    I replaced the washers in my tub spicket so it isn't leaking any longer.  It's a simple task that most any home owner can perform on their own.

    I brush my teeth while I shower. I am not quite sure just how much water that saves, but I sincerely believe every drop counts right? I have also participated in 10 k marathons for "save water" projects in our city.

    I take a shower once a week LOL j/k.  I wash less laundry by combining non-fading colors with whites, rather than 2 small loads, I have now 1 regular sized load. Also, taking a shower with my wife.  not sure how much water that saves, but it's more fun smile
