shocking

Okay- who says you never use math skills after high school?
I crack myself up, because I just spent the last few minutes thinking and calculating how much money I have spent on feminine products in my lifetime. (I know....don't I have better things to do?)
Anyway, I have been needing a new box of tampons (or pads, in the early years) every month (at least) for 25 years. (Just realizing that bit of info was shocking in itself!) And yes, I realize three of those years I went 9 months without having to do that, due to pregnancy--but I figure that I made up for that by having to buy both tampons and pads each month in the last few years. (Is this too much information?)
So, I think conservatively, I have spent $6 a month for 25 years on this stuff. $6 x 12months = $72 a year.
$72 x 25 years = $1800 WOW. That is alot of money to flush down the toilet! :0)

Maybe this whole entry is just too weird. I apologize.

Again, I could have written this post as well. Thanks for covering it all for me! (No pun intended!)

And just think...I did it for 50 years...50 x $72= $3600!! So I guess you're only half way there.

Too funny!
