I've just gone on to the amazon website, two packs of heavy pads and one pack of thin pads + a cup is about £90
Wow....that's a lot of money. I've been "lucky" enough to avoid needing lady things as I'm overweight so periods stopped. However I've started to lose weight and I'm dreading the day I need to buy tampons. There's a box under my bed unopened since my son was born. 5 years ago...
I don't know your sewing skills but they are some reasonable diy options for reusable pads. I find the ones that come apart into several layers or unfold are easier to keep clean.
I bought my cup on Amazon, but I think it wasn't Diva brand, I am not sure of the brand anymore, but it cost less than Diva. Check out other options.
I've spent around $5 on menstruation products in the past 3 years.
I've not gotten completely comfortable with the cup, so I do like to keep a few traditional products around for back up. I was frustrated at first, because the cup was supposed to be the end of all products, but even though I don't use it exclusively it has drastically cut down my use of product, reduced my spending and reduced my contribution to land fills.
