I got my Jack LaLanne juicer from Costco for less than $100. If you don't have a Costco membership, you can request a day pass from the Customer Service desk, but you'll have to pay for your purchases with cash (or a debit card...ask when you go in).
Anyway, I love my juicer. It's not the same to use a blender. It's a bit of a pain to clean the juicer, but it can be done in 10 minutes or less. What's great is minimal prep for the fruits and vegetables. The juice tastes great! Kale + apple = awesome. Carrot, apple, and ginger = delicious.
Check craigslist.org and the like for people selling used, too.
I juice with my very inexpensive smart stick, which cost something like $30, plus or minus. The real advantage is that it doesn't discard all that great fiber. Yes, this might not be upscale juicing, but to me this isn't important. I have my juice, and much of my veggie fiber this way. Consider it...
Yep, there I am, swimming through the desert sands. Might just be a mirage, after all. But this is life, and we learn best about it if we explore it, and take our chances. A life unexplored, after all, is one of the saddest things out there.
I would check craigs list and ebay and see if you can get one cheaper. You really don't want a juicer for under $100 because it won't work and it will take forever and a year to clean. I am saving up for a double auger. Green Star (i think) makes a good one. A good blender like a nutribullet may also be used to juice. Actually I use my vitamix so I keep all the nutrients.

I'm looking to start juicing some, but can't afford a few hundred dollars for a juicer. Does anyone have experience with a juicer for under $100 that works well enough for a few uses a week?
I am a newbie vegetarian. I am learning new ways to cook, to eat out, and nourish my body.
