Brita Water Bottle

I drink so much water that when I go to Vegas, I spend more money buying water than gambling.  I always carry my water bottle with me in my purse everywhere I go, like a freak.  Sometimes when I'm traveling, I even fill up my water bottle at restaurants.  My fiance thinks it's embarrassing but whatever!

So earlier this week I was chatting online with my coworker who sits right behind me and shares my love for water - ok so we were talking shit about other coworkers who sit near us and don't drink any water all day.  It was a slow day.  But he told me that he just bought the Brita water bottles which have filters built in, and when he went on a recent trip, it saved him a lot of money and hassle because he could just fill it with tap water and let the water bottle filter it out!  Woah!  I did not even know such a thing existed!  That would seriously solve all my problems!  So I jumped online right away and bought a 2 pack from Target.

And they arrived today - pretty fast and free shipping from Target!  I am so excited!  The wrapper around them is plastic so you can take them off and the bottles are just solid blue and green colors.  These are 24 oz water bottles, which is perfect to carry around with you in a purse or whatever.  And they were only $18 for both.  You can also buy individuals for $9 each, so there's really no saving at all to buy the 2 pack.  But I figured I might as well get two because I'd probably use them both anyway.  I have so many water bottles it's no joke.  The filter inside is replaceable, of course.  I think I will only be using these bottles while traveling, since at home I always have filtered water.  So I don't think I will need to replace the filter very often.  

So yeah, I'm going to Vegas in a few weeks and will definitely be bringing these!  I can't believe I never thought of looking up something like this before!  So simple and really a lifesaver for me!  I can just imagine how nice it would be in airports too!  Now I won't have to spend $5 on a bottle of water or ask the flight attendants to bring me 3 of the little baby bottles they usually give out on board.  Lol.  Yay!


  1. I drink a ton of water at work everyday too. Constantly filling up my glass from the water cooler.

    I really like the idea of these water bottles. Can't wait for Target to finally come to Canada :)

  2. Hey, Hey!! I'm going to Vegas next month, too! It will be my first time. What a fantastic tip on the water bottles. They will be perfect for my trip! Thank you :)

  3. @Becky: You can get them on Amazon too! Among other places. Google it, I'm sure they are available in Canada!

    @Holli: Sounds like we will be in Vegas around the same time! First time, that's crazy! It's going to be super hot there. But so much fun!

  4. Totally getting these -- thanks for the great tip!!!
