Bottled drinking water should be kept in a dark place out of the sunlight.

I have a nice ice chest so I just put my extra bottles of Evian or Aquafina or whatever might be on sale at Sam's club and place them out of the plastic shrink wrap and into the chest. They say it's not a good idea to let the sunlight shine on the plastic because the sun's ultraviolet rays make some kind of chemicals go out of the plastic and into the water. OMG, I wonder why the MFG'ers would put stuff in the plastic that is bad under the sunlight? Any how I keep mine in the chest so the sun don't shine on them and they are basically ready for me anytime and I can add a bag of ice on them when I am taking a short trip like to the lake and have all the cold water or whatever I want. I kind of figure that's what everyone else does too. When It comes to bottled water, , price is the main thing.

I put all the bottled water we get in the fridge and store the rest in a cabinet.

That will do the trick. Also, it is actually less expensive to buy a Brita Filter Quart pitcher that takes tap water to a higher level and can be stored easily in the refrigerator because it's shape is elongated, not round. I have one of these:
Brita water filter pitchers come in different sizes and colors but they all bring you fresh tasting water! Read water filter pitcher reviews here.

I don't buy bottled water. All of that plastic just upsets me. My husband and I have metal bottles that we use. We fill them at night and drink them the next day.

There may be a sports bottle made of stainless steel that also provides a filter. I will have to look for such a thing:

Can you go to Target and buy a water filter bottle? They make sports bottles that contain a small filter that lets you pour tap water in it and when you drink from it the filter traps the chlorine and particulates so the water tastes fresh and clear. I think the maker of this product is on this site listed in the link I made for you: It is a Brita water filtration water bottle for people on the go or for someone who can't get bottled water on a regular basis. Check out the link below. Of course there is one drawback, the bottles are plastic but I think they may be BPA free. If so the sunlight has no effect on them. I plan on purchasing one on Amazon next month. Or get one at Target or Albertsons
Brita Filtering Water Bottles let you take clean and fresh water with you wherever you go. They are BPA-free, reusable and can be refilled with tap water.
