OK, I saved all my oldest girl's underpants, I know where they came from, they are clean (well, were when I packed them) and well taken care of.

My question.

Would you pass down underpants from one girl child to another IN YOUR OWN FAMILY?

I'd never use second hand underpants from someone else but these are ones that I stored away. My now 8 yr old wore them when she was potty training and my now 2 yr old is in need of underpants.

Would you reuse them or is that gross?

Reusing them for your own kids I understand but not giving them to someone else's kids.

Yep.....i would re-use them as long as they were my own kids underpants and not someone elses.

Within family, sure. I'd rewash them before giving them to the younger kid though since they've been stored for a while. My daughter was given my sister's old panties (my sister Faith is 4 years older than my daughter). And I passed Kyra's down to my niece. I wouldn't let her use used panties from anywhere else (thrift store, yard sale and so on) but from select family members, sure.

Ok. I know that I can get cheap ones but money is a really big issue right now. I'm a divorcing mom with no job not getting cs yet so going out to buy a pack isn't that simple. My DD1 has tons left from when she was little and they are free.

My mom bought dd2 her first pack of undies bc that is what she does when the grandkids start potty training but she's in a tight spot herself too.

I'm hoping (really really hard) that cs kicks in soon seeing as I've been waiting on it since freaking JUNE (finally got to court in Sept, REALLY long story).

There is nothing gross about it. During the younger years underpants don't get that dirty and if you wash them well, it'll be just find.
