Week 34: Water Use
I am coming up empty on quite a few things. All of the usual places to cut back, we already have. There's no cable, our cell phones are bare bones and our internet/phone is as cheap as it can go This leaves utilities. I don't believe our water consumption is out of control, but I'm sure there are ways to conserve. Water conservation is both green and good for my wallet (at least that's the plan).
This week I'll be reasearching ways to save water and see what strategies we can put in place to lower our water use. I think I'll also call our local water district and see what average use is in our area and see how the bill is calculated. I'm particularly interested in how the sewer rate is figured. I think the amount we pay for sewer seems excessive (we'll see).
