    If I have stained items that must be laundered, I fill the tub, put in the items, but don't turn it on, till I have a full load

    I keep buckets in the showers to catch the water while it is warming up, I do this in the sink as well. This water is used for laundry or watering the plants.

    I have very old bathtub/shower faucets, I keep a pail underneath to catch the water drips and I water my plants
