The average period on tampons and pads costs $240 a year. Period costs about $60 a year (five pairs) and can last anywhere from 2 years to 10 years depending on how you take care of them. So let’s say they lasted for 5 years, you’d spend only $60 as opposed to $1200 on pads and tampons during the same amount of time. Wow.
