Showering Water and Heat Saver

Take a shower and close the stopper. This will be a very easy visual picture of how much less water you use than when you take a bath. Most likely the water trapped in the bath after your shower would not be enough to make a comfortable bath.

Plus, if it is winter, leave that hot water in the bathtub. If you just let it drain, you are wasting the heat that could keep your air in your bathroom warm for awhile instead of relying on your furnace. The water "cooling" is actually warming up the air until they reach the same temperature.

Then if you are really frugal, keep an ice cream bucket next to the tub and use that standing water to flush the toilet or water plants.
