Use Reusable Water Bottles vs Plastic Bottles

The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Carrie:

It’s amazing how much bottled water costs. We invested around $4-$5 per family member on a good quality stainless steel water bottle. We have just trained ourselves to keep them filled with water and in the refrigerator (we do have an extra refrigerator, so that helps.)

Whenever we go anywhere, all 5 of our children will grab their own water bottle and bring them with us. When we get back home, they refill them and return them to the refrigerator so we always have cold water ready to go.

This has saved us so much money on cheap plastic water bottles. I also know my kids are drinking water that has gone through the extra filtration we have in place at home. We’re not adding more plastic garbage to the environment. And, it’s taught my children good responsibility too.
