You can use all 5.25 " floppy disks which are rare these days. I think you can grab them somewhere from ebay and for sure from time to time 2nd had ones on a flea market.

Here ebay for example:

If you'll still use your 1541: Well, I would use well looking used disks, too. Disk Boxes with "backup copys" of games are often significantly cheaper. (See also the other thread I answered.)
