Did you know that there is diaper garbage etiquette? Yup! Here is one tip: Don’t put dirty diapers in someone else’s trash!
I didn’t know this until we had our baby, and were at our doctor’s office for the first visit which has a big sign: “DO NOT PUT DIAPERS IN THE TRASH.”
Luckily Carlie knew this, and had pre-packed a bunch of Diaper Genie travel baggies.
The pack that we had contained a container and 25 bags, which lasted us a few weeks. So, I went out on a mission to find some refills, and when I found them, I was astonished and annoyed.
A rolls of 25 baggies costs a whopping $3.97 – that’s $0.17 per bag!!!!!!!!!!!
Why do I find this gouging and outrageous?? Why was I so annoyed?? Because we have a dog, and I often buy dog bags for $0.02 per bag (actually, because I am an Amazon Prime member, I get them for 20% less than that). And, as far as I can tell – other than colour – they are the same bag!!
So, why is Diaper Genie charging so much for these bags?? Because they can, and because people way overpay for anything baby related.
