I have;
3 mesh briefs
8 maternity length pads with tails
5 disposable underpads 18x24 inches

I can do FFS if you can throw a couple bucks in for gas.

Just PM me if you are interested.

What are the "maternity length pads with tails"? I don't need the underpads - I have a bazillion this!

They are like pads but they have tails that are the same length as the underpants form front to back. It's what they give you at the hospital.

check around thrift stores for plastic sheets. We found 2 king (regular king and we were in California where everything is Cal king) sized ones in our tiny town. I couldn't believe it. I think they get donated by old folks homes and hospitals. It cost like 2 dollars.

The plastic backed sheets are semi-absorbent - they go on the floor to protect carpeting but they aren't slippery, they are only like 75 cents a piece :-) I have a double set of sheets on our bed, with a PVC-free shower curtain layered between them!

Ugh, auto-correct... My other post was supposed to read "bazillion chux" not "this" - anyway, I would love to take the mesh panties off your hands!

That's fine. How does $5 sound total?

I have 4 perineal instant compresses. Too bad, I had most of what you needed but just donated all of it to get it out of my closet. Do you just want 2 of the compresses? PM and we can work it out.
