While packing for a multi-country trip, a friend of mine mentioned she was going to be smart about traveling this time, by decanting her liquid toiletries into contact lens cases to save both space and luggage weight. At face value, not a bad idea—if she wasn’t also basing her strategy on an absolute swindle. Having similarly suffered at the hands of bloggers who will turn literally anything into a believable hack to make a dollar, I felt it my responsibility to set her straight. Those bitches lie, and these bitches leak.
