This post will ultimately be used as a resource for women who want to be resourceful with female menstruation supplies, prepared and perhaps more mindful of the environment.

There are some things we can count on like clock-work and one of those is the workings of the female body. Each month, most women of the age have their cycle.
It’s such an important part of life that we prepare for it, and think through it.
First off, I like to have a 3 month supply on hand, there is nothing worse than having your preferred “kind” not be available locally. I personally have my preferred kind set as a “subscribe and save” on Amazon! You save a little extra money by having it set that way.
I want to take a second and talk quality. it’s super important in this factor to watch chemicals, dyes and more because it is the most vulnerable part of your body! No pesticides, no harmful additives and more!
The next level for feminine care is consider going to reusable. I personally prefer washable cloth~ I have some I use regularly and also some I stock up for emergencies! Don’t count just for you, count for those you love who will eventually need! (I have some for daughters etc!). See link ~ but these are super perfect to grab and go and a great price!
I personally have stashes of fabric and printed directions on how to sew saved up in my stock pile.
I do have these put aside, they didn’t work super successfully for me but I know that in an emergency, I won’t be the only person who needs coverage AND I know that if life wasn’t like normal, perhaps I’d be more invested in making this work lol! Cups are very sustainable and portable, I’ve tried the Diva and this one is on the way to my house! Full disclosure, I am in a houseful of boys, I work full time and I homestead full time, there is a learning curve for these products!
You can also start with disposable cups to try the effort but they aren’t quite the same… We tried these Softcup ones ~ with moderate success
Whatever you do around your homestead, it’s worth the effort of a little forethought to make sure you are always prepared.
