Parenting Hack--How to Save a Fortune on Diaper Genie Refills

I love my Diaper Genie. I've had it since Sophie was born which was 7 years ago! But now that I have 2 babies in diapers, buying the refills was costing us about $14 a week. That's an average of $56 a month and $672 a year. On plastic bags. No thanks. 

So one day, when we ran out of refills, I put a scented, kitchen-sized garbage bag in there instead. Turns out, it works great! Can't smell a thing. 

Best part--the savings. Now we're spending about $.17 a bag! Just pop the trash bag in there, push it down, and put the top back on. Once it's full, empty it like normal.

{Easy} Lamp Makeover

I love easy DIY projects, don't you? I bought this lamp for $5 with the hopes that something great would come of it, but for as little as it cost me, I wasn't worried if it all went wrong. Turns out, the lamp makeover went better than I expected! Here's what I used:

ScotchBlue Tape
Valspar Red Oxide Primer spray paint
Rustoleum Sunrise Red Gloss Protective Enamel spray paint
Rustoleum Metallic Oil-Rubbed Bronze spray paint
