Are You Spending 500 Times Too Much On Bottled Water?

Dopper Water BottleWe all know how important it is to keep hydrated and drink at least two litres of water a day. But if you’re still buying bottled water, did you know that it is costing you five hundred times more than if you drank tap water?

That’s the equivalent of paying £1,500 for a pint of beer or a glass of wine!

The price of tap water is approximately one tenth of a pence per litre, compared with an average of 69p a litre for bottled water. This means that over the course of a year, if you fill a reusable bottle and drink tap water it will cost around £1. But if you drink bottled water it will cost you around £503.70.

That’s staggering, isn’t it?

A woman getting organised in the home and dancing with her mopYour home feels chaotic and disorganised, but you just don’t know where to begin. You can’t even bear to look at the clutter, it’s so overwhelming. And yet you do … nothing. As if leaving it will make it go away. You’d rather do anything but clear the place up. Suddenly everything else seems more important:

‘I’ll start by clearing up the newspapers. Mmm that looks an interesting article from the Sunday supplement three weeks ago; don’t think I’ve read it yet. I’ll quickly skim through it before I throw it out …’

‘It’s going to take ages to get this place sorted out and I just don’t have the time. I’ve got so much on right now’
