Time Your Showers

Posted on June 25, 2007 by Allie

I always intend to take a quick shower, but the water is nice and warm, I’m still sleepy, and I just zone out.

The last time we went camping, the campground had coin operated showers. Five minutes for fifty cents. It kept me on track, and I realized that five minutes is a decent amount of time for a shower. Obviously, I’m not about to go coin-op at home, but I am going to start timing my showers.

Use a kitchen timer set to five minutes to keep yourself on track. You’ll save water and energy, and a little money on your utility bills.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
