I can’t foresee any point in my life where I might need a free menopause survival kit, but I’m a fan of survival kits in general, so I’m getting this. When I got my first car in high school, I made my own survival kit and stashed it in the truck. Years later, I rediscovered it and let’s just say that going through it was like Christmas in July. I’d stuffed everything into a bank deposit bag and some of the items I’d included were a (now grotesquely melted) candle, matches that no longer struck, a single band aid, a compass, water purification tablets that looked like they themselves needed to be purified, and a pair of socks with two exploded AA batteries in them. I’m not sure where I thought I might need all of that, but thank God I never had to call upon it!
