Save On Water In The Shower

Place a bucket, marked in gallon increments, under your shower head. Turn the shower on at the normal water pressure you use. Time how many seconds it takes to fill the bucket to the one gallon (3.8 liter) mark. If it takes less than 20 seconds to reach the one gallon mark, you could benefit from a low-flow shower head (And then use the water from the test bucket to water plants!)

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
