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!
