26x2.0 tubes w/ a 26x2.1 tire - that a problem?

I currently have 26x2.0 tubes on my bike but recently bought 26x2.1 tires. Can I just reuse the 2.0 tubes for my new 2.1 tires or do I need to buy new 2.1 tubes?

The tubes will be fine.

It sounds optimum to me. You should use the largest cross section tube that you can comfortably stuff into the tire casing.
