We use lot of water every day, but one way that we can save some is by using rain water to water our yards and gardens. It is pretty simple to build a rain barrel and they don't take up too much space. They can easily be placed in a corner of your yard, or even under the deck. There are many different designs and most use household items. When you want to use the water, you just dump it out out or use a hose. If you live in a place that is really wet place where it frequently rains, you can build a bigger system or a smaller one if it is a dry place. This is just one idea to save energy.
