How to minimize bad breath with post nasal drip?

Saline washes. If the bad breath is due to the post-nasal drip, doing saline nasal washes will help. If not improving with this, please see your doctor, as both post-nasal drip and bad breath can each have a variety of causes.
STOP the drip. Go see an md, maybe an ent, or even an allergist. In the meantime, look into neilmed nasal rinsing. Avoid sugary mints/candies, they'll cause lots of cavities.
