“Mini-size” your personal travel accessories

There is no longer need to steal little shampoo and shower-gel bottle from hotels! I have found every budget travelers dream come true store that sells everything in mini-size — personal care items: shampoo, non-rinse shampoo (just what you need for camping!) shower gel, deodorant, toothpaste, moisturizer; travel-size first-aid kits; long-life food products; name it and Minimus has it.

Depending on what you choose, the mini-sizes range from .25oz to 1.7 fl.oz (about 50ml), it’s branded stuff (example — Clairol, Head&Shoulders) and it’s cheap!

1.7fl.oz of Head&Shoulders shampoo = $1.65; 0.85oz regular Crest toothpaste = $0.69 (prices without shipping, of course).

I hate refilling those awful little hotel shampoo bottles, and am always annoyed at how, when I don’t have those bottles, my shampoo and shower-gel together weigh more than most my clothes. This company is awesome! It took me a while to find them, looks like they’ve been around since 2004. However, they are based in LA so overseas shipping for products is either unavailable, or too expensive. Bummer.
