I use Canadian sphagnum peat moss for my whole cage because one of my tegus developed a taste for cypress mulch. The cypress looked better, it didn't hold much water, and it was big slivers so it didn't stick to stuff like the peat moss does. The peat moss is pretty cheep, it's kind of powdery, and a kitty litter scooper works. I don't think you have to give up on sand, I wouldn't think it'd be the best for burrowing in but if your tegus are like mine they only really dig in the hide box. As long as you have a shoe box or a Tupperware with a hole in it and mostly full of peat moss I think you can be innovative, just make sure it's not toxic. There is a difference between sphagnum moss and sphagnum peat moss btw.
