I’ve always secretly envied those chic women who don’t check bags. While I’m trudging through the airport, dragging luggage that’s bursting at the seams, these low-maintenance ladies breezily float past me, clutching the cutest carryons.

I always find myself marveling at how they manage to fit all of their beauty essentials in such a small bag. And with the current TSA regulations, where are they finding all of their personal care products in three-ounce-or-less sizes?

Well, I think I’ve found the answer to this conundrum – and hit the motherload at the same time. Grab a pen, ladies, and take copious notes. Minimus.biz is the secret to packing light. They offer several hundred travel-size items in stock. Their inventory list continues to grow, with the help of customers’ input – and their products are out of this world (some have even gone up to the International Space Station)!

Spoiled Pretty Tip: Minimus has a blog where they post about their products, coupon codes, and stories/photos submitted from customers.

    That sounds too familiar! 2 weeks ago, I tried to take a carry on instead of checking my little suitcase. And after I arrived at my destination, I couldnt feel my right shoulder because I had to drag and lift my 9 kg (19 lbs) carry on suitcase. So on the way back I just checked it. Thanks for the link, its great. Sephora.com also has travel size products. What I did was I bought little empty containers for lotions/ lens solution/ perfume and used those.
