Even before the cost of living crisis heightened this year, I still found feminine care products to be really expensive. But this year, I've found myself comparing prices on my essential sanitary products across different stores to get the best deal. 

And that's why, I'm happy to see that Amazon is including feminine care products such as sanitary towels, tampons, period pain relief tablets, and menstrual cups along with its Prime Day fitness deals. Savings as large as 65% off are happening, for example, the SHORDY Reusable Menstrual Cups have $19 knocked off their usual price at Amazon (opens in new tab) right now. 

Feminine products are essential for most women and are something many women will begrudge factoring into their monthly budgets, I know I do. Some people prefer to use menstrual cups because the cups are reusable, they can be a more sustainable option, and are more cost-effective. However, there's still very much a place for tampons and sanitary towels. Forking out on these products combined with period pain relief tablets and feminine body washes can really burn a hole in your pocket. So, I was on a mission to do something about it.

Instead of waiting for shops to reduce the prices of feminine care at unpredictable times, these are the Prime Day deals I'm stocking up on.
