As a frugal mama, I keep a pretty sparse fridge when it comes to drinks. Milk and water (and Yankee Bill’s Coors Light) are the order of the day at our house! However, when we have a party I do pick up some drinks suitable for guests.
For the kids I’ll make up a pitcher of lemonade-or if I’m feeling flush I might buy the Aldi’s brand of pouch drinks (aka “wanna-be Capri Sun”). For the adults I’ll buy soda-but I go with the more frugal 2 liter bottles and then provide plastic cups.
That saves me money-but I am frequently left with several mostly empty bottles of pop. I don’t let the kids drink anything with caffeine, so what am I to do with the leftover cola? Or any other flavor for that matter. I just can’t stand the thought of throwing it out.
Never fear-here are links to 13 fantastic and frugal recipe to use up leftover soda:
So how do YOU use up leftover soda~or is such a thing unheard of at your house!
