WELL-WORLD WEDNESDAY: JUICEBOXES ARE FROM THE DEVIL

We stumbled upon these really really great (read: too adorably cute to pass up) mini plastic reusable jugs at Target for less than $5 bucks.  And for about a month now, we've used nothing since for the kids' school snacks and lunch boxes, as each container stores about twice as much as a juicebox, so it lasts them the whole day.

We stopped buying juiceboxes and those horrid juicepouches entirely, and now buy frozen apple juice, which is waaaaay cheaper, made of much more recyclable material than those huge apple juice jugs, and can be more easily watered down for a less sweetened version.

And yes, it's a little bit of a pain to rinse them out every night and to make the juice every few days, but I'm unemployed...what the hell do I have to complain about?!?!  And, truthfully, it's so minimal that I haven't even tweeted about it once.

Rid your world of juiceboxes, people.  

The path to hell is paved with flimsy pointy-ended plastic straws.

Juice boxes are evil. Thanks for taking a stand. My wife keeps sneaking them in the house when I'm out of town for work.

It's you and me, Mocha Dad, against the world of overpriced, overpackaged waxed cardboard demons!!!
