Given the financial crisis, I've been hearing about a lot of "recession plans" lately (you know, the pedi recession plan--downgrading to a pedi every other mani). Well here is another great place to cut corners: tampons.
I had previously blogged about how wasteful tampons are, and advocated for the reusable menstrual cup. Sustainability aside, the cup is much more cost-efficient. Consider a one-time payment of approximately $30 for the rest of your life, as compared to approximately $20 per month. It just makes financial sense. Period.
