I almost forgot RAIN Barrels - where you collect the rain and use it to water your garden (or other non-drinking uses). This is extra exciting for me, because our little house has the hose-hookup out front and of course, my new garden is in back. I really don't see myself dragging the hose around the house every day to water. So, this is a good solution for me. Then, I even saved myself $30 or more dollars when I found this deal
This is not a picture of the rain barrel I'm planning to get
but I did steal it from Cary's blog.
I'm a big fan of Cary!
