If you mean fluffy bedding you shouldn't be using it at all as it is very dangerous for hamsters, it can get tangled around their feet cutting of circulation & if swallowed cause dangerous blockages.
The only thing you should use for nests is shredded plain white toilet tissue.
If you mean substrate where are you & what are you using?

Cypher is correct in that fluffy bedding is unfortunately not safe like said above, it would be easier and much safer just to use plain toilet tissue for nesting material! It will end up being much cheaper and safer to use this anyways! Like asked above, if you're talking about bedding, which kind? Bedding can last quite a while, especially if you're not over cleaning the enclosure

Fitch is also a really good bedding and substrate for hamsters! My Russians love to burrow and sleep in it It's a lot safer than fluffy bedding and it's really cheap to buy in bulk (£20 or 20kg).

I use toilet paper for their nests and fitch paper bedding for their substrate. Lots and lots of fitch under houses with no bottoms so that they can dig, which all my hamsters love to do (three syrians and two roborovskis).
