    I go to the Origins store and ask them for empty tubes/tubs they use for makeup samples. They are tiny, a great size for things I need small dabs of, like moisturizer.

I've never tried dispensing while they are still stuck on the wall, I usually just pull them off and then stick them back on. I'm only at the same place for 2 nights at the most also so they don't have to stick there too long. They are bulky, but they are so easy to fill and don't leak which I love. I've read several different threads about them over on FlyerTalk and the reviews seem hit or miss. I think you either love them or hate them. I definitely couldn't carry more than 3 at one time in my 3-1-1 bag if I wanted room for more stuff, as they do take up quite a bit. I don't pack a TON of stuff in my 3-1-1 bag either so that kind of helps me out.
    I like mine too! I don't use the 2oz ones, which I think are the only size with the suction cups. I don't see the need for the suction cups when they can just stand on a shelf anyway. I use the 3 oz size for shampoo and conditioner and the 1 oz for other things like hair styling product. They do have bulky caps, I agree, but they perform better than all the other refillable tube products I have tried, which either leaked, or cracked, or were too rigid to get product out, or couldn't easily be refilled.

    I use tiny Sea to Summit bottles for thin liquids like eye makeup remover. These never seem to leak and they are very compact.

    I must keep a lookout for Nalgene. Not sure if I have seen them here.

But mostly, they're really humongous for the amount they carry.
    Mine are new, Lani. I'll try them out and see if I agree with you? I had wondered if the suction cups would actually work. But I was hoping the color-coding would help me keep my shampoo and lotion, etc. straight.

    I find Nalgene bottles to be much handier than GoToob. I bought my first Nalgene small bottles, years ago.

    After the 3-1-1 rule was put in place, I found a store that carried an extensive array of both Nalgene and Go Toob.
    Considering the struggles I wage against an almost empty toothpaste tubes and the ease of use of my previous Nalgenes, I bought more of those.

    Yup, they're the small ones.

    Looks like you're both set with photos! My GoToobs are the 3 oz size so the above picture is more representative for you.

    Cheers.
    You can fit this into a 3D Clear Organizer Cube, but the extension cord is what takes up the room and limits what else you can put into it. On my Synapse, I put power bricks into the 3D Clear Organizer Cube, and carry the cord wrapped separately, perhaps in a separate pouch or Kit. Alternatively, the medium size clear organized pouch can take everything. Here's a not great (iPhone) picture of the power brick and extension cord in the 3D Clear Organizer Cube:

    **I have to do a happy dance for a moment** now that I don't have to carry contact lens solution any more. Had the LASIK surgery last week, and no more contact lenses for me! I just got some Go Toobs, and will see how they fit in my Storm 3D clear organizer thingy. Now that I don't have to carry CL solution (and case, and cleaner), I have so much more real estate in there!

    By the way, has anyone used NikWax on the fabric of their 3D clear thingy to make it more waterproof for sinktop environment?

    I was actually planning to order a cache along with my 3D organizer cube and some organizer pouches, but the cache for my MBA wasn't available at the moment. Instead of doing a back order, I just ordered the organizer cube with the pouches just because I'm so excited to get them. :P

    That's great, I would like to see that. Thank you!
