Spending a lot of time away from home I found myself spending a considerable amount of money on bottles of water and juice. A friend recommended to me that I purchase a Nalgene water bottle. At first I was a little hesitant because I didn't want to waste money on a water bottle which wouldn't last me a long time. I finally caved in and bought the water bottle. After the first few weeks I immediately noticed that by bringing a water bottle with me where ever I went I didn't have to buy bottles of water or juice. Within the first two weeks I saved enough money that my water bottle paid for itself. The durability of the bottle is amazing; I usually just strap the bottle onto my backpack and take it everywhere. I bought the 1 liter bottle so I can take enough water with me to last the whole day. Although the start up cost is a little expensive the bottle pays for itself very quickly. I've been using the same bottle for the last 4 months, and I’m sure the bottle will last me for a long time. If you are someone who is always away from home and spend a lot of money on drinks I suggest you buy a Nalgene water bottle and I guarantee you won't regret it.
