i bought a juicer from target mine was $59 so far its worked out pretty good for me. i recently had to get a new car and now i have a monthly $480 bill for a carpayment and insurance so i cant afford to juice as often but i love using my juicer.
my juicer has a decent sized opening so i pretty much only have to cut things like apples or pears in half.

Juicing isn’t for everyone though it can and should be. Part of using it does mean an inconvenience of taking it out and setting it up. I just leave mine out so it is easy to set it up when it is in plain view. Then of course you have to get all the veggies out, clean them, cut them into small pieces so they’ll fit into the opening to be juiced. Clean up is easy since you just rinse everything clean. At least mine is easy to put together, take apart, and clean.
Being that I have a large family to make meals for, my meals usually fall the way of whatever I make for the family so I don’t have a chance to buy my veggies for making separately. It’s good that we don’t eat fast food hardly or processed foods from the store. I use lots of veggies in my cooking and red meat or pork is very rare for me to buy. This was a decision I came to years ago about taking beef and pork out of our meals. I mostly use chicken, turkey, and fish.
If you do have the extra money to start juicing, then you should. It doesn’t take much to make juice for yourself when you don’t have others to buy food for, or maybe just you and your spouse. I watched this documentary about juicing and it motivated me to buy the juicer. Even if you don’t juice every single day, it’s still a good idea to do it when you can. If you haven’t seen this movie about juicing called, “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” you should watch it. I learned a lot from watching it. http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com

I've thought about getting a juicer, but I couldn't decide if I'd actually use it. Having to take it out, clean it, buy all the fruit and veggies. Is it worth it?

About a month ago I bought a $300 Omega Juicer. I love my juicer and am so glad I made the decision to buy it because I knew if I didn’t then, I wouldn’t have been able to do it later on. I love the juice I’ve made with it. The problem is not having money to buy the veggies I need to use it when I have to feed the my family instead. There is one farmer’s market out here but some 30 miles away. I would spend too much getting out there by bus just to go shopping. I’m looking forward to the future when I’ll have some extra money to be able to use it and be able to make juice for everyone daily.
