Right on susan! I totally agree with you. My thrifty savings idea was to install a grey water storage collection unit. The water from my shower and washing machine goes to a collection holding tank and from there pumped out by way of a sump pump and garden hose to water my flowers and lawn. I do not use this water on root vegtables of course but otherwise it is just fine. In the winter when we have rain I have also devised a shut off system for the collection unit.
