I'm sure that the editors weren't thinking when they included a bottle with a post about saving costs on groceries. Breastfeeding is the #1 way to save money. I know that breastfeeding mothers who go back to work will need bottles.

About the skip-the-puree advice. There is a reason why tier1 and tier2 baby foods are pureed. Fork mashing is likely to leave chunks. It may be okay for an older baby that is ready for texture but for younger babies it may be a disaster. Babies just starting solids usually have trouble learning to swallow anything that isn't a liquid. Introducing larger chunks invites a choking hazard.
