How did this guy know about a mooncup, but I didn't? Icky poo is right.

At the risk of TMI, I use a Diva Cup and it's actually pretty awesome. His description is horrendous though!

I don't coupon either - it is even more mess that I am not cleaning up, and I always end up throwing them away months later. For me, that time is money.

What Eva said: the Diva Cup is awesome, and his description is horrendous. I love mine so, so much. You pay $30 or $40 (haven't priced them recently) and then never pay for menstrual products ever again ever. Way more hygienic, way better for the environment, way more convenient.

I'm with Eva and lesbrarian on the Diva Cup issue. Fabulous invention, much preferable to shelling out money to people who make stuff full of weird chemicals, and always around. Although after 6 months of pregnancy, I've actually sort of forgotten about having periods.

yes, I have to chime in and say that I love my Diva Cup. It may be a placebo effect, but I've felt less crampy since I started using one.

I'm also kind of bothered by the frugal non-fiction genre, even though I understand why people write them.

I don't know want to know or hear how he knows about mooncups. I would guess he hangs out with much more environmentally friendly ladies than me. :)

I'm with you on the couponing. I hate it so much. I always tell myself I'm going to use time I don't spend couponing earning money or something, but mainly I just go read. Bad money saver!

Lesbrarian, Laura, Tessa,
Wow, look at all you very environmentally aware women! I salute you, but after reading about the Diva Cup, I just don't think I can do it. I got as far in the FAQ as "what if the diva cup gets stuck," and at the risk of TMI, all my muscles, not just my lady ones, were clenching too hard to even think about inserting such a thing. I'd never even heard of such a thing! We must all be keeping too quiet about how we handle these issues.

Tessa, I don't mind the frugal genre, but this one was a little much. At heart I guess I'm still American--I don't think actual money is the problem, the same way I don't think credit cards are the real problem. For me there is no greater joy in life than going to a coffee shop, shelling out two bucks, and getting a coffee---it's not like I need millions of dollars, but it would be hard to give that up. I think the problem is learning how to use credit cards and money the way they need to be used, like any other tool.

p.s. Lesbrarian, will you email your new address? Hope all is well for you after the move! And Laura--good luck to you, six months in to the pregnancy. I hope all is going well for you too.
