What Should You Do With Those Left Over Tampons

Since I don't need these things....what is the best thing for them? I think we need to find a leaky boat and fill up the holes....what does everyone else think. I remember as a small child sneaking them out of the cabinet, thinking I had some secret object that my Mom never talked about. Little did I know what that "secret object" would mean later in my life and just how many of those darn things I'd have to buy.

Seems like a women's or homeless shelter could always use them and other toiletries.

If you can find someone who scrapbooks, they can be cut in half and used for chalking............we just discussed that at our last get together and had a good laugh. Hazel

I have had to use pads and I know my local drug store will be suprised at how there shelves will be staying stocked after April

Its sooooooooooooo wonderful to pass that aisle in the store and not have to buy them!!!

I had just purchased a 96 count box right before my surgery so I gave them to a friend. She was all excited with her gift!

What should you do with those left over tampons?

I also work with a large group of women. I think I'll bring them to the office and leave them in the ladies restroom. I certainly never want to look at one again!

Shelters are a good idea too! How about your church group?

I just have'nt been able to give mine up yet. LOL. This past weekend I was packing for a weekend get away when I realized I had packed a handfull of tampons with the rest of my toiletries.It took me a minute to realize I will never need these things again. LOL. Old habits die hard I guess. I also work with a large group of women, I will bring them too work Im sure they'll appreciate them.
