There Should Be a Monthly Subscription for THAT

It seems like there are monthly subscription services for just about everything these days. From beauty products to food to yoga clothes (that one actually sucked me in). A quick search showed monthly boxes for just about everything you can imagine.

But what I couldn’t find that there really should be a monthly subscription for is for that time of the month. A monthly survival kit.

It should arrive right before PMS kicks in. Maybe in a box with a big pink dot on the outside. That way, I could set the box on the counter as a sort of warning to Hubs and teach my boys that when they see that package, they need to be extra nice to mommy.

It would also serve as a reminder to me, so I wouldn’t worry about my sanity when I sob my way through So You Think You Can Dance(as moving as Amy and Robert’s dance was last week).

Contents of this monthly box should be customizable. There’s the staples- whatever your feminine protection product of choice is and your pain reliever of choice (Pamprin multi-symptom for me).

The snacks: I’d want peanut butter M&M’s and salt and vinegar Pringles.

Then there’s a comfort item: bubble bath or herbal tea or a trashy romance novel or a rom-com DVD.

All the necessities delivered to my doorstep so I don’t have to head out to the store when I’m dying from cramps.

Maybe there’s even a luxury item option: a bottle of wine or fab pair of yoga pants or a cute hoodie that covers that period bloat.

There could even be an email sent out to Hubs before shipping to ask if he’d like to include anything extra. Good way to deflect some of that PMS rage.

I’d definitely sign up for that service!

What is your must-have item for that time of the month?

  2. Salt and Vinegar chips, Law & Order on DVD, fluffy pillows and a babysitter to take care of my children while I watch Pride and Prejudice and get weepy. ;) 

    I would TOTALLY sign up for this kind of thing.

  3. I heard on the radio there was one of these. Maybe they were joking? I’ll see if I can find it.

  4. I want to sign up right now! Pretzel m&m’s and a bottle of red wine for me!

  5. A hot bath, glass of wine and a good trashy romance, historical preferred. And a couple uninterrupted hours. Sounds good for any time of the month, but especially that time.

  8. I heard about this in a magazine it does exist! It’s like nature box or birchbox, but I think its called period box. Which clearly needs a better name. You can have the essentials plus chocolate plus aspirin delivered :-)

  9. Can I have a babysitter appear in mine? I get so cranky, and it’s hard to explain to my son why mommy yells more often one week a month. I’d rather just hand him off to someone else for like three days – when it’s the worst.

    And M&M’s. Gotta have the M&M’s.

  12. What an awesome idea! I’d definitely sign up. Must include chocolate!

  13. I would sign up in a heart beat. Candy, any kind but pretzel M&M’s and Jordan Almonds would be best and salt and vinegar chips do it for me, too. Advil for the migraine I always get and a hot bath. This was a great post.

  14. Now that is such a great idea!!  As seriously who wants to run out during that time.  Last week mine came when we were on our weekend getaway, I was prepared but not prepared for the migraine that came with it which came on so fast and I had nothing to take so it made me sick, so not fun when you aren’t home.

  15. I love this idea! Maybe you should start it? I’d need chocolate and chips. I’m not sure I’d need to warn my husband though – he often warns me “it’s coming – I can tell!”

  16. I always (ALWAYS) get a headache right before and during my period. I hate that- it just makes me feel so groggy and awful during the day, especially. During my “time,.” I also really crave salt- like, eat a tablespoon-of-soy-sauce type cravings.

  21. There is, there IS a monthly subscription for that! Plus, a hilarious video that made my husband say, “What in the H-E-DoubleToothpics (he’s a really nice guy), are you WATCHING over there?!”
