Bottled Water poll results

In our weekly poll the question was do you buy bottled water? It was just about a 50/50 split.

Yes 53%
No 47%

I thought more frugal folks wouldn't be into buying bottle water.

Momma and boys--people are into convenience rather than practicality these days. The price tag of bottled water is easier to swallow than the price tag of a water filter, and some people just bag the water issue altogether and go straight faucet and damn the consequences.

I, for one of the 47%, do not buy bottled water and have opted to filter my own. The $40 I spent on a filter and refill cartridges from Sam's Club have more than paid for about 3 years' worth of clean water--i bet bottled water for the same amount of time costs more than $40!

I certainly can't get adequate bad-water-related health care for that price for drinking out of a faucet, either.

The filter doesn't have to be fancy--just one of those screw-to -the-faucet types will do.

We do have a filter as well. I just can't see spending a lot of money $1.50 per bottle when you can get it for pennies at home.
