It saves you money

Did you know that our government has decided that tampons are luxury items and as such, we pay high taxes for them? Hmm. Luxury, huh? Let’s just see what happens if we stop using them and bleed all over our towns. I wonder how much of a “luxury” they’d be seen as then. Perhaps the people (undoubtedly men) behind that tax law would realize they are in fact a necessity. Instead of getting all heated about that topic during a time when there’s enough to be upset about, just save money and use a cup. Studies suggest women will spend over $1,500 in their lifetime on tampons. Those are the conservative users. Kind Cup estimates some women spend more like $4,800 on single-use products in their lives. You could have put that in your Roth IRA. A $40 Kind Cup can last a decade if cared for well, which equates to $160 in menstrual management if you bleed for four decades.
