I have no problem with water. I usually get in way more than recommended daily.

I drink from 2 16-ounce bottles of water and refill them both twice - I mark them with "1" and "2" so that I always know how much I've had. I drink the first one from 10am-1pm, the second from 1pm-4pm, then 4pm-7pm and 7pm-10pm.
I find that I can drink more water if it isn't icy cold, so I keep a sport bottle on the counter and refill it from the Brita in the fridge.
btw: this thread reminds me of a funny story from years ago when I was kid. My friends mom was on one of the first 60's diets that required you to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. This was before bottled water, sports bottles, etc. so she got herself an inexpensive set of 8 glasses and would keep them lined up on the counter to keep track of her water. My friend and I thought it was hysterical to keep sneaking her used ones back on the counter without her knowing. I bet some days she drank 12 glasses of water.
i have a 32 oz waterbottle i keep with me at all times. I go through 2 bottles at work. I find if I keep the bottle with me I will drink water instead of splurging on a soda.

I use refillable 16oz bottles and drink a bottle between each meal as well as after working out and then drink tea/coffee with meals. I've been drinking at least 8 cups of water a day, but my goal is 10-12.

I use a 20 ounce re-fillable water bottle. I don't care about water temp so I fill it at night and leave it on the counter next to my makeup and hair dryer. I start drinking the moment I get out of the shower. Usually by the time I get to work (7am start), I have drank the first bottle. I refill as I walk in the door to my office and then drink throughout my morning. I am an RN in a surgical center so I can't have it with me always but by lunchtime, I've managed to drink most of it. I finish it during lunch and then refill before I head back. That third bottle is finished by the time I pull in my driveway at the end of the day. So there's 60 ounces right there. I refill again before I workout and there's 80 ounces. So for me it's easy as it's a part of my routine. I had a hard time getting started but once I did, it became routine. I now find myself craving my water if I have a very long surgical case and can't get my sips in!
I freeze 6 20 oz water bottles, and pull them down to melt at bedtime. As they melt, I drink them, and when they are empty, I refill them, and put them in freezer. I drink 5 a day, so the 6th is so I never run out.

I keep 4 16 oz bottles of water where I will be spending most of my time. I make sure they are in view. When finished with one, I remove it immediately.
