Marc and I are actually going to do some renovation work this weekend, but I saw this and thought it was important. Bottled water is over twice the cost of gas? Ridiculous.
If you aren't on a city water system (like my parents) consider buying water from the grocery in reusable plastic bottles. This is really common.
