We have pretty tasty well water at our house. I usually drink out of a 16oz glass if I'm at the table, or a 32oz water bottle when I'm working out, in the car, or near the computer (ie anywhere a lid is desired). It's pretty rare that I get less than 10 cups over the course of the day, and if I hit the treadmill it's rarely less than 12. I basically just sip away all day.

I buy bottled water. My tap water tastes awful. I put 4 bottles on my kitchen table next to my computer and where I eat. I prefer it room temperature. I make sure I drink that plus I have 3 cups of coffee in the morning and will often have herbal tea mixed in during the day as well.

On work days, it is easy. I have always used the excuse of getting a cup of water in the kitchen to walk away from the desk and whatever I'm supposed to be doing there. I do this several times throughout the day. It also means I have to pee several times a day, and that means taking the stairs to and from the bathroom, and that's good too!

On the weekend, I have to be more deliberate about it. I keep my 12 ounce water mug very visible to remind me.

I bring 2 refilled 16 oz bottles of water at work.
I keep refilled water bottles in various rooms of the house.
If water is readily available, it is easy to drink enough daily.

just about any liquid should count, except the heavy stuff like milk. Coffee, Tea, sodas could as water.

I keep a 24 oz.water bottle with me at all times. I drink 4 to 5 of them a day. It's nice because you finish one and you've already drank three 8 oz glasses.

no I usually only drink one gallon, I have the second gallon in case I go slightly over the one jug. I guess I didn't state it clearly.

Wow Karen so you get in at least 16 cups of water a day.

I do buy bottled water. It is SO much cheaper than all the soda I was buying. I make sure I drink at least 4 of them a day, that's how I get my water in.

I have a 32 ounce water bottle that I take to work which I re-fill at least once (usually twice) during the day. The water filter system is quite a way from my classroom so as an added bonus i get some steps in!

I fill 2 gallon jugs of water and keep them in the frig. Everytime I'm thirsty or go into the kitchen I drink a glass down. I make sure by the end of the day at least one of those jugs is empty, sometime I go into the second jug. I refill them every night before I go to bed so I have a full jug to start the morning off.

I work from home so I have glasses everywhere! As soon as one is empty I fill it up and when I see my glass by the computer I automatically reach for it. By the TV or bedside, I reach for it.
I now miss it if it isn't there!
I still have problems carrying water away from home--buying bottled water is something I don't want to do, if possible.
How do you get your 8 in?
