Beverages can be another way to save money on your food bill. Many beverages can be made or mixed at home in your own kitchen. All you need are the proper tools and the willingness and commitment to make your own beverages.
Oftentimes the cartons of juice from the dairy case cost twice as much as the frozen concentrates, which makes this an easy way to save money.
When you make your own beverages at home, you will need containers to store them. Yard sales are a good place to look for pitchers. In the photo above is my Tupperware juice pitcher, which I bought at a yard sale for 25¢. I was also lucky enough to find one in the one gallon size as well.
If you cannot afford to purchase containers, free containers are available by using what you have on hand like a re-purposed milk jug or jar. Narrow mouthed jars can be filled using a funnel and usually make the job easier.
