The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Lavonne:
Ever wonder how much water goes down your drain every time you open the hot water faucet and wait for the water to actually get become hot? It's approximately 1 gallon of wasted water. Now I know it's a pain to do, however, place a milk jug or gallon container under the faucet the next time. Then you can either water plants with that water or put it in the fridge to get cold for drinking. A GREAT way to conserve a precious resource.
