While I don't do it, I have seen people repurpose 2 liter soda bottles by cleaning them, filling them most of the way with water, and then freezing them for ice. If you leave enough of a head space or squeeze the extra air out before capping, you should be able to keep them from splitting when they freeze. After the ice melts, you should have cold drinking, coffee, or cooking water. Certainly worth a try.

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
