I just read FlyBaby Diane’s “Ask FlyLady: Are They Clutter?” I would like to share the way I use the colored loops.
I use the 16 oz bottle. I have six different colored loops tied to my bottle. Every time I finish a bottle of water, I tie a loop into a knot. This is the easiest way I have found to make sure I am drinking enough water every day.
I can go through an entire day without drinking water, when I am busy. I have been taught that I should drink at least half of my body weight in ounces of water every day. Without my colored loops on my bottle to keep track, I would have no idea how much I have had throughout the day.
I also have my timer, FlyLady–as you have suggested–to remind me to take a drink!
Thank you for all you’ve done to change my life!
