Today is August 23, 2013 and we are still doing this today
For a while now I've been emptying my washing machines rinse water into 5 gal buckets.
This can get awfully demanding at times. Also, as my old boss would say, 'Times are tough
I saw other instrutables on the issue, but nothing in my price range.
As I was shopping at the local $Store, I saw a tote that caught my attention and something flashed in my head just like a bulb ( CFL of course ).
Conservation is not a convenience, to say the least, it involves work and a change in thinking. Everything today is to make our life's convenient, Even if you conserved something, water, electricity, etc once in awhile, its better than nothing.
We do about four loads of laundry a week, 52 times a year. That adds up to 1,416 gals a year in water savings. We have a well and our pump runs every 6 quarts. That is to say my well pump doesn't come on 944 times a year, which I save just under $10 a year. I may not get rich on my savings, but then again neither will someone else
Please take the time to rate this, it helps to see how Im doing.
