Make Your Own Ice for the Ice Chest

Going to the beach or an outdoor function and need ice? Empty your ice bin once a week and store in plastic bags in your deep freezer. When it's time to fill your ice chest, you already have plenty of ice and no need to go and pay for high dollar small bags of ice. Use your empty 20 oz soda and water bottles as ice cubes, fill them with water and freeze and add to your cooler and they keep your good "usable" ice from melting as fast. It works, I do it all the time!

Make Your Own Ice For The Ice Chest

I save our plastic juice bottles and freeze water in them to use in our ice chest. We live a considerable distance from the grocery store and this saves having to rush home or having things melt or get hot. They can be reused many times before the begin to leak. (07/13/2009)
