Giveaway: Another TSA-friendly travel bag.

Want to travel carry-on? I’ve got what you need.

The TSA-friendly travel bag is a quart-sized Ziploc freezer bag (sturdier than the regular kind) that contains:

  • A 1.7-ounce bottle of Pantene shampoo
  • A 0.5-ounce Secret deodorant
  • A 0.75-ounce tube of Colgate
  • A Colgate toothbrush
  • A teeny li’l container of G-U-M dental floss
  • A 3-ounce tube of Veripur hand sanitizer/moisturizer
  • A sample of Yes to Blueberries eye-firming treatment (in case you stay too long at the fair and look a little peaked the next morning)

Ever price these things? It’s ridiculous how much a miniature deodorant or toothpaste costs. But who wants to check a suitcase?

To enter, do one or more of the following:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 9 p.m. PDT on Monday, May 30.

    Just read the bear story – you had me on the edge of my chair. I can just imagine looking over your shoulder to see them following you. That whole not knowing and not being able to control what happens next feeling you get with wild animals is terrifying. Glad all ended well and fun that you got to see bears!

    Very useful prize!

  33. Does leaving a comment count as leaving a comment? Hehe. Anyways I am subscribed to your RSS. I never check luggages.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch….

    ‘My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings: Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!’ Nothing beside remains.

  35. leave out the toothbrush and floss–they can go in regular carry-on as they are not liquids. Stick in some cologne if you use it. Those travel sizes are over priced. A good gift for a grandchild to give “Gramma”.

    • Donna Freedman

      @Gail: True about the toothbrush and floss, but I want this to be a grab-and-go bag.

  36. Hey, I travel – we could use this!
