Reducing Shower Time

That's the first on my list - reducing shower time.

In the challenge, it says "Did you know that the average shower length is 8 minutes? By reducing that to 5 minutes, you can reduce the amount of water you use by nearly one-third, or roughly 10 gallons per day. Commit to decreasing your regular shower time to 5 minutes -- and take occasional baths, which uses less water. "

Okay - I am not a bath person, so that's out. But, I can take less than a 5 minute shower. Definately do-able. But what happens if I take two a day, once in the morning, once after the gym? I guess that means a 4 minute shower in the morning and a quick rinse in the evening. That works for me.

I can check that one off. Next, I will time my husband's shower and see how he does!
