Anyone who knows me and has read my Blog will know that this is my downfall ... Sparkling Water.
It's not bad as my only real vice, at just 17p per bottle it's super cheap, and my favourite this T*sco one is very tasty. I've found the Sainsbugs one goes flat very quickly after opening and I do like my bubbles.
Whenever I have Blogged about drinking this in the past lots of folk leave comments telling me to invest in a soda stream thingy (small letters on purpose I am not advertising) and be kinder to my pocket, and also that I should be kinder to the environment. We costed out doing just this and found it would take us years and years to break even with the outlay they are currently from around £50 for the machine and then according to the website it will make you fizzy water for 17p a litre, twice the price of what I have been paying. As I do use approximately half my bottles as cloches for plants or starter pots to grow things in (I cut them in half for either), not all my bottles go back for recycling either. So it's not all bad on my part.
Now I have just finished the last bottle of my stash and I have had a decision to make. Do I splurge what is almost two days worth of money to buy my usual 10 bottles of water or do I just switch to tap water, where we used to live this would not have been an option as our water tasted dreadful even after filtering, but here in North Wales the water is lovely straight from the tap and I do drink it.
I have ummed and arghed about this over the weekend and come to the conclusion that I will buy my usual 10 bottle stash and see how long it lasts me. I will make an effort to drink more tap water during the day to eke out my new supply of sparkling water and then work out what it costs me for an average week of bubbles.
Decision made :-)
