Do Not Waste Your Money Drinking Bottled Water

by Pam on January 24, 2011

Some people spend a lot of money every month on bottled water.   While at work they use the vending machine and pay anywhere from one to two dollars for a bottle  If you are one of those folks who enjoy drinking bottled water throughout the day, I highly recommend saving your hard earned money and investing in a Brita Filter container instead. The Brita filter will help get the chlorine taste out of tap water.  It will taste virtually the same as bottled water and the filters will last a long time.

Bringing a stainless-steel water bottle to work and refilling it with Brita filtered water is the simplest way to save you money every month.  If you are in the habit of buying one water bottle at work everyday for $1.50, you are spending approximately $390 per year!

By kicking your bottled water habit you will not only save money, you will also be doing your part to protect the environment.  Just imagine how much waste you are creating by drinking bottled water.

Whenever we travel or go shopping for a long period of time, we make sure to bring fresh water along with us.  That way we are never tempted to spend money on bottled water.  Although it may take you that extra minute to fill your water bottle before you head out the door, you will not regret it.

I fully agree that buying soda or water from vending machines costs quite a lot of money over the month. I spent around 80 to 90$ a month for drinks at my university store during my first months of classes. Then I decided to just buy 4 gallon water containers and saved 60$ a month.

I live close to New York and can also recommend to simply drink tap water, as long as it is clean in your area. For now I am completly satisfied with tap water and don´t spend money for water at all. I even make money buy returning the empty water bottles of housemates which sums up to 2-5 $ every now and then and keeps the streets a little cleaner too :).
