Today I am thankful for water pitchers with filters. The house we live in is over 150 years old. The water pipes aren't that old obviously, but they aren't very new either. Our water isn't brown, but it can get a little rusty at times, plus it's city water, so it can sometimes have a not so great taste. Enter the purifying water pitcher, who saves the day! Without one, I would have to buy gallons and gallons of water to last just one week for my family's eating and drinking needs. Not only does it save me money, but it helps keep us healthy, and saves a lot of bottles from going into the recycling. So, for all these things, I am thankful for my filtering water pitcher!
