Federal regulations only allow two carry-on bags. One bag can be either a small roller bag or a duffle bag. The other item can be a purse, brief case, or computer bag that can also have wheels. My personal favorite is a computer bag with wheels that functions as both a brief case and a purse, which doubles as the perfect on-site tote at UOR!

Security practices are different at every airport, but the rules on liquids are universal. The rules are tight on liquids or pastes that are in your carry-on luggage. Any liquids or pastes must be in containers that are 3 oz. or less.

This includes medicines, toiletries, makeup, and perfumes. For example, 1.5 oz. travel size toothpaste will work but the same amount of toothpaste in an 8-oz. tube will be confiscated, a lesson I learned right after the new restrictions were posted last fall. All of these items must fit into a clear plastic, one quart zip-lock bag and this bag must be placed in clear view in the security bin.

So if you need to use eye drops, contact solution, toothpaste, or any other liquids during a flight, plan in advance.

Footgear and computers are also TSA targets. Nearly all airports require that you remove your shoes before going through security. Plan on wearing socks if the thought of trodding barefoot through security gives you the willies. Laptop computers must be taken out of their cases and sent through the scanner separately from all other carry-on items.
