Water Saving Update

I got my latest water bill. This time around we've used HALF the amount of water we used last year.

Last year 20.45 average use per day.
This year 10.57 average use per day.

When I figured it out money wise, we've saved over $18 on just one bill. The only major change we've made since last February is to use our bath water to flush the toilet. That's it. I still use the dishwasher for the majority of our dishes and hand wash the others. I have the same washing machine and dishwasher we had last year.

It's got to be the flushing. Who knew it would make such a big difference? I just wanted to try it as an experiment. I'm not a Nazi about it. Sometimes we do flush with the handle, the boys especially tend to forget. Overall, I'm very happy with our savings and will continue our 'No Flush' methods.
