Don't know what to do with all those empty plastic gallon jugs? My husband likes to fish and hunt, so instead of buying bags of ice we fill up the jugs with water, freeze, then bust them up for free ice for his cooler! I love fresh fish, yum!

I thought this was such a great idea, I just sent it to my son. He fishes and hunts. (09/19/2009)
You know, this really is a good idea. I knew about filling and freezing the jugs, but breaking open the ice jugs and chopping up the ices is so much better. Thank you. (06/26/2010)
We've been doing this for years, but we do not break up the ice, Just leave it as is, frozen in the jugs, and when it melts some, you have wonderful clean ice-water as well as all the ice you can use.
We always use this method when camping also. It's the best trick in the book as far as we're concerned. It is amazing how long the gallon jugs of ice last. Much longer than breaking up the ice too.
