We used to buy bottled water by the case on a weekly basis which not only cost us money but effects the environment. Now we use a Brita filter that's attached to our faucet, I fill up a pitcher to put in the fridge for cold water and we also have water bottles that we fill up every morning. Not only are we saving $20 (or more) a month on bottled water but we're also saving the landfills from 96 (or more) plastic bottles a month!

This keeps me organized! To track my water, I got a water bottle that holds 2 c. of water. I put 4 hair elastics around the bottle. Everytime I refill the water bottle I slip off an elastic. When the elastics are gone, and the bottle is empty, I know I am done!!
I would always forget how many times I had refilled my bottle, it also saves on using plastic water bottles!!
It works for me, and perhaps it'll work for you. I eat 4 meals a day, and for each meal, I make sure to have at least 2 glasses of water; I just take a sip between each bite. By the end of the day, I am able to meet (or go beyond) my water requirement.
Having a 16 oz water bottle helps.
