As a Mom, I try to be prepared as much as possible. Whether it’s a first aid kit, baby wipes in the car for those yucky hands or spills or even carrying feminine products in my purse, being prepared is just something you have to do when you have kids. But sometimes, being prepared can also lead to embarrassing situations. I tend to forget to zip up certain parts of my purse and on two different occasions, I’ve had tampons flying out of my purse as I tried to pay for something in a store. I know that carrying tampons and pads is just part of being a woman but no one needs to see them being flung across the counter at a cashier!
There’s a couple lessons to be learned from my mishaps…one, zip up the compartments of your purse with personal items in them. Two, start carrying feminine products that are pretty enough so that if you do happen to drop them or have that zipper open, no one will know what they are! I started carrying U by Kotex for a variety of reasons. Kotex is a brand I know and trust & the U by Kotex has unique packaging that makes it less obvious that I’m carrying pads and tampons around in my purse.
I’m not really a girly girl when it comes to accessories and purses. I carry a purse because it’s a need but I try to only take the bare necessities. In my purse you’ll find my wallet, my makeup bag, my sunglasses case, my keys & my cell phone. That’s just about it! In my makeup bag, I tend to carry a thing of powder (since my face is shiny at the worst times), a small hand lotion, my lip balm, lipstick & mascara, plus some U by Kotex tampons & pads. What’s great about my little makeup bag is if I don’t want to lug my entire purse to the bathroom with me, I can just grab my makeup bag with my essential and go! Plus, if there’s ever a little surprise moment for either myself or a female friend or family member, I know I am prepared with U by Kotex!
The other great thing is that right now, you can head over to Walmart and pick up U by Kotex Sleek tampons or Cleanwear pads (in select Walmart stores, while supplies last) & you’ll receive 3 bonus Goody hair elastics! They are attached to the box of tampons or pads so it’s super easy to just pick up a box or two and not only know you’re well prepared but have a new fun accessory (my daughter, who is 11, loves them!). Not only that but you’re getting U by Kotex products at “Walmart’s Every Day Low Price”. Sounds like a WIN to me!
I also thought it was time to start putting away some U by Kotex products for my daughter. She’s 11 and although I still think of her as a little girl most days, she’s getting to that age where she’s going to be starting her period and needs to be prepared. I took a small basket that we weren’t using anymore & spray painted it in one of her favorite colors. After the paint dried, I added U by Kotex Sleek tampons and Cleanwear pads to it and placed it in her bathroom. Now she has her own products for when the day comes and she can feel good knowing that when she needs to put a couple in her purse, no one is going to know what exactly she has in her purse. Plus, I’ll teach her to zip up that purse!
