We have been filling up the kiddie pool on hot days. Instead of just dumping the water out we use that water to water the garden and flowers. This is a great job for kids-they don't mind the many trips back and forth. I could just put the pool closer to the garden but then how would they get their exercise?
Time our showers. My husband and I can take pretty quick showers (when we want to). Our kids on the other hand lose all track of time once they get in the shower. So we bang on the door or remind them nicely to speed it up. Wash hair, wash body, rinse off, get out.
Bath water. I am the first one to love a full tub of hot bath water. But when giving my kiddos a bath, especially our toddler I put just enough water in to get her clean.
Rain barrels. I love my rain barrels! There are many varieties of rain barrels that you can make. My husband looked at pictures online and watched some Youtube videos and made ours. I am hoping to add one or 2 more barrels back by our chicken coop.
How do you conserve water at your house?
