    I turn off the water to my barely used 2nd bathroom.

    During water shortage months, I collect my washer rinse water to use outdoors to water flowering plants (not veggies).

    In the summer, I disconnect one sink (I have a double kitchen sink) and put a 5 gal bucket under it. Now I can use 1 sink for recyclable water and the other for water that needs to go down the drain. The water gathered is used to water plants and saturate my compost pile.

    I ordered "flow restrictors" for all my faucets and showers. Saves a bunch!

    I do home canning. I reuse the water in the canner after it has cooled down to water plants, flush toilets, etc.
