Best TSA Approved Liquids Bag | Carry On Travel

TSA Approved Liquids

TSA Approved Liquids BagI am planning a trip to Orlando in the coming weeks, and I searched high and low for the best TSA approved liquids bag…that would fit ALL of my stuff!

Listen, I’m not a high maintenance chic, but 1 quart bags are not big enough for all of my liquid stuff…even in travel size!

I’m headed to Florida for a conference in 2 weeks, and I’ve been scouring the net for SOMEONE to give me a great tip about the best TSA approved liquids bag. I kept coming up short with the age old 1 qt ziploc bag tip.

I had tried to fit it all in a normal 1 qt bag…and it wasn’t gonna happen!

Let me back up real quick though…what are the details regarding the TSA approved liquids bag?

The rules for TSA approved liquids is called the 3-1-1 rule.

What does that mean?

-All liquids must be in a 3.4 oz or less container
-All containers must fit in a 1 quart clear bag
-Each flyer is entitled to 1 bag

Now you know the TSA approved liquids rule…let’s get to the GREATEST TIP YOU’LL EVER READ for 3-1-1 carry on baggage!

Two words:

Expandable bottom.

What does that mean?

I came across a treasure when shopping the other day. I happened upon the storage bag aisle, and thought, “I wonder if there’s a stronger/possibly bigger/differently shaped 1 quart clear bag option”.

And there on the shelf sat my greatest find. I’m really convinced the angels sang a chorus of hallelujah when I saw them.

One quart, zip top freezer bags with…an expandable bottom! I had found what I was thinking of!!

The bags still hold 1 qt. But we all know that shape determines how things fit!

The bottom of these bags expanded, so instead of just a flat seam at the bottom…I got access to a whole glorious 1.5 inches of width as well!

Behold—the TSA Approved Liquids Best Tip You’ll Ever Learn! 😀

Check out the video I filmed about what all I could fit into these bags that I could NOT fit into the normal 1 qt bag! You’ll be amazed!

Now I’m ready to roll for my trip to Orlando, and I don’t have to mess with checking my luggage! I’ll just breeze through security and straight on to SUNSHINE 😀
