Giveaway: $10 Bed Bath & Beyond Gift Card – 4 Winners!


Earlier in the week I mentioned the importance of water to our bodies. While most of us understand this importance, it can still be hard to try to figure out how to get water into our daily routine. I am going to share a few additional ways with you later this week but here is just one of the ways I’ve found to get more water into my day and that’s having a great water cup on hand.

I’ve tried several different cups to carry with me around the house or when I’m working and I keep going back to the ones made by Tervis. I love all the various designs that they have to choose from and I like that you can even switch out the lid and straws to other colors. It’s a great way to change up one water cup for a few different looks. I’ve found that the ease of drinking through the straw also helps me drink more water in one sitting.


My favorite cup so far? It would have to be the one that looks like a goldfish tank. I’ve received so many compliments on it. I often joke that if the fish begin to look like they are swimming then I know I’ve been online too much. :)

One of the stores that carries quite a nice selection of the Tervis cups is Bed Bath & Beyond. What I love about their store, too, is that they often offer a coupon for $$ off a certain amount spent or for a % off a single item purchase. If you sign-up for their newsletter and/or get on their mailing list you should receive those coupons quite frequently. And pairing one of their coupons with a $10 gift card, if you win one, should get you one of those Tervis cups for nearly free.

I’m hoping that you’ll take a minute to try to win this giveaway so that you can buy your very own cup that shows off your style and helps you get more water into your day.

  1. Glenna says

    Somehow I always remember to have water for my kid, so this helps remind me to drink water too!

  2. Margaret P. says

    I keep my Tervis UNC cup (Go Heels!) filled up with water & ice..I realize I drink more water if it’s cold!

  3. Samantha says

    It’s hard for me to get enough plain water during the day, so I am in the habit of adding a few drops of lime juice to my glass – it’s refreshing.

  4. Stefanie says

    I try to get more water into my routine by always having a water bottle with me at work. I can fill it up in the morning, and sip on it throughout the day.

  5. Samantha A says

    My work graciously provides us with reusable water bottles every quarter. They give us two one for home and one for work. I have accumulated so many over the years I never have to worry about leaving one at work or home so having so many water bottles around I cant help but be reminded of my daily intake of water.

  6. Cynthia says

    I have a Bubba Keg 34 oz cup that I take with me everywhere. It will keep your water cold for hours even in the hot Arizona sun.

  7. curls says

    As soon as I get to work, I put fresh water in my water glass and make sure to fill it a couple times during my workday.

  8. Candice says

    I have never really had a problem drinking enough water. I love it so much. I do try to make sure I always have a bottle with me though.

  9. Sherri says

    I always use some type of insulated cup. I’m not sure why but that is the only way. I can’t just drink out of the plastic bottle.

  10. Vicki N says

    Freeze some fruit in the ice cube trays (along with water) to add to water for some flavor. This helps myself and children drink water.

  11. Melissa A. says

    I always keep cold water in the fridge. It definitely seems more appealing that way.

  12. says

    Before my mom passed, and before being diagnosed with a rare brain an spinal disease which leaves me often dehydrated, I remember tips my mom gave me. She thought water purified the body of all disease an toxins. I often have two separate water bottles. One with morning hours, that I should have finished by noon, the other noted from noon to night so I have my full 8 glasses (or more) by night time. I always keep them at the top of the fridge where the are the coldest and If I’m not in the mood for water and want something sweet, I add a sprinkle of a crystal lite or mio to a water bottle and carry it in my purse. Water helps your skin, hair, and body more than people realize and these tips should always be remembered to keep you healthy and keep your lips kissable and your hair silky, and of course, your body hydrated at all times!!!

  13. Pam says

    I use packets of flavoring with 0-5 calories to add pizzazz to my water in my resuseable bottle that I carry everywhere with me. I also add lemon to my water to add nutrition and flavor to my water and help me be more motivated to drink more water.

    I have a few different Mio water enhancers at my desk at work, so I can flavor up my waters!

  19. Diane says

    I refill my water cup after every visit to the rest room at work and the same at home. What goes in must come out and I drink more that way. Plus gets me up and away from the computer for a little exercise.

  20. Carol says

    Our family often goes in outtings and we leave the bourse for hours at a time. I always bring water and if we get Thursday we have to drink the water. In addition, I take healthy snacks for the kids, whenever they get hungry they have no choice but to munch on fruit or granola bars.

  21. Sue L says

  29. Danelle B says

    I carry water with me everywhere I go and I love using Crystal Light or similar item as it gives you that flavor you are looking for and I forget sometimes that I am drinking water so I end up drinking more than my daily limit which is good.

  30. l bryant says

    I get the enewsletter. Love the small and Big things i learn everyday!!! Thanks!!!

  35. karla says

    In order to get more water intake, I buy a couple gallons of water at the store and bring them to work. I don’t like the water from the fountains so that’s why I do this. By having the gallons in my cube at work, water is easily accessible when I feel thirsty or when it’s lunch time.

  36. Linda B says

    I try to make sure to carry a water bottle or reusable insulated cup with me everywhere. I also have extra water bottle stashed everywhere.

  38. Liz I. says

    I bought a fun pink water bottle that has markings on it to keep track of how many bottles I drink a day.

    I keep a water bottle at my desk that I can refill, and I’ve also started brewing more tea so that I can drink water at home – as I don’t like the taste of our home tap water.

    My trick for water is to place 8 pennies by the faucet and everytime I drink a glass I take away a penny-when all 8 are gone I’ve drank 64oz of water daily.
