A Leaky Faucet Can Save You Money

faucetI noticed a drip coming out of the base of my kitchen sink faucet. It was only a few drops, so I procrastinated. Over time it grew more and more. I thought: “it’s just a few drops, it can’t be too bad.”

Finally I went out to the store to get a new faucet. When I saw the prices I blanched, and put it off some more. But finally, my conscience got to me and I bit the bullet and got the new faucet.

My next water bill was 1/3 what it had been, saving more in that month than what I had paid for the new faucet…

“Just a few drops” can add up a lot!
