Even the cheapest store brand bottled water costs more than 10 times as much as you need to spend. The cheapest alternative is to use your own reusable metal/plastic bottle or reuse an empty bottle you purchased previously. Then fill with tap water at a cost of 0 cents per bottle! You’ll still have the convenience of the bottle if you plan ahead (i.e., fill some up ahead of time) without the cost and environmental waste.
If tap water doesn’t provide the taste or convenience you want, you will still save a lot with a water filter. For example, a single standard Brita filter costs about $5 on sale and replaces 300 bottles. That’s less than 2 cents per bottle, versus 20 cents or more in the store.
This is also very helpful at the airport since empty bottles are allowed through the security checkpoints. Just fill it up at a water fountain once you’ve passed through.
