After much contemplation, I’ve decided to curb my water use for January. My plan is to keep a bucket in the shower for the water that flows down the drain before it warms up. I figure that the water can be used for flushing the toilet or added to the washer for clothes washing. I’m also going to try rinsing dishes that do not really need to be washed, like the plate I put my toast on. Does it really need to be scrubbed? I can hear the groans of disgust from the crowd already;) Will keep you posted as to my progress!
