Monday Mommy Tip with Mommy Community!

Mommy Community hosts Monday Mommy Tip each week:

Here is my tip for this Monday:

Save money and stay healthier by not buying those pricey snacks and sodas! Practice just drinking water. We only have tea (we make with tea bags for when water is boring), milk (for son and cereal), and coffee! That is the only beverages in the house. Save a lot of money by not having to buy snacks (like cheetos, etc...). For snacks, well, we have peanuts and saltine crackers in case we get hungry in between meals. For our son, we do have cereal and other random snacks for him. He is two years and two months, so he is in the stage where he doesn't want to eat so many snacks.

I know tea and coffee isn't the most healthy, but it is cheaper because you get by the can or box of bags, etc...

Great Tip - we have cut down a lot on soda - we get Orange Juice sometimes for breakfast. I have stopped drinking coffee for health reasons - so we always have tea at home too. The snacks I do have to work on - I am slowly replacing them with healthier treats like fruit.

We do the same in our home!--Water, water, water and LOTS of coffee in the am! We do have juice for the boy--but still dilute it by half with water even though he's three and a half. We also buy the occasional bottle of wine; not nearly as often as I'd like, but often enough to make it a treat for an indoor date night and stay within our budget.

I don't like buying those expensive snacks (especially with all the preservatives and additives)! Here's a post I did about our snack cabinet - we love fruits and veggies too! http://familybriefs.com/?p=18
