Well, I completely failed yesterday's challenge of not using water from the tap. Thinking about the toilet was as far as I got. I put a plastic quart-sized milk jug filled with rocks and dirt into the back of the toilet so that it required less water. Does anyone have any ideas of things to put in the back of a toilet to conserve water? My toilet still requires about a gallon of water to refill it! My husband said if we really couldn't use water inside our home we would build sometime of "bathroom" in the garden. More like a tarp being held up by something. And we would fertilize the garden. Yuck!
Well here is today's challenge: cook everything from scratch. This is more my style. I think I can do this one. I've already made oatmeal. I just put oats, water, powdered milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and raisins in a bowl, and stick it in the microwave.
