The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) limits carry on liquids to their 3-1-1 rule-3 ounce bottles in 1, 1-quart zip-top bag, but there are many other uses for those handy bags when you travel.
I always take several zip top bags with me when I travel– both the quart, gallon and 2-gallon sizes.
- I keep a quart bag in my brief case or carry on bag to hold all the stuff from my pockets when I go through security. Just drop all that loose stuff-pens, wallet, watch, phone, glasses, etc-in the bag, zip it shut, and put it back in the carry on bag or in the tray for the x-ray machine.
