It's much more fun to drink water when I put pieces of fruit--i.e. lemons, peaches, kiwi, blueberries--in it. It lightly flavors the water, and if I use a clear glass, it's so visually appealing! No need to replace the fruit when refilling the glass, either. The flavor lasts for several uses.

I saw this television show where this woman didn't want her kids drinking all of the sugary drinks out there so she started chopping up fruit and putting it in the water for her kids to drink. She is now rich & good for her. I decided to take her lead and fill up my wide mouth water bottle 1/3 with fruit then I fill it up with water. The longer the fruit sits in there the more flavorful the water is. I drink tons of water now.
The best part about this is also that my water bottle is like a box of Cracker Jacks...there's a prize in the bottom, fruit! Try it and let me know what you think. I have my friends hooked to this who are not on diets because it is so refreshing.253
Put 1 fruit tea bag in 1bottle of cold water - it will add just enough of the tea 2 the water 2 give it a smell + a small taste.
The smell tricks your mind into thinking your drinking a fruit drink, the taste will be enough 2 get past the non-existent water taste.
1 tea bag will give you enough flavor + smell for 2-3 bottle of water if the water your using is cold + not hot. This ends up saving money too in the long run - you're stretching your $/tea bags farther.
