Saturday Steals: FREE Stuff for Your T.O.M. (who doesn’t appreciate free tampons?)

(Does anybody else out there refer to their monthly cycle as “Tom?” [As in, Time Of Month?] I do, regularly. Kyle knows that when Tom’s here, to be cautious.)

Weeks ago I read on an online deals forum that was giving away free stuff. I didn’t even know what it would be, but I signed up to be on the list (because free stuff is free stuff, yo), and promptly forgot about it.

Then yesterday, I went to the Mayberry watering hole to pick up my mail, and what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a package just for me! Score.

I rushed home and tore it open like the animal I am when it comes to swag, and here’s what was inside:

A PERIOD KIT! I love period kits. Nothing makes me happier than free tampons, especially the fancy new kinds with all the bells and whistles that I don’t like to pay for (wow, that was such a weird sentence I just wrote).

Look at all the stuff I got:

Two tampons…

Two pantiliners…

An ultra thin pad WITH WINGS (bonus!)…

Another pad WITH a free bum wipe (deal!)…

A coupon for an entire (50 count!) package of FANCY pantiliners (the ones that can be adjusted to fit any kind of underwear you should find yourself in, though I myself wear only one kind, the granny kind, but REST ASSURED this coupon will be redeemed)…

Another coupon for $4.00 off my FAVOURITE kind of razor (well, back when I used to use razors, anyway…before I turned into a cavewoman). I bet if I wait long enough I can find a Venus Embrace marked down to $4 and then it will be free for me…

Stickers (apparently thinks all its clients are teenyboppers, but I’m not offended; I’ll just give them to my nephew so he can plaster them all over my sister’s nice furniture)…

and last but not least…

…a PAMPHLET. I read pamphlets like the Pope reads the Bible, and this one was no exception.

Did you know that…

•having your period doesn’t have to be a drag?

•tampons are the only form of menstrual protection for swimmers??

•pantiliners keep non-menstrual vaginal discharge from making underwear wet or sticky???
Oh, you did? Me too. But I liked to re-learn it.
Anyway, that’s my steal of the week. All that stuff for free, free, FREE (plus they paid for shipping [I don’t know why, but I always feel so appreciative when I see how much money people pay to send me stuff]).
Thanks,, for all the swag and free shipping! Do you want to be my sponsor? I would be a great candidate—I have my monthlies on a regular basis and I’m not afraid to write about ’em!
Now it’s your turn.

    WOW! I’m the first to comment!! YAY!

  4. Bethany says:

    Oh my gosh I refer to my period as T.O.M. too! I always say my friend Tom has come to visit…even though i don’t really think of it in friendly terms more like a frenemy! That is so awesome you got all that free stuff! Nothing beats free things! Nothing!

    Around our house we call it Aunt Flow. Jeff asks, is your aunt coming to stay? How long this time? As a side note, I too love free things. I don’t know about those kind of free things though.

  6. Shesten says:

    I don’t flower it up.I just say either I’m menstruating, or I’m on my period. Poor Monster.

    I will say though, that you’ll LOVE the adjustable to any kind of underwear pantiliners… I got a free box a little while ago and adore them. They’re great. And FREE is such a great price :o)

    Not to pee on your parade (I mean, we all love free stuff!), but if I may make a thrifty suggestion: Diva Cup. Non-disposable and convenient as anything, I’ve used mine for 8 years (only occasionally supplemented by conventional TOM goods). I’m a diva cup evangelist. :)

  8. Lisa says:

    Great steal! Can’t beat all that free stuff! (Especially for stuff that no one really enjoys to buy anyways)

  9. Geevz says:

    I love period kits too and I’m glad that someone else reads every word about stuff they already know :)

    I hope my Sunday steal was alright. I had a busy Saturday and felt bad that I missed last week because of my conference.

    “and by the third day, I really just wanna dance” I love that commercial so much. It makes me laugh every time.

    anyway, this post has given me an idea for my own Saturday Steals post. So, perhaps this will be the week I jump on the bandwagon!
