Disposable pads - to keep or not to keep, that is the question!

So I've been using a menstrual cup and cloth pads I've sewn myself for several months now, and I find that I have no need for my disposable products anymore, yay! I have a couple unopened packages of overnight pads, and I don't know what to do with them. I have this thought in the back of my mind that says "keep them just incase you need them", but when would I need them now that I have cloth pads? So should I keep my disposables 'just in case' or get rid of them? For those of you who've switched to cloth pads/cup, do you still keep disposable pads just in case? When would the need arise for you to use your hidden stash of disposables? If I do decide I don't want my disposables anymore, what exactly do I do with them? Who can I give them to? I don't want to throw them away, but they're just sitting there collecting dust. Any art projects I can do with the pads (this would be a kind of quirky alternative use for pads LOL)? I'm just not sure whether or not I'm going to need them myself anymore. I always think "keep them just in case", but that hasn't been the case for me ever since switching.

Better Cervix Video - And Softer Meluna?

Cervix video:  I kept trying to figure out a way to show how the cervix moves up and down for some women during their cycle and how a menstrual cup responds to it.  Then while looking at my Divacup flipped inside-out,it hit me-- a flipped cup is the perfect example!  So I made a new video to better protray it.  Hope it helps, I also put it on my blog.  I put the video in as the first comment to this post.

Soft Meluna:  Also, there has been talk that a softer Meluna is selling now?  I have seen it on their website:
