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.
