    Default For those with 1 bathroom

    We have just bought a house and it only has one bathroom. In fact, all grouped very closely together is the toilet, bathroom and all 3 bedrooms. So, personal privacy is a bit of an issue, especially when af is around.

    If you only have 1 toilet/ bathroom, would you care to share your storage or system for where and how you keep your sanitary products handy?

    Currently I have a box of tampons and a packet of pads and some nappy bags on the window ledge above the toilet, but it's proving a pita. The other day I dropped a brand new tampon into the toilet as I was getting something else.
    And sometimes after a shower I like to have these things handy, and they're in a separate room (toilet is right next door, but separate).

    I need good storage and a good system- I'm so not ready to explain to my boys about periods just yet- blood really freaks them out to the point of fainting

    Help!

    I have a little bathroom bag. I keep 2 of every thing in it. Just take it when needed. It lives in my make up draw most of the time. It is half the size of a normal bathroom bag.

    I guess I'm used to having an ensuite where everything you need is on-hand.
    So what I'm concerned about with leaving ten in my bedroom is the inevitable questions from my boys when they see me walking with them. If they ask, I'll answer honestly but I don't know if they're ready for that kind of info yet and I would rather avoid the situation at this stage.

    I think I'm being neurotic, aren't I?

    I just keep mine in the bathroom cupboard underneath the sink. That way they're out of the open but still nearby when needed. You could even store them in a toiletry bag if you like. Or what about in a draw in your room then you can grab them as needed?

    When we used to have just one toilet separate from the rest of the bathroom I had a basket next to the toilet with extra toilet paper and a little box of tampons tucked in the basket as well.

    I used to keep supplies in a drawstring bag and hang in from a hook on the inside of the bathroom door.

    I have almost always had 1 bathroom. I keep it in my bedroom. Take it with me for shower etc.

    For discretion you can always have a nice purse/container in the vanity and and store it there?

    There's a glass shelf above our toilet for toilet paper/cleaning stuff etc to go on (we rent & have seperate toilet/bathroom).

    I just leave a make up bag on the shelf & put what I need in it then when AF's done it goes away until next month.😊

    A small cabinet with a door next to the toilet?
