Diaper Pails

So I need opinions on diaper pails.  Someone gave me a Diaper Genie but it looks confusing and I don't like that I have to get special bags. I want a pail that I can just use with regular kitchen bags.  Josh is convinced that any and all diaper pails smell awful and are a huge waste of money, but I think it is unrealistic not to have one because I can't imagine going outside to throw a diaper away everytime I change it.  Especially right after I change her and she is still on the changing table, I would have to sit the dirty diaper on the dresser or something until I get her off the table and to somewhere I can leave her for a minute while I go outside.  I just can't picture myself doing that 15 times a day.  Especially in the winter.  It will be much easier to just drop it in a pail next to the changing table and change the bag every few days. Reading customer reviews is so confusing because all the five-stars say, "it's great! doesn't smell at all!" and all the one stars say, "don't waste your money, smells terrible."  Ugh, I don't know who to believe! 

I want to make sure I get one that honestly locks in the odor because I don't want to be wrong in the Josh vs. Sara Diaper Debate.

So what kind does everyone use and what kind is the best?

  1. Honestly.. what we did with my 3 year old and are planning to do with this little lady is, we hung a plastic grocery bag on a hook and got a big box of Ziploc bags. One ziploc for pee diapers, double bag it for #2. Throw away the whole plastic bag at the end of the night. I couldn't justify spending the money on a diaper pail plus having to buy expensive bags all the time to refill it!
