Cheap shooting pad/goal?

Hey, I'm just getting into hockey now and am working on getting the different things that I need for it. I was wanting to get a shooting pad and a goal so I can practice without having to use the back of my couch, but it seems like, at least for the pads, most of the ones I've found are ~100 bucks. I didn't know if there were any alternatives/cheaper ones that people would recommend.

Thanks

there's a thread on it somewhere, but for like $15, you can make your own pad that works pretty well. I'd find it but I'm on my phone at work.

I got one off ebay for $31. They also have a bigger one for $55. As a note it is not as slick as I thought it might be, but it still works fine.

Like you, I was new, and this setup helped me immensely with confidence with the puck.
