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.
St. Patrick's Day is just a fun holiday and so the decorations and crafts should be too! I saw this frame at Michaels and thought it would be perfect for a fun and different St. Patrick's Day 'wreath'. It was easy to make and didn't take long at all! Here's what you need:
Baked Italian Parmesan Sliced Potatoes are an easy side dish that go great with everything from steak to fish. These even make a great snack. Making them is simple--throw all of the ingredients in a bag, shake together and bake!
Ingredients 6 potatoes, sliced 1/4 c. olive oil 1 packet Zesty Italian seasoning 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese 5 pieces of bacon, cooked and chopped salt to taste Directions Slice potatoes to 1/4" to 1/2" thickness. (You can slice them again in half like I did or leave them as is.)
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!
