Have I Finally Discovered the Ultimate Carry-On Kit?

While I was packing to head home for the holidays, I got out my flimsy one-quart ziploc baggie and a slew of travel-sized items. Due to inclement weather, a layover, and fear of lost baggage, there was no way I was going to check my baggage. I was determined to go carry-on all the way. At the risk of sounding vain, trying to squeeze shampoo, toothpaste, conditioner, hair gel, hairspray...etc. into that teeny tiny bag is rough.

And as I decided between mouthwash and shaving cream (neither won), I could have kicked myself for not purchasing this 15-Piece Carry-On Bottle Kit I saw at Bed Bath & Beyond a few weeks prior. Packaged up in a reusable, TSA approved zip-top bag with the smallest of bottles and jars inside, I could have actually had room for fresher breath and smoother legs. Plus, I think there would even be a little extra room for other goodies like lip gloss and mascara.

Oh, and the kit comes with 36 pre-labeled stickers so you don't accidentally put conditioner on your face instead of your hair. Never done that. Nope. Never. My only complaint is that the bottles are all made of hard plastic, making me wonder how easily the products would dispense. How about you? Have you discovered a can't-live-without kit, or are you still on the pursuit?

I use something similar when I stay at hotels.

I used this. I actually got it from the local dollar store for $4 (not a dollar but whatever) and it was a god send. My boyfriend was amazed I was able to fit SO much in one bag. The included bag--FYI--holds a little more than the basic ziplock ;)

I have this exact kit from Bed Bath and Beyond and it's GREAT! I don't use the included bag, just a regular ziplock but my bottles have never leaked a drop! The labels are great and the many different sizes are the best because 3 oz bottles take up so much room you don't have room for anything else.

hey all, as a buyer for a luggage and travel good store it is my job to select items such as the kit shown above. This kit has a great feature of the labels for each bottle however the bag does not stand up well, you will soon be using your good'ole ziplock bag. The bottles themselves leak easily making this kit a headache. The kits that hold up well for multiple uses and ease of use are the Eagle Creek Kits and the kits from Nalgene. They offer stronger bags but most importantly bottles that don't leak.

I want this! I hate trying to shove everything I can into a little Ziploc bag when the containers are all different shapes and sizes.
