Save £20 a year on your water bill

Over the last 4 years we have saved £20 each year on our water bill by implementing one small change and an initial one of cost of £30.

We installed a water butt.

We were so impressed that a couple of weeks ago we picked up another one from Aldi.  We use the water we collect to water the garden in watering cans, which is perfect if you are in an area that has a hose pipe ban.  We have three raised beds, plenty of pots and containers too and harvesting our rain water is a simple and easy way we can save money and make a difference to the environment.

We were in Lidl last week and they still have water butts in store, so I am planning to keep an eye on them and see if they get reduced in the sale so we can add another one.

  1. Hi Jen - how is this saving you money? Do you have a water meter?

    1. Sorry Hannah I should have made it clearer, yes we have a water meter and we try to grow our own vegetables. So this saves on water from the house to water them
