Uses for Left Over Pads, Tampons, etc?

I donated the ones that I had unopened to my moms church for their missionary cabinet (they can go "shopping" when they visit my moms church) The others I sent to my moms funny thing is is that she no longer needs them either . But they do get more company then we do . I still have one unopened box of panty liners that will make their way to the mission cabinet

I gave all of mine to my sister. She really appreciated it. I had so many varieties and brands. She hadn't tried many kinds so now has a chance without wasting her money.

I didn't think of giving them to a shelter. We have many places in my town that could have used them.

New use for tampons

My dh and I went to a ZZ Top concert last weekend and before we left he asked me if we had any cotton balls because he knew the concert would be loud. Well, I looked and could not find any, however, just a few days earlier I had received a nice little gift in the mail. A local pharmacy had sent me samples of Kotex products and when I opened the package I just laughed. I decided when I couldn't find any cotton balls to see if I could take a tampon a part and use it. I took it to my dh and he laughed. He said, " I am not wearing that thing in my ear with a string hanging from it." I told him I would open the tampon up and cut the string off. When we got to the concert we NEEDED the cotton so I pulled off some of it and rolled it into a ball for him. He laughed and said, "Don't tell anybody that I put a tampon in my ear!" I just laughed and thought how funny it was to find another use for tampons. It worked to block out some of the sound, but it was a LOUD concert. We went out into the foyer area and watched a local football game and listened from there with the "cotton" in our ears.
Hope this brings laughter to somebody that is just beginning their recovery process. It has been 6 mths since my TVH and life does return to normal, but it does take time.

I'm giving mine to my son. He's a high school wrestler and they cut the strings and use them for bloody noses. Funny but true.

donate them to your local school for the school nurse. I work at our local high school and when our school nurse (also a close friend) heard I was have the big H, she came to me and asked for any and all leftover tampons and pads. I said SURE>>>>> It will be my NEW YEAR gift to her. ha!
