Save Water and Money with a Plastic Jug

Save water and put a little extra money in your wallet at the same time.

Here’s a simple way to save money on your water bill: start with a plastic gallon jug–like the ones that you already buy filled with spring water or distilled water. Instead of throwing away the empty jug, fill the jug with sand (or tap water) to give it some weight, and then tuck it into your toilet tank. Yes, you read that right: put it under the lid.

You’ll save water because it will take less water to fill up the tank every time you flush.
