Budget Saver Tip #10: The Diva Cup

This is a topic specifically for the women, so if you're a man reading this, feel free to skip this post if it makes you uncomfortable. :)

This budgeting tip is about an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to tampons and pads. It's called The Diva Cup and some of you may have heard of it. Others of you I know use it, as I do.

What I love about the Cup:
  • How much money it saves me per year
  • Knowing I'm doing one more thing to help the environment
  • It helps me be more in tune with my body and know exactly what is normal for me each month
  • It's healthier for my body than tampons
  • It takes up so little space (unlike packages of pads and boxes of tampons) both in my bathroom cupboard and in my suitcase when I travel
  • Knowing it's securely in place--and can hold a lot!
If you're ready for something better, or just curious, check out the above links. If nothing else, it will give you something to think about...

I've noticed that the times I've talked about the Diva cup on Face Book or on my blog that people tends to not respond. Are they embarrassed? Grossed out? I'm really not sure. I feel like the Diva cup is a really great thing and that not nearly enough people know about it. But it seems sad to me that so few people are willing to try it out or even talk about it.

Carolyn, I've wondered about that too. But if either is the case, it's too bad. At least there are a few of us out there willing to try new things and then talk about them, to spread the word. Hopefully even if people don't comment we get them thinking...
