Interested in saving water (and money)? Here are some resources
Catch water from your shower and use it to water plants.
Go to a carwash instead of washing the car yourself.
If you have a double sink in your kitchen, fill one side with water and put used dishes in it to soak while you are cooking. They will be easier to wash that way without using so much water.
