We have a two-way bathroom. I keep a small supply of sanitary products behind the mirror. The rest are in my drawer in the bedroom. As for disposal we used to have a bin in the bathroom but ds would get to it so now I usually put them in the nappy bucket in the bedroom with the used wipes and disposables.

I'd just leave stuff fairly accessible and answer the questions. But I'm all about rejecting taboos about women's bodies!
I'm guessing you don't have a high bathroom cabinet? Bag on a hook on the back of the toilet door is a good idea!

Our toilet is right behind the door, so I got an over the door hanger thing. I think it's actually for shoes, but I store bathroom stuff there- including pads and tampons during that time of the month. The rest of the month, they are under the sink.

Everything is kept in the bathroom cupboard. I grab whatever I need, when I need it. I would never hide it from my kids but I completely understand why you would want to. My ds fully believes that tampons are for blood noses. He tried to pocket a few of my sisters yesterday for 'the next time he falls off his bike'.....

I just keep them in the bathroom cupboard, but I have no problem answering questions about periods.

I've got an ensuite but my children provide me with absolutely no privacy so dd who is 5 has always seen what's going on and asked about it and I've given a really brief explanation when she's gone omg you are bleeding!!!! I will explain what's really going on when she's older but she knows it's ok. I just have a packet sitting on the floor by the toilet, the kids don't touch them generally and a little bin.

We have 2 bathrooms, but DS often uses the ensuite toilet. I have everything sitting on a shelf in there. Both kids don't have any issues barging in on me in the toilet or shower, so have seen me changing. Both have been given a very brief explanation (they are only 6 and 3) and both seem to understand somewhat.
I wouldn't worry too much. It's a part of life and normal.

Mine are kept wherever(bathroom cupboard, my room, kitchen cupboard, basically wherever i store them once i buy them). I am the only female and just take them as needed from wherever they are located.

currently utd but prior to that I kept my sanitary items in a bathroom drawer. that way I could pop something in right after a shower. our upstairs toilet is separate from the bathroom but if I was just using the toilet and needed a change of tampon/pad, I'll just go to the bathroom (also upstairs) and do it there then wash my hands after on the way out.
our bathroom kind if adjoins our bedroom (one of those stupid semi en suite but not really type things) so if I had to, I guess I could keep sanitary items in our closet. more convenient in the bathroom though.
we have a powder room downstairs but that's just a loo and little hand washing station in the one tiny room and I keep it really just got guest use. so I don't keep any personal/sanitary products in there at all.
it's a bit tough with one bathroom I agree.
