I am an optician and have worked with contact lens wearers for many years. In all the practices I have been involved in, we receive many free samples of solutions from manufacturers hoping we will give out their products. Most often, we have so much, we throw away expired solutions as frequently as every 3 months.
Here is my tip: ALWAYS ask your optician, or doctor for free samples, of any/all solutions, tell them you travel and need the small sizes. Most of us have limited space for storing all the samples we receive and are happy to unload.
Also, when using solution to disinfect your contact lenses, remember, you don't have to FILL the contact lens case container with fluid, simply use enough fluid to COVER the contact lens. You can save a lot of solution this way. Hope this helps.
