If you don't like the taste of your tap water try this. Pour some into an open container and place it in the fridge. In an hour or two a lot of chemicals will evaporate out of it, leaving better tasting cold water ready to drink. I put my water in Starbucks cups (the ones with straws) with the lid off, then screw on the lid and off I go - I have three large cups that I rotate - one for morning, one for afternoon and one for evening - that's 9 cups of water ready to go and easy to monitor.

Bottled water is so expensive. The tap water is safe to drink in almost all areas of the country. (Check the government reports on your local water tests). I keep a jug of tap water in the refrigerator so it's always cold and I use lots of ice. I always carry a refillable plastic bottle of ice water whenever I step foot out of the house. Water is included with our rent, so I'm saving "buckets" of money by drinking tap water instead of bottled water.
I add a splash of lemon or lime juice for flavor most of the time.
