve pared my liquids bag so far down that it looks like a collection of a few random items in a Ziploc bag. When I explained it was all the liquids I needed for my three day trip, he was very impressed. Of course I love impressing my husband, but we have to remember this is the guy that took a fan to Puerto Rico. Light packer he is not. That being said, it surprises even me that I truly need so little.

The contents:

  • Shampoo and conditioner (original travel-sized containers)
  • Body wash (regular body wash decanted into a travel-sized container)
  • Lotion (original travel-sized container)
  • Face wash (inside contact lens case)
  • Eye cream (inside contact lens case)
  • Moisturizer (inside contact lens case)
  • Makeup primer (inside contact lens case)

I keep my razor, stick deodorant, toothpaste, and contact solution in my non-liquids bag. Makeup does not need to be in the liquids bag (per the TSA blog).

And that’s it! I know it looks small, but I don’t need anything else on a daily basis.

Readers, what’s in your liquids bag these days?

  1. Toothpaste in non-liquid bag? I have had a brand new full-sized toothpaste confiscated as an over-size liquid. TSA can be so inconsistent!
