Speaking of showers, do you know that you can use hair conditioner instead of shaving cream? If you are a lady who shaves her legs and under arms in the shower you can save a lot of money just by buying a cheap bottle of conditioner (usually not much more than a buck) to shave with instead of expensive shaving creams or gels.
It leaves your legs and under arms smooth and silky.

'Go Green' Hint:
Have you ever blown cash to buy chemical fertilizer for your garden or your house plants? Of course you have. However, you can save yourself the cash, save yourself the chemicals and save a little fresh water, not to mention the perfect fertilizer, from being poured down the drain.
A lot of water that goes down the drain can be used to water plants. Water that you use to steam vegetables, cook potatoes, corn or boil eggs can be reused to water your plants. All of those nutrients leeched from your veggies go right back into the soil. The plants love it!
Just make sure there is no oil or salt in the water. Also, when you clean out your aquarium you can use that water to water your plants. Great for the soil.
