How To Save Money on your Water Billl

With the economy still shaky, and unemployment rate about to hit 10%, every little bit of money one can save could mean a huge difference in their lives. Here are 7 things you can do to save a bundle on your next water bill.

1. While waiting for the shower to heat up, catch the cold water in a bucket so you can use it later to water plants, flush your toilet or clean outdoor furniture. This can save as much as 300 gallons per month alone.

2. Turn the water off while brushing your teeth. This will save 3 gallons per day, or 1000 gallons per year on average.

3. Use less detergent while washing dishes by hand. A smaller amount will clean just as well, and take a lot less water to rinse off.

4. Rinse Vegetables in a fill pot instead of letting the faucet run over them. This can save up to 3000 gallons per year.

5. Instead of putting everything in your garbage disposal, instead create a compost pile. This can save you up to 1000 gallons per year.

6. Put mulch around trees and plants. Mulch allows water to stay in the soil instead of evaporating. This means less watering, which will save you upwards of 12,000 gallons of water per year.

7. Do not water your lawn on windy days. The wind speeds evaporation, and can mean the loss of up to 300 gallons of water in just one session.

These simple steps can save you over 40,000 gallons of water per year. That's a lot of money.
