TSA Approved Quart Bag

Tomorrow, I board a plane to the other side of the country for a business trip. Being as that I have not been on a plane for something like eight years and I’ve never traveled for business, I’m left a bit reeling. The trip is short, so everything’s coming as a carry-on.

And having a carry-on means analyzing what liquids you need and stuffing the most important ones into a TSA approved quart bag to follow their 3-1-1 rule.

TSA Approved Quart Bag Contents


  • John Freida Frizz Ease Packet Trio (Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Cream)
  • Matrix Exquisite Oil Packet Duo (Shampoo, Conditioner)
  • Travel Sized Big Sexy Hair Root Pump

Why two shampoos and conditioners? I’ve never used either, so I don’t know how much I will want/need to use. Even never having used either, I guarantee you I’ll like them more than the nondescript hotel offering(s).



  • Crest BE Toothpaste. This was a BzzAgent sample. This is an odd one in spearmint-lime, but it reminds me of a Mojito
  • Travel sized Listerine mouthwash
  • Jergens Ultra Healing Daily Hydration body lotion packet

And other, not pictured because I am an airhead:

  • Tide Pen
  • Germ-X
  • Marc Jacobs Dot Rollerball


And here it all is, tidily packed into my TSA Approved Quart Bag with room to spare:
