#461 – Have Water, Will Travel

Collapsible Water Bottle

Collapsible Water Bottle

A while back, my sister and I were laughing about how, when we were much younger, we would be out all day, without packing a bottle of water, or three.

Now, it seems that we can’t step out the door without adding at least five-hundred grams to our weight. (One litre of water weighs one kilogram.)

It is a fact that air travel is dehydrating, and given that many people are dehydrated before they even reach 35,000 feet, it’s a double whammy. Your system needs water, as it helps conduct the electrical impulses to your cells.

In the old days, we used to be able to take bottled water through security. Times have changed.

I found this lightweight, affordable option. It was perfect for my recent flight to New York City. (The fact that it’s polka-dotted is a bonus!)

Once I cleared security, I filled it up at the fountain. By the time the flight attendant came around to offer drinks, I had already finished the water in the bottle. I ended up getting a refill from the flight attendant.

I also took it out with me on our excursions around New York City. I like that it’s not bulky – once I quenched my thirst, I slipped it into my purse, ready for the next fill up at a fountain.

My only complaint is that it doesn’t hold more water. I did find a larger ones on Amazon.

There’s still time to enter the giveaway for a ticket to Purses with Power. This Washington D.C. event will raise money to benefit The Arthritis Foundation.

  1. That’s a very cheery bottle. I have a small flat bottle that looks like a mickey of gin. It always startles people but fits well in a purse

  2. what a great idea! Putting it on my list.

  3. I have one of these that I keep in my gym bag. It’s great that my load is lighter after I’ve worked out and the bottle is empty. But I think you are on to something carrying on of these around all the time.

  4. how smart is this! great tip! definitely getting one. Thank you!

  5. That’s such a handy type of water bottle. I don’t think I’ve seen a collapsible version before (and you even found it in a pretty and cheerful color). Thanks for sharing!
