We all know that whenever we’re flying, we have to adhere to the annoying 3-1-1 liquids carry-on rules. I used to think that meant I could only bring small, travel-size toothpaste (only carrying about 0.85 oz in the container) like the below:
Believe it or not, those little travel size toothpaste bottles that contain almost no toothpaste inside are not the largest that you can stow inside your carry-on. Plus, they can cost over $1 per tube, which is a huge rip-off.
Instead, you can find great toothpaste deals like the following I got from Walmart. It only cost 89¢ and it’s 2.5 oz, which is significantly under the 3.4 oz limit set forth by the TSA. 2.5 oz will last you for a few months on the road.
Will this fit inside a quart-sized bag? You bet it does.
Next time you fly, ditch the rip-off travel-size toothpaste and buy an inexpensive tube at a local supermarket.
