How Much of a Ripoff Is Travel Size Shampoo?


Do you buy travel sized shampoo bottles? Of course you do. We’ve all been there. Packing for a trip and realizing you have no small containers. Or arriving at your destination and realizing – crap – you forgot to pack shampoo! Or even worse, your airline tossed your luggage out of the plane! (At least, that’s the way it seems when they lose your bag.)

Travel size shampoo has it’s place. But I don’t want us to get lazy and buy them for the convenience.
