Re: Ideas: what to do with boxes of tampons

It is a great idea to donate them but my local shelter would not accept open boxes. So now I intend giving them to the local High School nurses' office.

Re: Ideas: what to do with boxes of tampons

Pin the tampon on the vaginal canal party game? As 'bullets' in a 'dart gun'? Put velcro on the ends and use one of those 'nerf' dartboards?

Sorry, you asked!

What will you do with your unused tampons?

A month ago I stockpiled tampons when a store had them on clearance. I don't know why but for some reason today I became very concerned that I'd bought all these and would no longer have any use for them.

As my post-surgery project, I think I will make picture frames out of them to give away at Christmas.

Yes, if you can't tell, I had to take an extra pain med and now I'm loopy goofy.

Re: What will you do with your unused tampons?

LOL! I want a Tampon Frame!

If the boxes are unopened, you can donate them to a local woman's shelter or food bank. I've heard some gals donate them to the nurses station at the high school.

I only have a couple left after this doozy of a period so I will either burn them in some kind of celebration or let my boys use them as missiles, LOL!

Re: What will you do with your unused tampons?

I actually brought all of mine in to work and placed them in the ladies bathroom, along with the pads. I am happy to say that OTHERS are using them, not me! It is such a liberating experience to not have them in my life anymore!

Re: What will you do with your unused tampons?

I like the idea of giving any unopened ones to women who can use them
The local Women's Shelter might like to have them.

Yes, homeless shelters would be delighted to have them! That's what I did with all of my "feminine hygiene products."

Re: What will you do with your unused tampons?

My sister already claimed mine! I'm so excited not to need them anymore! Just had my last period a week ago, and my surgery is on the 25th of this month. I should only need pads for that, and no more worrying about it. Think I'm gonna go get all new panties for the occation, lol! No more ruining our VSecret panties anymore girls, whoo hoo!!!!!

I gave them to my sister and told her that I do not envy her!

Re: What will you do with your unused tampons?

This thread made my morning!! I love all of your ideas! I don't have a surgery date yet but in the meantime I can dream about new panties, and giving away my unused pads and tampons (and maybe a small fire and some artwork as well! Maybe I'll buy a few extra for ceremonial purposes!)....I CAN'T WAIT!!! And no more stained clothes, or worry about overflow during presentations and meetings...WOOHOO! Thanks ladies!!
