Deb's Daily Dollar Idea: Skip the soda
Today's money-saving idea is simple: skip the soda. When you go out to eat at a restaurant, whether sit-down or drive-thru, opt for water instead of a drink. You may only save a buck or two, but if you're paying for several people it will add up. Consider also the number of times you buy soda over the course of a year and by choosing water instead of other drinks, the savings really begin to pile up. Add in the serendipity factor of not ingesting all that refined sugar, caffeine and who else knows what, and the health benefits add up also. So do yourself, and your wallet a favor. Drink up, but only H20.
