Thrifty mum reveals how you can bag a free box of sanitary products from Morrisons with 'secret' codeword

IF you're buying a fresh pack of tampons and sanitary towels every months, there's no denying that the price of your period can rack up pretty quickly.

In fact, a 2019 study found that the average woman spends an average of £5,000 on menstrual products in her lifetime – which is why shoppers are raving about Morrisons generous new scheme.

Savvy shopper Holly Smith – who is mortgage-free at the age of 35 thanks to her budget hacks – alerted her 489,000 TikTok followers to Morrisons period product boxes yesterday.

Earlier this week, Holly spotted a sign outside a Morrisons store going viral on the If Five Million Facebook page which told customers who couldn't afford menstrual products to "Ask for Sandy".

She explained: "The sign states that if you are struggling to afford sanitary products, [then] go up to the customer services desk and ask for a package Sandy has left you.

"And then one of the customer services team will hand you a package which is full of sanitary products."

Although shoppers assumed this policy was only in place at one store, Morrisons later confirmed that all their shops have 'Ask Sandy' boxes for struggling customers.

Holly added: "So if you or someone you know is struggling to afford period products, let them know about this.

"And well done Morrisons – I hope the other supermarkets follow suit."

The video racked up over 48,000 'likes' in less than 14 hours – and people in the comments urged shoppers who can afford period products to not to abuse the system.

One replied: "Every shop needs to do this, it is 100% needed."

Another added: "As a man, this is amazing – but why didn't they do it sooner??"

"Amazing. I hope no one takes advantage," a third said. "Leave them for those who can't afford it!"

Fabulous has contacted Morrisons for comment.
