Lucky Magazine really isn’t the first place we turn to learn about fabulous-yet-practical products for backpackers (they once ran a travel spread featuring $900 Marc Jacobs “trekking boots”) but it was in the January issue that we first learned about our newest web obsession: www.Minimus.biz.

The site offers a deep selection of toiletries, pharmacy essentials, personal care items and even condiments in sizes that won’t tick off the uniformed bulldogs at airport security. We love that we can snag trial sizes of our favorite John Frieda shampoo, Wisk laundry detergent and Skintimite shave get–then order some packets of Kraft light mayo and Knotts maple syrup while we’re at it.

Of course, this is all great news for travelers, but the site offers kits for campers, military personal and parents who want to send their kids a care package at school. Since shipping is free on all orders over $20, doing your pre-trip shopping online really becomes a no-brainer.
