I buy gallon jugs of distilled water at the grocery store.

I use a Brita filter jug in the fridge.

We use Brita filter pitchers and filter all our drinking/cooking water. :) We don't buy bottled water unless we're on a trip or something (and if its a road trip, we take our Brita filters with us!). We try to be ecological and buying those individual serving bottles is really not a good idea, unless of course, it's for a group picnic or a road-trip, as I mentioned. Then we save them and re-cycle them. :P We thought, too, in the long run, it's cheaper to do the pitchers and buy new filters every 3 months, than to keep buying the bottled water all the time and having to recycle the bottles.

Now, my stepmom actually lugs her big plastic bottles (that fit in a water dispenser in her kitchen that keeps the water cold or hot) to the water store and gets her purified/filtered water that way. Since she re-uses her big jugs, she isn't wasting money or resources by buying new jugs every time she needs water, so it's quite inexpensive. She pays only for the water. And her dispenser is free now, no monthly charges, as she gets her own water and not a water company that comes to the house delivering fresh jugs of water. Of course, it costs her some electricity for the dispenser, thought, but not that much. :P

We have had a boil water advisories so I try to have some bottled water on hand...I buy it on sale.
My ds though usuallly boils water and lets it cool and fills water bottles he has sterilized for us and then he puts some in the fridge and some in the freezer.
We can and do drink our tap water but this past summer and recently there have been some issues so it's always good to have an alternative source of water.
Recently our water was shut off for an unspecified amount of time so I had asked my son to just make sure there was water in the kettle and maybe a bucket full so we could flush the toilet but he had lots of water saved for when I go home.
We weren't sure how long it would be off so he definitely was prepared.
Sometimes I buy the larger jugs of water from Shopper's Drug Mart when they are on sale just to have in case of an emergency.
I also bought a case of 24 bottles for about $2.50 which was pretty reasonable...if I need a drink sometimes I might buy a bottled water form our local Giant Tiger...they only cost .33 cents and it helps if I am on the bus for a very long time heading home.
