    During the summer months I keep a dishpan in my kitchen sink to catch all the water that we use washing our hands or rinsing something. When the pan is full I use it to water my
    outside plants. You will be amazed at how much water you can catch this way.

    As cool as these are, my water bill for the YEAR is never more than $200. This is for a family of 5. Not sure if it’s the fact I have a front loader & only use the dishwasher (with my kids doing dishes, it saves water) is a factor or not. Most showers are less than 10 min (except my husband, go figure). Even when we had a pool a couple of summers ago, the bill for filling it was still less that $40 for that month.
