I'd say this was a fuck-your-parents'-lives. Hope things get better for you all soon, OP.
I did this when I was unemployed. You get used to it and it's a small yet effective way to save money. Juice isn't cheap.
Why not just save even more money, and drink your spit? Hell, go a step further and just steal from your neighbors. They don't have watered down soda.
Try maybe suggesting other ways they could save money? Doing some research on what their biggest expenses are and how to save money on them could help. Also, maybe just avoiding buying sodas altogether since (I presume) they're not necessary? Families can save on plenty of money simply by being more conscientious on their habits and etc. It could help. Hope things get better for you all.
Maybe you should just stick with water and not have watered down anything. Why torture yourself? Water is great on it's own. Unless you hate water...
Best advice! And if pure water is a problem because you don't like it, it's very easy to flavor the water, rather than watering down the soda and juices. Have you ever tried a slice of cucumber or lemon in a jug of water? It's completely different than just flat tap water.
It's payback when you drink their whiskey and replace it with water!
At my house we've always put water in our juice. We've always been told to because our parents said juice has too much sugar. Now I can't drink most juices without water, it just tastes weird, but I never had to dilute my soda. I was just only allowed to drink one per week
