Would you get a used mattress?

DD is outgrowing her toddler bed. But, we can't afford to spend a couple hundred dollars on a new mattress set and frame. And, I'm kind of weirded out about getting a used mattress set from someone since I'm a germaphobe.
Would you get a used set to save money?

Hell to the no. Would you buy used panties or a used swimsuit?

No, never. A lot of places have financing, maybe you could do that?

No!  And, in most states it's illegal to sell used mattresses.  FOR VERY GOOD REASONS!!  There are tons of mattress stores that sell cheap sets.
