Do you ever feel like you waste ALOT of water?

Well today I did I went jogging came home SHOWERED got lunch ready for dh bc he has to work tonight when he left me and my 2 kids went out into the pool but as I went out there I noticed the patio doors needed to be WASHED so I did that then I had to WASH the patio floor then I FILLED the kiddie pool for our dogs I SPRAYED them a little too. Then when we were almost coming inside to really relax and have dinner I told the kids instead of going inside to bathe I suggested to bathe them outside with the water hose they were for it. Wow I must have used up gallons and gallons of water it is not everyday I do this. Oh then I came in and tok a shower :/
Thanks Ladies!!!

  • Yeah, I think about it once and awhile but I don't think I am too crazy with water.

  • I use tons of water in the summer. In the winter were pretty good about it, but summer time were out there all day and most of the time using water. I figure it balances out.

  • I do not waste water. I got into alot of good water habits. I'm conscious of my water usage for sure. I have watched so many tv shows/docum where people need water so badly and use filthy contaminated water that....I know I'm blessed to have clean water and I don't just waste it. I turn of water while I soap up in shower, I turn it off while I brush my teeth and I have my girls in the same habits. and lots of other good water habits. I watch what my washer is set on for loads. Mini cycle for small loads etc etc.. I don't like wasting water that is so precious to others who do not have it.

  • No . Where I live there is lots of water , one thing there is no shortage of ! Not that i am wasteful but I don't have feelings of guilt about what we use . I am careful with electricity , doing laundry in cold water and drying it outside when the weather is suitable .

  • Nope, I don't feel as if I am wasting water. We are extremely conservative with our water consumption.
