Today's tip is a rule I definitely follow (the husband? not so much) - especially now that I am pregnant and use the bathroom 10,000,000 times a day (maybe I should put a TMI disclaimer on my blog?).
Okay, if you have never heard this phrase you may be a little confused. Let me explain. It simply means that you do not flush the toilet every time you go pee; though you do flush every time you go poop.
Now I will tell you that not flushing the toilet will not make you a millionaire. At best it might save the average family $10-$15 a year (though even a dollar decrease on my water bill a month would make me happy). But it does save thousands of gallons a year of precious water. And that is enough for me.
To follow this you do not have to go hard-core. You could simply:
- flush every other time you go pee
- only flush during the day (some parents do this anyway to keep from waking kids)
So what do you think? Have you ever tried this? Do you do it currently? Would you think about doing it in the future?
