If you do ONE thing to save water – do this!

So, we are in a drought here and everyone is looking at their lawns go fallow and water restrictions and the like … now we’re from Colorado and we’re familiar with common practices like washing only full loads, making sure drips are tightened off, watering only at night, so it has time to sink in, etc.

To keep our potted flowers happy, we implemented a bucket in the shower. While the water is heating up, it pours into the bucket. Then we move the bucket out, take our shower, and put the bucket back in.

We fill that bucket at least twice a week and Mr. Man gets a shower at the gym every day. That’s a lot of water – plenty to keep all our potted flowers happy with several douses each week.
