30 Days...30 Ways to Save

Day 18: Nature's Best

By Zaneta Lowe  - bio | e-mail

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -- We're in the final stretch of our special series, 30 days... 30 ways to save! Day 18's tip is something you can use every time you sit down for a meal, but you'll still save big if you do it just once a day.

You crave the extra dose of energy it gives you and even enjoy the fizz, but each sip of your favorite soft drink is literally fizzling out your bank account.  Back in the day,when families sat down for meal time they usually had a glass of milk and yes "nature's best"--water!

 We know it's hard to do and aren't suggesting you try it for every meal,but look at it this way!The average family of four spends nearly $3.00  a week in drinks for one person or about 10 bucks for the whole family,but if you opted to wash down one meal a day with a glass of water you'll be surprised  when you keep nearly $500.00 in your pockets at the end of the year. Now don't rush out and buy bottled water. That can also put you in the hole. If you bought one bottle each day that easily adds  back up to 500-bucks.
