Have you tried the Kawaii covers? They are cheap but they have mixed reviews from what Ive seen... 

To save money Im leaning toward  building most of my stash with flat diapers and covers (wait... is there a difference between prefolds and flats?) so let me know your favorite brands!

Never heard of them. I like my Rumparooz covers but they run $14-16. Those are the only PUL covers in my stash. I prefer wool covers. Disana are the best for the most reasonable price $27-30.

Haven't used that brand. I have a couple Flip covers that I use with prefolds or flats. Yes there is a difference between the two. I bought my flip covers as seconds and got them for $8 a piece. You can YouTube how to fold a flat diaper and get good tutorials. I use the origami fold for my son.

I have a Kawaii and like it fine. It's minky. I like it better than the 2 Sunbaby's I have.

Prefolds and flats are different. Prefolds are already thicker in the middle and don't have to be folded as much.

 i have several kawaii covers. i like them but one fell apart and as with anything kawaii they run small. as in my 28 lb toddler cannot fit them. i prefer thirsties duo with the snaps. just my opinion on that.

flats do not have the extra padding in the middle. prefolds are already made with the middle pannel thickers and they fold easier, hence prefolds.

i have all my prefolds from jackbenatural.com. had them for 1.5 years well used and only one has a small hole but still useable. i here a lot of people swear by green mountain diapers though too.

my personal fav is a prefold stuffed into a pocket. this way i can make them up and dh can use them without figuring out a prefold. (somehow that is a challenge for him. lol). very absorbent.
