Efficiently packed carry-ons that comply with the TSA’s 3-1-1 rule can help travelers avoid checking luggage altogether and save money. The rule specifies a maximum container capacity of 3-ounces for liquids, gels or sprays and that all these containers must fit into one 1-quart bag. You can buy small bottles and than pour liquids such as shampoo, nail polish remover, and toner into individual mini-bottles for travel use.
Another useful tip is to carry personal use items such as soaps, lip-balms and even shampoos, body butters, perfumes and make-up items in solid form for circumventing liquid-carrying restrictions. Hand sanitizers and stain-removing solutions are also available in sheet form, which is suitable for compact packing.
