Drinking water is one way to stay healthy and hydrated. Did you know that it can save you money as well? Learn why and how drinking more water can help your budget and avoid consumer debt with this Tuesday Tip from the Talking Cents blog.
Drinking More Water to Save Money
Most people are looking for ways to free up money in their budget. Drinking more water is one way to do just that; plus, it comes with health benefits! Here are a few ways it can save you money as well as some tips on how to do it.
- Replace juices, sodas and other beverages with water.
- Use a designated water cup around the house for each person. This will save a little bit of time, money and water by not having to wash so many different cups out.
- Carry a reusable water bottle around instead of buying plastic water bottles all the time. There are plenty of water fountains around to fill them up if you are out and about and need more water.
- Restaurants and fast food chains usually have a free water option- just ask them to have a cup for water. This can save quite a bit of money if you have a big family drinking water rather than soft drinks.
- You might see your health improve and save on related costs. Drinking water is not only a preventative measure against disease and illness, but it’s an essential part of your daily intake. (Please note I’m not a doctor, just speaking generalities!)
Drinking more water- both inside and outside the home- can impact your budget and health in a positive way. While it may not eliminate debt overnight, a few dollars every week adds up at the end of the month. The additional savings can be used toward debt, savings or other financial goals you may have in mind.
