to keep your cooler coldest this summer when traveling
If you are like
most people, when you fill up the cooler, you go and buy a
few bags of ice to keep things chilled, since most people
do not own enough reusable ice packs to keep a large sized
cooler cold for many hours. But rather than buying bags of
ice, or spending weeks repeatedly filling your ice cube trays,
there is a much easier way to do it.
Start saving up
gallon bottles, such as from juice or milk. Wash them out
very well, fill them ¾ with water, then place them
in the freezer. When you are ready to go, just pop the jugs
of ice into your cooler.
There is also the
added bonus that you can drink the water as the ice melts,
saving you from buying bottles of water on the road or drinking
water from different places that taste a bit different from
what you and your family are used to.
