Instead of cups I have a reusable water bottle that holds 8 cups of water. I fill it in the morning and drink it throughout the day. It is an easy way to know you did your water for the day! I always end up filling it at least twice!

An easier way I have found to get all my water in, (and not wonder who a water bottle belongs to in my house ;)...is I number my water bottles every morning on the top of the caps with a sharpie. If I want to drink 64 ounces that would be about 4 16.9 bottled waters (our tap water's nasty). This makes drinking water for me SOOO Much easier mentally :)
I love my pink 24 oz CamelBak water bottle. It's marked at the 8-16-24 oz levels, making it easy for me to see at a glance how much water I have drank from the bottle. I keep it filled with ice water on my desk at work and have a goal to finish 3 bottles per day (72 oz or 9 cups).
Of course it doesn't have to be a CamelBak bottle - any bottle that is see-thru and you enjoy drinking from will work! I even have a special koozie ordered that will help keep my water even colder.
