How can I get rid of, and keep away, my pubic hair without going broke?

I'm a young woman. I hate having pubic hair. Shaving is not working for me, and I can't afford laser treatments or monthly Brazilian waxes. What can I do?
I've been shaving the whole thing for about a month, and it's kind of a huge disaster. I have zero problems with the delicate bits that should be the hard part, but the mons pubis is covered in razor bumps. Exfoliating, hydrocortisone, and fancy shaving creams don't help. Shaving in the direction of the hair leaves nasty sharp obvious stubble.
Is there some shaving secret that I don't know about? Because pubic hair seems to be pretty unacceptable these days, so everyone else must be finding some way to get rid of it. Are all my hairless peers getting regular waxes? Because that crap is $50+ a pop, I can't afford it, and I'd rather not have to regrow between treatments. The same goes for laser removal or electrolysis. I also tried using Nair, but it only removed about half the hair.
Are there any other options for me? Are there any hair removal creams that actually work on thick pubic hair? (I know they're not supposed to be used in delicate areas, but that's not the hair I'm worried about.) Is it worth it to try a home epilator? Or am I stuck choosing between nasty razor bumps and expensive salon waxes?
