- DIY/Around the House Materials
- July 27th, 2015
I recently started getting into reusables. I bought a menstrual cup and used it for my last cycle, and I'm very happy with it. However, I'd like to get a few cloth pads and pantiliners to use as well.
My mom has been pretty supportive of my choice to use RUMPs, so that isn't a problem. However, money is.
I'm a teenager that has no job -- meaning very little income.
I really want to get some pads to use, but I only have around $40 MAXIMUM to spend at the moment. I could save up over time, but I still would like to get some cheaper options.
Could someone point me toward a less expensive source of pads or liners, or help me figure out how to make my own? I'm mainly in need of liners, so pads are pretty much optional if need be.
If possible, I'd like to use some at-home materials. I have some fleece, denim, a bit of flannel, and MAYBE cotton fabric, if they would be useful. I also have cotton yarn, if it's possible to knit or crochet them. Is there anything I could use that I might have in my home -- for instance, cotton socks?
