OK so I thought I posted this yesterday, but I still don't see it, I apologize if it appears twice. I have always used a pad as a backup (even when I used tampons before I had heard of cups) and I've recently decided that I'd like to switch to reusable cloth pads. I saw this deal in another thread: http://partypantspads.com/products/cloth-pad-curious-giveaway (the deal is, one free liner to new customers only, just pay the $3.99 shipping). I've been looking at various sellers, and it seems like most of them have deals for buying large amounts of pads, but everything I've read says don't buy a bunch from one place until you're sure you like them. So, I'm really interested in finding similar deals to the Party in My Pants one. It doesn't have to be free like that, but I'd like it to be a great deal on just one or two pads. If you know any, please share!

What a coincidence, I've just been researching this! I've been using cloth since 2006 to back up my cup but I just recently started getting antsy to buy some new things.

These 3 videos have some good tips and list various inexpensive brands:

3 brands that stuck out to me as good deals were GEM cloth http://gemcloth.webs.com/clearance.htm , Cozy Cloth (which currently offers free shipping on orders over $25 for this month!) https://www.etsy.com/shop/cozycloth , and MamaBear LadyWear https://www.etsy.com/shop/MamaBearBabyWear?section_id=5887106&ref=shopsection_leftnav_4

GEM Cloth and Cozy Cloth have good reviews on youtube.

If you follow pad makers facebook pages you should find a lot of sales and some giveaways.

LunaPads might still offer a free panty liner for new customers, just pay shipping, but I couldn't find it last time I checked out their site.

Good luck and try not to go overboard, it can be difficult with so many choices out there

Thanks for those links! I like the tip to create an alternate Facebook identity to enter giveaways. I ordered a MamaBear LadyWear pad on eBay, I think her three-fold design is really interesting. I also ordered one from littlebeecreations.com (except I ordered it on her ebay, her seller name is lmknoebel) she has very low prices and you can choose the fabric you want.

Glad to have helped =) I'd be interested in knowing what you think of those pads when you try them out.
