Saving Money on Feminine NeedsHate paying every month for feminine needs? Have you ever though of making or buying reusable products?

No more buying product every month and the reusable pads are pretty and more comfortable too!

I have saved a fortune using cloth over the past 20 years.

Sea Sponge TamponEven at only $2/month - over 20 years, that is $480 you wouldn't have to spend. But I do understand the "ick" factor.

Or you can make your own for free! Lots of ideas for making Reusable Menstrual Pads

Concerned about stains? I never had a problem with mine, but here is some help:

Hydrogen Peroxide removes blood on your mommy pads Thanks to Amanda Collins for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Blood on your clothes or mommy pads - Hydrogen Peroxide. I pour some on my clothes in the sink. Just enough to soak. I go back and refresh the H2O2 on the clothes.

When the blood has run out, I run cold water on them. I have yet to have a stain, and I started using cloth menstrual pads. It is so nice to keep them stain free. The sooner the better. This doesn't work as well once dry.

But it does get it out, it just takes more peroxide. If dry, start by getting it wet with cold water. And proceed the same way.

This tip reduces stains that are biological...

Some people would rather pay full price that deal with coupons - we all have our limits! But I understand - it is definitely not for everyone - just throwing out an idea for those that might find it interesting.

One reader doesn't like using her real name, so she has her dog apply for all the freebies. She uses her last name so the mail will get there. She knows when a spam phone call comes in because they ask for the dog.
