Claudia told her viewers that beverages are one of the most overpriced products at the grocery store.
"Skip all those sodas, lemonades, anything prepackaged, pre-bottled," the influencer said.
Instead, Claudia suggested buying powdered packets of your drink of choice, or Crystal Light.

Along with the female patient, Jeremy was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.
Jeremy said: “If I was going to have a heart attack, I couldn’t have had it with better people around me. I will be forever grateful for the amazing team effort which helped to save two lives that day.”

TEXTILE artist Natalie Needham took up art therapy as a way to cope with her dad’s alcohol addiction - and has now helped countless others across the world.
After sewing her feelings onto squares of cloth, Natalie, 32, who works in the Opera North costume department, decided to share pictures of them on social media in May last year.7Natalie Needham took up art therapy as a way to cope with her dad’s alcohol addiction
She was so overwhelmed by the positive response, she decided to set up Stitch Away The Stigma, posting out free packs of fabric, cotton and needles to help others affected by the addiction of a loved one.
Natalie, who lives in York, was praised by singer Will Young for the work she does when the pair met during filming for the recent Channel 4 documentary, Will Young: Losing My Twin Rupert.
The singer’s brother took his own life two years ago after a long battle with depression and alcohol addiction.
Natalie was nominated by her friend Natasha Carr, 40, who’s own father was also addicted to alcohol.
Natasha said: ““Natalie has spoken up about her own experiences and despite the difficulties she found talking about it, she has reached out to so many people with empathy and understanding.”Best Doctor - Dr Lucy Dugmore
ELAINE Nangle was diagnosed with breast cancer just two weeks before she was due to get married - and at the same time the nation went into lockdown.
But fortunately for Elaine, 40, from Reading, her GP, Dr Lucy Dugmore, went above and beyond to ensure she got the very best care.7Elaine, left, with GP Dr DugmoreCredit: Darren Fletcher
The mum-of-three was diagnosed with stage three lobular breast cancer, which begins in the milk-producing glands - called lobules - of the breast, in March 2020.
Elaine said: “After my diagnosis, in shock, I drove to London to collect my wedding dress, which I should have been wearing in just two weeks time but was instead in a hospital, alone awaiting a mastectomy.
“Dr Dugmore called before surgery to let me know she was there and would help any way she could. No matter how busy she was, she was always there to support me in any way possible.
“She championed for me to be transferred to an oncologist with lobular breast cancer expertise at the Royal Marsden and refused to give up until I got it.
“That has made all the difference, effectively giving me the best possible chance for a life without recurrence and a life watching my children grow up.”
Elaine, who has Freddie, 13, and 12-year-old twins, Rory and Darcey with partner Darrall, 47, has rescheduled their wedding to next year.Best Charity - Mothers For Mothers
