You could after you drink them wash them and put foil on them. Then to sanatize, put in oven at 300 degrees or something for a while, the foil will keep the bottle sanatized till you are ready to fill, just pull foil off, and fill. Only do oven when you have like 30 bottles to put in there, but foil right after dry after washing.
Thats what I do

Just check craigslist religiously. You'll find the stuff you need even if you only get one piece at a time, it'll be worth it when you can ditch the bottling process. I'm not sure I'd still be brewing if I had to bottle every time, I'd certainly not be brewing as often. If you know you're going to keg at some point it wouldn't hurt to keep an eye on the deals posted here on used cornies. There was a good one posted the other day which I noticed hours after ordering some on NB.

LMAO, this is why my non-beer-drinking wife said "Thank GOD you got kegs" a few weeks ago. That and me taking up a shelf of the fridge with filled beer bottles.

At the end of the day I go and dump the bottles out from that day, squirt in a bit of starsan (for good luck), fill it up about 1/4 of the way with warm water, put my thumb over the top, shake like crazy, then rinse is out and hold it up against light to look for nasties. I put them in a spare bottling bucket upside down to drain then when it comes bottling day just sanitize and bottle!

I'm going to be kegging by summer. Have two fridges in the mancave, so one will be for keggs. Been watching prices, so shouldn't have to go too deep to get set up. Wife just got a remodeled kitchen (old stove is now mine) so I won't hear alot of complaints (I hope).

I actually don't mind bottling, but I eventually want to keg as well. I just picked up over 250 bottles for free so I will be bottle conditioning a LOT of beer. Removing all of these labels is going to suck though.

As I discovered last time I soaked a few bottles. The labels just fall off!
