This is not a necessity, but it's nice to have in the bedroom so the bedroom doesn't smell like diapers. I never used the diaper genie, but I know it gets mixed reviews and I know people who hated theirs. I love this. Right now we only are needing to change the bag about once a week, so definitely not too pricey as far as the bags go.
