Green Money Savers -- Durable Bottles
Every little bit counts in a strained household budget. This week's tips offer ways to go green while reducing costs.
Tip #3: Break the habit of buying bottled water on the go--even at the airport

You can still pack an empty bottle in your carry-on and fill it up at a water fountain after you've gone through security. As for everyday on-the-go hydration, you can save more than $1,000 a year if you equip your family with reusable bottles instead of relying on throwaway juice boxes and water bottles each day.
