1of 15 Foods You Should Never Buy Again

27 January 2012

8. Bottled water.Bottled water is a bad investment for so many reasons. It’s expensive compared to what’s coming out of the tap, its cost to the environment is high it takes a lot of fossil fuel to produce and ship all those bottles, and it’s not even better for your health than the stuff running down your drain!Even taking into account the cost of filters, water from home is still much cheaper than bottled water, which can run up to $1 to $3 a pop.If you have well water and it really does not taste good even with help from a filter, or if you have a baby at home who is bottle-fed and needs to drink safe water, buy jugs of distilled or ‘nursery’ water at big discount stores. They usually cost between 79 cents and 99 cents for 1 gallon as opposed to $1.50 for 8 ounces of ‘designer’ water. And you can reuse the jugs to store homemade iced tea, flavored waters, or, when their tops are cut off, all sorts of household odds and ends.
