I mentioned this morning that I need to buy re-useable bottles for Alex’s lunch and snack, so I stopped by Target but I didn’t see any. I figured that Whole Foods would have some, and I was right. They had two racks of Sigg brand stainless steel bottles, which all have a BPA-free liner. I bought two, a .3-liter bottle (pictured) and .4-liter bottle – according to my calculations, that’s about 10 and 13.5 ounces, respectively.
So all that was good. But the price tag was rather shocking – the .3-liter bottle was $17.99 and the .4-liter bottle was $19.99. I rationalize the cost with the savings that I’ll realize by sending diluted juice or plain water in the bottles instead of juice boxes over the course of the school year. I’ll be starting with a half-gallon of Welch’s Healthy Start refrigerated juice that I picked up for 49 cents after coupons. If I can keep finding sales like that, I should at least break even.
