Where do you store your cup in between periods? Is it in your underwear drawer, under the bathroom sink?

Heh. Me too, only mine's on a shelf above my toilet. The drawstring of my bag broke, so it just chills up there bagless, right at eye level, hahahaha. I live alone also, so I don't think much of it but I sometimes wonder if my friends ever see it and wonder what it is. :D

I store mine in the nick-nack drawer of my nightstand. I would store it in my underwear drawer, like I used to with my tampons and pads, but it's waaaaay on the other side of the room. Much too far.

Good thing it's not all grungy in there (mostly old gift bags and notebooks), because I keep my 2 cups in there, as well as my sister's. She's not quite up to telling my mother I bought her one, yet, so she keeps it in my room.

I have a little stack unit of three drawers in between the sink and the toilet in my bathroom and the bottom drawer is for everything period, Diva, reusable panty liners, and other vagina-related items :)

Under the bathroom sink in a denture container (with vent holes drilled along the top edge) that I bought at the dollar store.

Bathroom drawer, in the box and pouch (I like the boxes, lol). Its just me and my husband, so The left drawer is for all his stuff, and the right drawer is my stuff.

on my dresser or desk in my room... not in its pouch.. just kinda chillin there... haha... i grab it on mornings when i am wearing pants that will wear out quicker if they get wet from discharge stuff... so its just easier to have it right there.. and i don't really care if people see it and ask about it.. thats kind of the point!

I keep mine in the top drawer of my nightstand, along with my cloth pads. I live in a dorm, so under the bathroom sink is not so appropriate (unless you wanna share. . .), but when I lived at home, I'd never put my cup/cloth pads there because it's dusty and I associate it with hiding shameful things.

I have something my girlfriend and I call my "Bag of tricks" which is actually an old wood and leather hat box I got at an antique store because it was awesome, but had no idea what I would use it for.

I used it to store my Game Boy systems and games in for years (my family loved to travel by car, it was useful to have a box of entertainment ready to grab and go), but the Game Boy stuff is now moved to an old Pirates of the Caribbean purse, and the hat box currently holds my menstrual paraphernalia (cloth pads, cups, chocolate...you know, the necessities). In the box, my cups are kept in the bags they came with, except one, which is in a crocheted bag my mom made for me (the strawberry that someone on here posted the pattern for).

I keep the hat box in my room.

My girlfriend keeps HER cloth pads and Diva Cup in the bathroom. We have a shoe holder that hangs over the door of the bathroom, and she uses one whole row for her menstrual paraphernalia.

We're a family of girls (even our St. Bernard is a girl) so no one is around to complain about menstrual paraphernalia within sight.

I have a big box in my closet that says DRUGS on it - I use it for random medical supplies (painkillers, thermometer, band-aids, etc) and just keep my cup (in its bag) in there.
If I know I'll be needing it soon, it's usually just sitting on top of the box ready to go.

Um. This will tell you entirely too much about my pathetic life. But in my school bag, because it's what I have with me so much of the time.

I took a disposable plastic cup and decorated it with a drawing of my cup and the word MOONCUP, so I'd have a dedicated cup for rinsing my cup. That's what I store my cup in. When my period is far from my mind, the cup goes under the bathroom sink. But as it approaches and I want to remind myself that I might want to use my cup or take it out or whatever, the cup goes on the bathroom counter.
