If you mean the play sand.. Yeah that is nasty dirty stuff & a total PITA to rinse, Do NOT use it.
Bag is $13. Have others found it for much cheaper?Not that $13 is expensive!
I paid 8$/50lb IIRC from my LFS but even at the higher end of the range [13$] it is still FAR cheaper than 'aquarium sand' at what...? 20$/20lbs <- No thanks.
