Be Frugal, Drink Water
Posted By Smockity Frocks On November 5, 2009 @ 10:34 pm In Frugal Friday,Parenting | 5 Comments
I have written before about how we like to be frugal and drink water, but it was brought to mind when I was buying those cute little juice boxes for our Celebrate Fall party .
I was going for simple, so I didn’t want to have to pour kool aid into cups, and I wanted the party to be something special, so I went ahead and splurged on something we normally don’t have.
I thought of how much extra I would have to shell out if our kids were accustomed to drinking juice or soft drinks as a daily habit.
We offer milk to our children at meal times and tap water at all other times throughout the day.
If we are going out, say to gymnastics, I fill up these nifty stainless steel water bottles  from the tap.
On the rare occasion that we eat out, we order water to drink.
It really is a simple way to keep your money in your pocket. Be frugal, drink water!
