I just discovered that our local food bank accepts magazines. I'm pleased to have found a second home for my 3 years + supply that I couldn't bring myself to recycle. Still so readable!
For awhile my Mom was saving her shower warm-up water to flush her toilet. It was as simple as putting a bucket in the tub, and it only was really enough for 1-2 toilet flushes a day. She got her water bill from that month and it was fully HALF of the normal, even with 2 extra people in the house for that week Booker and I were visiting. Dang! Gonna get me a bucket.
