This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and U by Kotex but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #UbKKmart. My mom has 6 kids; 3 boys and 3 girls and she always said raising boys was much easier than girls. I have 2 girls and one boy and I am starting to see just what she meant! It is no secret females are the more complicated and emotional of the sexes, so that makes raising them a bit more tricky. One of the things mom would laugh about was how much stuff woman carry with them whenever they leave the house. When my kids were smaller, I carried a big tote packed with all the essentials you need when you have babies. Now that the kids are 12 and 15, I still carry a large tote and need almost as much stuff now as I did then! Maybe it is because we women are so prepared for everything no matter the circumstances. I think the recipe for a successful woman is one who is ready for anything. Is that you?

Recipe For Success A Well Prepared Woman

I carry a lot of stuff in my purse and I honestly could not so without any of it. If I were to tell the complete truth, I could probably carry a handful of other items and still feel slightly unprepared! I always have my phone, a tablet, chap stick, hand sanitizer, pain reliever, deodorant, a nail file, a pen and paper, a flashlight, and a snack and water if I am out for more than an hour or two. If there is one thing I cannot leave the house without, it is my Kotex products. Although I am regular as they come, I still want to have my little peace of mind tucked away in my bag. I was raised on the Kotex products and my daughters have carried on that tradition. I guess you can call me a Kotex mom!


For Shop Your Way members, you can take advantage of $3 off your Kotex purchases at Kmart. I was excited to try the new U By Kotex 3D Capture Core pads for everyday as well as the pads for overnight for Caitlin and I. These pads are going to change the way I do laundry! No more spraying stain remover when you have those heavier days which can lead to leakage. These newly designed innovative pads from U By Kotex are made to lock away wetness and stop those leaks. These pads are ultra thin but they sure do grab that wetness! If you have not already signed up for Shop Your Way, it is free and takes just a few minutes. Not only did I save $3 instantly on my two U By Kotex products, but I had accumulated $13 in points and was able to add a few other items we needed at no cost!


I love knowing I have passed down to my girls how important being protected is when it comes to your period. I told them I have been stuck without a pad and had an accident and how embarrassing it was. All 3 of us carry at least 3 pads with us and with the cute and discreet packaging, they do not scream “Hey! I am a feminine protection product!” Caitlin calls her Kotex stash her “peace of mind” and I guess she got that from me! The other peace of mind I get is when I save money for my family. With Shop Your Way, I get great prices from stores like Kmart and Sears, but their rewards program allows me to accumulate points to be turned into big savings at the register.
