I got sick to death of those ridiculously delicate plastic coverings getting shredded by the contents of my purse or makeup bag, and simply didn’t want to buy something that LOOKED like a tampon case. So I began seeking an alternative. I knew I needed a case with a hard shell, something fairly large and long, and something that wouldn’t take up tons of room in my handbag. A standard eyeglass case would be too small, but this big ol’ designer sunglass case – meant for housing fly-eye sunnies – has plenty of room for three tampons. Plus I can grab it from my handbag and walk from my desk to the office restroom without giving myself away. Brilliant!
I credit myself with this idea because I’ve never seen anyone else do it … but then, I haven’t met everybody yet.
