Great idea, but could you clarify one thing? In Step 2, the pics show how you line the pail with grocery bags, but then you say, "There's no need to leave the bags overlapping the pail edges when the litter genie is closed." I'm not sure exactly what you do with the bags before you close the LG, but is there any reason to "line" the pail at all? Couldn't you simply stuff a couple bags in the bottom of the pail (or even keep them elsewhere) and worry about sticking the end of the LG refill in the bags when you empty it? Toward the end, when you say, "Replace clip and put litter bag end inside grocery bag (pic 3)," I can't really see what you're doing. I'm guessing you're rolling up the top edges of the bags and letting them "stand" freely inside the pail so that leaking litter falls into the top bag rather than the bottom of the pail? With your bags, I guess that makes sense. In Austin, grocery stores aren't allowed to provide those disposable plastic bags (for environmental reasons), so I'm using 4-gallon wastebasket liners, which don't really have the stiffness to stand up within the pail.
You write, "There is no need to leave the bags overlapping the pail edges when the litter genie is closed," but you don't explain what you do with the edges. If you're supposed to "line" the pail with grocery bags, how do the tops of the bags stay up if they don't overlap the pail edges? Perhaps there's no reason to "line" the pail at all? Do (or could) you simply put a few bags at the bottom of the pail for and overlap the pail edges only when you empty the LG refill? If so, then there's really no reason to leave grocery bags in the pail at all, other than convenience, right? But then I'm confused by the last step, where you say, "Replace clip and put litter bag end inside grocery bag (pic 3)." How are you keeping the refill inside the grocery bag when the LG is shut, and why does it even matter? Maybe you're just rolling up the tops of the bags and letting them stand freely inside the pail to keep any leaking litter inside the bag rather than on the bottom of the pail? Thanks.
