Need to cut down on the amount of water you use?  Here are some simple ways to conserve water.  Every little bit helps!Is the state you live in experiencing a drought? Conserving water is good for the planet. Not everyone understands how much water gets thoughtlessly wasted. Fortunately, conserving water can be done in very simple ways. Use less water and you will end up saving money on your water bill.

4 Ways to Conserve Water

Skip the Refills
There are many restaurants that automatically serve customers a full glass of water (with ice) the moment they are seated. That’s fine for people who are intending to drink water with their meal. Those who want to order a different type of beverage don’t typically drink the glass of water. It gets poured down the drain and wasted.

You can conserve water by asking your server not to bring you any. Order your beverage of choice, and make it clear that you do not want an additional glass of water. If you plan on drinking water with your meal, then you need to pay attention to how often the server refills it. Ask for a half-glass refill, or tell the server to stop refilling it, when you are not going to drink anymore.

Chill the Glasses
We go through a lot of water when we make ice cubes. Instead of using water to make a beverage cold, consider chilling the glass instead. Put the glass into the freezer for a little while. Or, start using one of those special mugs that are made of plastic and that are designed to be placed in the freezer. A liquid that is in between layers of the plastic freezes and removes the need for ice cubes.

Don’t Wash Your Car
It can be really difficult for many people to skip the car wash! People tend to feel embarrassed if their car is dirty. Keep in mind that the typical car wash uses a whole lot of water that could be used in better ways. A clean car is not a necessity.

Clean your windows by using a window cleaner and some paper towels. Or, use the window washing tool at the gas station the next time you fill up the tank. Stay safe by making sure you can see out of your windows.

Water the Lawn in the Morning
The best time to water your lawn in early in the day between the hours of 6:00 and 8:00 in the morning. The temperature in the morning is typically the coolest and least windy time of day. This means that the water you apply is less likely to be lost to evaporation.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
