Half the price…

juice_orange.jpgI’m always looking for a good deal… Good deals allow us to be wiser spenders and more generous givers.  I was having breakfast with a friend of mine, and I couldn’t believe what was before my eyes – one of the best good deals for orange juice and it’s so simple!

Alright, so maybe I’m the only one behind the 8-ball on this, but I had never thought of this before… Think of your favorite breakfast place and their delicious orange juice…. Maybe you’re a pulp person, maybe you’re not…. But think of that thick, delicious orange juice…. What’s it costing you?  Maybe $2.25?  Maybe $3.00?  Sometimes more at the fancier places here in Naperville, $3.50 or $4.00…. And you never get a refill on it, you typically always have to pay another $3.50 for the second glass!  It’s expensive, no doubt.  Much more expensive than that cup of coffee, and definitely more expensive than the sensible glass of ice water.  Well, hang onto that glass of ice water for a minute….

I had ordered water, and my friend ordered orange juice.  He asked for an empty glass so he could share his orange juice with me.  I thought that was sweet, but then we’d each only have half a glass…. Not true!  He took my glass of ice water and filled each one of our orange juices the rest of the way up with water!  And you know what?  You can’t tell the difference!  Orange juice is typically way too strong anyway!  And you know what?  We probably could’ve diluted it again!  I’m going to try it with three or four people at the table.  Look how cheap orange juice can get when you split it between four peeps!

Five loaves and two fish… and one glass of orange juice… :)

That’s awesome! It’s a good idea. Saving at the same time sharing.

Long time no see 😉

You are absolutely right that you can’t tell the difference… I’ve been doing this for quite some time ever since another guy in the Air Force showed me.

Anyways, send me an e-mail one of these days so we can catch up :)
