Save Money On Beverages
Here are some easy tips that will help you simplify and save money on your beverages.
Kids don’t need and usually can’t drink an entire can of cola by themselves.
Pour the cola into a glass so two kids can split one can so you don’t waste an entire can of cola.
Mix 1/2 cup strong coffee with 1/2-3/4 cup of warm milk. Save $2 by doing this instead of buying a latte on the way to work every day.
1/4-1/3 of most Americans’ grocery bill is spent on drinks, drink mixes and sugar for the mixes. Cut down on the amount of coffee, tea, juice, milk and soda your family drinks. Kids don’t need pop or excessive amounts of milk and juice. They can drink water.
One serving of orange juice is ONLY 1/2 cup. That juice counts as one serving of fruit. Most kids drink way more than 1/2 cup for a serving. Excessive juice is no better than a melted down popsicle.
Stir coffee or cocoa with a peppermint candy cane. It adds a nice peppermint flavor. Crushed peppermint candies may also be added.
Save extra coffee in a thermos instead of making a new batch or buy a smaller coffee maker.
