I usually take eight - 3 ounce containers of shampoo and one large empty bottle through the checkpoint. Once it's cleared I empty them all into the larger container and now I have my full size bottle of shampoo. I enjoy doing it in front of the screeners to show them how wasteful their efforts are.
