JUICE SAVINGS UNCAPPED:  Canabalize Concentrate Cans!

Get More From that Can of Juice!

Concentrated frozen juices are an excellent way to squeeze savings into your budget. A wide variety of healthy juice combinations are available, and when they go on savings, you should go shopping. Concentrated juice is a great substitute for softdrinks. juice5.gif (12842 bytes)By premixing and preparing juice in leakproof plastic pint or quart or drink containers such as rubbermaid or tupperware brand, you can save 1/10th the cost of soft drinks. By adding extra cups of water to the concentrate you can reduce your total caloric intake and increase the serving size also. But wait, that’s not all.

Concentrate juice lids should never be chucked away. After pulling the plastic strips, removing the coated metal lids, and cleaning the juice tops you can store them for later use. Uses include coasters for glasses, carpet coasters for table legs, work bench holders for small parts, soldering iron drip plates, or a temporary cigarette ashtrays.

Tightwad Drink Coasters

Excellent drink coasters can be obtained for free by removing the coated metal lids from frozen concentrate juice tops and storing them until you get a full set.

The answer to this problem comes in the form of tightwad carpet coasters made of rust free coated metal lids found on frozen concentrate juice tops. After pulling the plastic strips, removing the coated metal lids, and cleaning the juice tops you can store them for later use. The metal lids are sturdy, and have a cool silver art decco look. Felt adhesive can also be added to bottoms of the lids if desired.

You may not appreciate guests arriving with cigarettes in hand, but when they do, bring out your tightwad cigarette ashtrays. Sturdy coated metal lids from frozen concentrate juice cans have a cool silver art deco look. By adding thick felt adhesive to the bottom of the lids you can be sure to protect any surface.    - R.James
