I had my husband pick up some tampons for me(yes he does this occasionally) and he picked up the wrong size. What would you do with the box; I don't want to throw them away but they are too big for me and hurt.

  • I would agree with others and say give them to a women's shelter. They are always in need of things like this. Kudos to your husband for being willing to do that for you. The few times I have asked my husband he didn't mind at all and he got major brownie points for it. (c:

  • They need these a lot at women's shelters, food pantries, wherever there are really poor people, but if you opened the box, I don't know if they'd take them or not. Could you call one and ask?

  • Even though the box is open, the tampons would still be sealed so I think a shelter would take them.

  • Give them to someone else? Do you know a friend who could use them? Other then that I don't know.

  • Keep them under the sink for any guests that happen by and suddenly need one.

    Oh and I suggest looking into menstrual cups, WAY better than tampons.

  • I'd say a women's shelter. Or in your guest bathroom. I use a cup, but I do keep tampons and pads in the guest bathroom just in case company needs them!

  • I didn't even think about the women's shelters THANKS!!!!!! We don't have a guest bathroom we have one bathroom in our house and I don't have company that ever comes over so don't have anyone else that would use them

  • I usually write down what I need but this time didn't write down the size and he just accidentally picked up the wrong size!!

  • my daddy used to do this for us when we were teens..he'd say, ''i'll go..just hand me the boxtop.'' hahaha..and off he'd go!!

  • I like the idea of donating them if you can (I know lots of people who've done that with diapers when they have a lot and their kid outgrows them... I would imagine it'd be the same sort of idea). I'd probably keep it in the cupboard though, like I do those massive pads I never use! :P
