Diaper Trash Bags

Lil Tip: Trash Bags on the Go

When I'm on the go and run the risk of changing a diaper while I'm out, I carry a few mini disposable diaper sacks ($8 for a box of 250) with me.

When there's a trash can at your disposal, you're in the clear but many times, that's not an option. These petite trash bags will save your hide, if not your nose on occasion. Small and thin, you can easily stuff ten or so in your diaper bag without adding bulk. And, they are scented with a fresh baby powder perfume that will make everything smell better.

Useful for other things besides baby diapers, I often throw food scraps, used tissues, and my own garbage into them. Keep a few in the car for the unexpected junk that accumulates there as well.

"why not just use those plastic grocery bags you accumulate and have nothing to do with?" That's what I do, too. I split the bags between the recycle bin at my son's school (they get "points" at Walmart for turning them in) and using them at home.

I usually use plastic grocery bags, but now that they are hard to come by I'll have to look for these.

We just save plastic grocery bags, and I keep a couple balled up in my diaper bag. They don't take up much space at all, and they're mostly free.

why not just use those plastic grocery bags you accumulate and have nothing to do with? Just another way to waste money I guess.

$8 for a box of 250 is not that bad, I bet theres expensive ones. Although box of 100 for a dollar sounds good.

I second the dollar tree bags! I agree that these little bags are wonderful! I always include some in my gifts to friends having babies.

$8 for 250 bags seems a little spendy to me... I get a box of 100 for only $1 at the dollar store. Regardless, these are FAB to have around!
