Get Rick Slowly is quick to point out that if you, on average, spend only five dollars on water and soft drinks in a week, you would save over $250 a year just carrying around a water bottle. Get Rich Slowly reader Austin sums it up quite well:

Every time I'm out shopping for groceries, out with friends for the weekend, or out for the day around town, I bring a water bottle with me. When I'm thirsty, I fill it up in a water fountain or, if I have to, a bathroom sink. [This allows me to avoid]those little two- to five-dollar purchases that really add up when you're thirsty and want a quick drink.

What are the easiest no-brainer ways you've found to save extra money? Let us know in the comments below.
