We just received our second water bill since we have moved into our new
house and it was very high! The bill is $69.75 for one month! That
includes 21.80 for water, 33.95 for sewer, and 14.00 for trash.
Obviously our sewer bill is high.
There are 3 of us living here, me, my
husband, and grown son. Do any of you have any ideas on how to cut our
I’ve thought of not letting the water run while we brush our teeth, and
turning the shower off while we are soaping up, but that is all I can
think of. I do use an automatic dishwasher once a day, but I heard that
using the dishwasher once a day saves more water than washing them by
hand 3 times a day. Do any of you know which is cheaper?
Thanks, Nancy Ann

Instead of you working for your water, make your water work for you. Keep the water from showers or baths and use it to flush your toilets. Put a bowl in the bathroom basin to collect the water you use when you wash your hands.
You can also use that water to flush your toilet. Keep a bucket next to your kitchen sink and use the water from washing dishes to water your indoor outdoor plants with.
