There are hundreds of reviewers who rightly complain about the price of these refills. I'm quick to join them. However, the Daiper Genie just flat-out works too well to retire so here's what we do to save money.
When the Genie gets full, I pull the bag out and use scissors to cut the bottom knot off and let all the dirty diapers fall into a trash bag or grocery bag, which I then tie up and toss in the outside garbage. I then simply retie the Genie Refill bag and use it again. It doubles (or triples) the life of the refills.
These refills are ok. The system works pretty well at reducing odors...but I just can't cope with the idea of continuing to spend $7-11+ for four bags (which is what we get from each one of these refills).
I decided to try buying kitchen-size trash bags with an odor-block feature. I put the kitchen bag down through the chute and tuck the top around the top of the area that you open to install an official refill. Then when the whole thing is full, instead of tearing the bag and knotting it to start a new one, I just take the old bag out and put a new bag in. Turns out it works fine. When the diaper genie is full it is the equivalent of 1/2 a kitchen trash bag! Since I bought the kitchen bags specifically for the diaper genie, I don't feel like I need to fill the other half of the bag to get my money's worth or something...but, just saying, each of the official refills basically holds less than two kitchen trash bags worth of diapers. For $7-11+.
I saw many posts where people said it didn't fit their Diaper Genie. These were a perfect fit for my diaper genie Elite. I also didn't have an issue with the price but I also did subscribe and save to get an additional %off! I will definitely buy them again. After reading other reviews I also found that cutting the bag yourself can save a lot of the roll instead of having to pull it down so far! We read one review about just snipping the bottom when full and letting the dirty diapers fall into a trash bag but I guess we aren't expert diaper rollers and I felt that the bag was nasty and never wanted to retie the used portion of the bag =) just a personal preference- but the idea was great!
