Frugal Friday: No More Juice Boxes

This spring I decided to stop buying juice boxes. They're expensive, full of sugar, and create alot of garbage! The problem is, I got used to having them at my house available all the time. How was I going to break my kids (and me) of this habit!

It all started when I saw a case of covered plastic thermal drinking cups for $1.00 at a garage sale. Ah ha! These will be easy to fill, stick a straw in, and the kids can run around the yard with them.

Hmm, how about when we need to run errands? I fill our plastic water bottles with ice, then water or juice and it stays cold for a long time. I bought a bunch of them for $0.50 each at our local thrift shop.

I also picked-up some thermal plastic drinking cups with a straw from the thrift shop. My hubby loves these filled with ice water when doing the yard work and my kids love them filled with homemade smoothies.

I don't know how much money I've saved this summer, but it must've been alot :) Sorry Sam's Club :(
