I don't know if any of you ladies have thought about this, but we spend a fortune on feminie hygiene products and pain relievers!!! I don't know about you gals, but I think it's ridiculous. I have a couple of really stupid and far-fetched theories about how government bodies should run and how they should handle things, and to be honest with you, feminie hygiene products is on that list!
A long time ago, my mom said to me "I think that buying tampons should be a tax write-off."
I think I was far too young to understand her frustration, however I'm getting pretty fed up with things as they are now!
According to Netgrocer's website, a 36 Count of Tampax costs $10.89. Now I did some rough estimation, and that means that Tampax are $0.30 per piece and could run a woman anywhere from $6 to $9 per month. Add that up and you've spent about $100 annually on cotton wads wrapped in a boba straw! It's so frustrating!
Then, you start to add in all of the pain killers and water pills (I call them anti-bloatation devices) that women purchase, and you're just racking up a tab!
Men aren't obligated to purchase these things.
Women don't have a choice.
I propose that all feminine hygiene products become tax deductible! Who's with me?
