|LaCroix Flavored Soda Water|
Recently, the State of Oregon raised the bottle and can deposit from a nickel to a dime. Ten cents times 48 cans is almost $5, $5 once every two weeks is like $125 for the year. $125 is not to be sneezed at, unless you have to spend 125 hours jumping through hoops to get your money back. Not to mention that most stores will only pay out something like a buck and a half on each visit, so it's not like you can save them up and do 'em all at once.
Since I throw the cans in the recycling, the price of an ice cold can of soda water has gone from 30 cents to 35. Still much cheaper than beer, which is usually about a buck a bottle.
