Sent Her Way, a California-based online business, ships feminine hygiene products around the country to women who are tired of running to the store every month for tampons, pads, and liners. “Sent Her Way eliminates the dreaded, late night, last minute trip to the store,” its website says.

Besides convenience, Sent Her Way provides the shopper unprecedented customization, by using drop down menus to select the exact type and quantity to include in a 20 or 40 count box. If a user knows how many heavy days or light days are in her typical cycle, she can have the perfect mix delivered to her door every month for one low price.
