Save money on juice, and make it more thrift friendly,  by using all the juice that you buy, not only in juice containers, but in the cans that store food items like fruit. Juice can be used to make popsicles,  or it can be used to flavor jello and sauces.  You can also add more sugar to juice and make syrup.  Most flavors of juice can be combined.
