You Can't Move a Mountain of Pads @ 03:22 pm

Current Mood: indescribable indescribable

I think a lifetime of pads may be a little ambitious after all. I found out thatThe average woman throws away over 10,000 sanitary napkins or tampons during her lifetime. I knew it would be staggeringly huge once I really sat down and though about it. So what do I do? One full years worth? 5 years? 10? I should just stick to the K.I.S.S. rule and do 1 year. So if an average woman starts her period at 12 years old and ends at 50 that's 38 years of periods. Round up to 40. So 10 000 divided by 40 is 250. So 250 pads used in one year by one woman. Should I even bother with test subjects and figuring it all out myself or should I just go ahead and start doing it?



I wonder if Cosco ever has a 2 for 1 deal on pads? Or a buy 10 get 1 free card.



As for my underwear quilt do I obtain only white underwear and decorate each pair myself or get as many different looks and colours as possible?



The Keeper site says In a woman's lifetime, she is likely to use 15,000 sanitary pads or tampons.So I obviously have to do a little more research and average out the numbers I find but it's looking like I'll just skip the test subjects and go ahead with a years worth of pad dolls.

I think as many different colours of underwear as you can fine would be cool. Especially if some of the quilt pieces have the brand on them, like Hanes and things like that. That would rock.

Thanks, Lisa ;) I was thinking that as well but something about having to take the time to decorate each piece of underwear appeals to me as well. But I think I'd run out of ideas pretty quickly. I'd want each piece to represent something and that's just a wack load of symbolic undies.
