if you can't be bothered to drag a bottle around, be prepared to buy bottled water when you're out and about

- make use of water fountains
- store water in your car/desk/duffel bag/etc.
- it's not just water; other fluids are also usually good for you -- just beware of excess calories

while im in school i just carry around a water bottle with me and drink it during the class, then after the alss i go down the hall to a water fountain, refil it, and then take it to my next class.

Here are some older threads that might interest you and there are plenty more to read through if you have time to run a search. The best advice I know to give you is never leave home without your water bottle. Whenever I "think" I might be thirsty I drink water. Of course this leads to many trips to the restroom but at least I know I am hydrated:)

I feel like that guy on the commercial, you know the one "Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go right now"

I'm at school usually, so I just use the water freshman fountain. I'm just hoping no seniors spit on them :(

Besides having a water bottle with me. I drink at least two cups of water with each meal. I Don't count the water you drink when you work out.

I carry a gallon jug everywhere I go. I find that I get my gallon in every day easier this way than when I carried a smaller bottle and had to fill it several times.
