My Frugal Frugal Ways


The Navy Shower

Next time you take a shower, plug the bathtub.  My, what a lot of water we waste staying clean.  The next day, do the same thing but take a navy shower.  For those who don’t know, that’s when you only run the water to wet hair and rinse off.

A four minute shower uses about ten gallons of water.   A Navy shower uses about 3.  That’s a lot of water if you do it on a daily basis.  Not only do you save water, but you save the electricity it takes to heat that extra seven gallons of water.  And it’s so much better for the environment.
