Shave a minute off shower time

Why? The average American spends about 8 minutes taking a shower roughly once a day. Reducing average shower time by 1 minute can result in a 13% decrease in shower water use, which reduces the money you spend on water heating.
Step by Step:
  1. Time yourself and others. See how long you and your fellow household members take to shower and compare your shower times to the national average. Use a waterproof timer in the shower or a kitchen timer out of the shower.
  2. Set a goal for showering a bit faster.

Added benefits: In addition to saving money on energy, you'll also save on water costs.
