Pack Panic

As if packing for short trips wasn't hard enough before, now we have the liquid regulations to contend with.

Almost all my liquid products are under 3 oz., which is the maximum amount of any single "vanity product" that seems to be allowed carry-on per airline regulations -- almost all of them, that is, except my hair conditioner. I mean, I must use 3 oz. of hair conditioner every day. I've decanted some into a travel tube, but it's definitely more than 3 oz. Does that mean that just because one product is over 3 oz., I have to now check my whole bag? That's crazy.

What if I decant the decanted product -- like, divvy up the hair conditioner into single dose containers?
