thanks for the links to these 2 websites, I think it's a great idea and I knew that someone had to be smart enough to do this...it was a natural marketing idea!

They sell almost all of the personal care items on those pages (though not the food, but who takes soy sauce on a plane?) in every chain drugstore I've ever been in. Why go to a website? I must be missing something.

Why go to a website? For the bragging rights, of course, you silly

Well, if a 3 oz. bottle of shampoo is all you've got to brag about, I guess you have to go with it! (smile)

These sites have hundreds of items/brands to choose from.....any pharmacies/stores I have been in have 1 to 2 dozen travel size items at best.

Fair enough. I was just having a bit of fun. I've never found the brand of shampoo or toothpaste to be all that big a deal for a few weeks of traveling. Actually, I like picking up weird brands of things in other countries. I wish I'd bought that tube of "Golliwog" toothpaste I saw once.

999,

Let me guess...are you a man? Only a man might not understand the importance of shampoo.

I am a man, but one who cares about shampoo perhaps more than I should. But I hate using the same kind over and over, and much prefer changing constantly. I don't think I've ever bought the same brand twice, by design. The only kinds I can't stand are really perfumey ones, which are unfortunately the kind you find in hotels for the most part. But finding something else is never difficult; there are SO MANY varieties to choose from. Having never used the same kind twice, I still haven't even come close to exhausting the variety available just within a mile of where I'm sitting.

nope.. if one doesn't have something you want, look on the other. My strategy is to order from whichever one gives me the best price incl. S/H

I've only used them a couple times to 'fill in' items I didn't find in local stores. Also for a bit of recreational shopping for stuff I don't really need
