Water - Success!
At the end of last year we requested a water meter, our monthly payments went from over £60.00 per month to £41.00.
Well guess what we had £37.57 refund and they have reduced our monthly payment to £40.00 - so although only a reduction by £1.00 a month I am happy with the change and savings of over £20.00 a month.
We have not actually tried too hard, although I had stopped leaving the tap running whilst brushing my teeth and we have one of those bags in the cistern, and we do not spend too long in the shower, and I have a bath about once a month, run the dishwasher and washing machine with a full load (more difficult with the washing machine). We do not have a garden so we save water there and there is only the two of us.
We are going to try not to flush the loo every time we have a wee!
What savings do you make around the house?
