In the past month, I have made a number of short trips that allowed me to get away with a small carry-on bag. My big problem was that I couldn’t bring toothpaste with me. I hated the idea of buying toothpaste at my destination, using a touch of it and then throwing it away. I even felt guilty doing the same with teh travel-sized toothpaste that the hotels gave me. Use a small amount and then it gets thrown away. The packaging is my real issue – I am always at odds with the convenience of our disposable habits.
On the other hand, the hassle of checking my bags just so I could have toothpaste.
My deodorant is a solid, my face soap is a bar, hotels have shampoo and I don’t wear make-up. So it was really just the toothpaste that was making me dizzy.
So I was happy to see this today even though my next three trips are long ones that I will be checking my bag for anyway.
