Personal Success Take It to Go It’s a tricky time for air travelers; the 3-1-1 rules mean that you can’t pack full-sized liquid or gel products in your carry-on, but the high percentage of lost luggage makes you skittish about checking bags. What’s a frequent flyer to do? Pack smarter. As stipulated by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), each traveler is allowed to carry liquids and gels in containers no larger than three ounces, all of which must fit into a zip-top, one-quart, clear plastic bag, and each person is limited to one plastic bag (3-1-1). Think of it as an opportunity to be creative, as you figure out how to deftly pack shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, styling products, lip balm, toothpaste, hand cream, a drink for the plane, and anything else you need into one, one-quart bag. Fortunately, a variety of manufacturers have products that comply with the TSA’s regulations, while allowing travelers to bring along everything they need for the journey. By Kinley Levack SILICONE ALLY While there are plenty of small plastic bottles on the market, most of them are difficult to fill or tricky to dispense product from. Enter the Silicone Travel Bottle. These inverted bottles are easy to use with a wide mouth, flip cap, silicone seal to prevent leaks, two-ounce size, and a rotating icon system designed to help you remember what product is inside. $20 for two; POINT OF CONTACT Contact lens wearers have long suffered through juggling lens solution, cases, and other paraphernalia, making it that much harder to go carry-on only. The Contact Companion is looking to change all of that by helping travelers pack everything they need for contact lenses in a small, convenient, and TSA-friendly package. The kit contains two bottles for solution, a lens case, tweezers, and a mirror. $11.99; www.contactcom CONTAIN YOURSELF The TSA may have made packing your own drinks a thing of the past, but if you take an empty bottle, you can simply fill it up beyond security—a convenient and environmentally friendly option. These attractive, insulated containers from Pottery Barn have a clip to attach the bottle to your bag, and hold 25 ounces of hot or cold beverage. $10; PHOTO: DON SALKALN 28 FEBRUARY 2008 SUCCESSFUL MEETINGS
