TMR Frugal Living Tip #89

conservewaterwhilebathingToday's thrifty living tip is to bathe the kids together or if they are too old, then bathe them back to back unless they are very dirty. If they are that dirty, then I might think about rinsing them off before bathing them. As a child, I remember taking a bathe with my brother until I was about three or four. My mom did it to save time and money.

Another way to save money on water and conserve water is only fill the tub partially. I never fill mine more than half and sometimes less. We are all taking showers now with a low flow shower head so I can turn it off while soaping up.

One more tip to conserve money even while showering might be to take a shower with your significant other. I know it sounds a little risque for a family orientated blog, but I'm just merely pointing out the fact that it does conserve water plus puts more money in your wallet instead of going down the drain. I hope these tips help you to find ways to conserve water plus time and money.

My kids are too old to bathe together but they do take showers. I conserve water by skipping showers on some days when I am not going out in public :).

My husband and I have a tiny shower in our master bathroom now, but I would love to have a big shower someday that would allow for showering together regularly. It can definitely save water (and is pretty fun!).

I admit I love bathtubs, hot too, but I do not fill it up very full. Enjoyed the blog.
