o Panty liners are often used as a backup for tampons to catch any leakage and prevent embarrassing situations.

8. Keep a small makeup bag (use the free gift-with-purchase from makeup companies or pick up an inexpensive, small bag) in your locker, purse or backpack with liners, pads and/or tampons in case of emergency. Not only will the bag keep everything organized, the contents free of dirt and debris, but you won't risk embarrassment should you spill the contents or have someone standing too close while you are looking in your bag.
