This Sparked Me!

We bought a 50 gallon plastic drum for $10 and cut a large hole in the top. I covered the top with screen and placed the drum under a downspout near the edge of our house. This way I catch rainwater and water my plants. emoticon Plants grow more and you keep your water usage down!

    We collect rain water too. It has really helped out.

    It's also excellent for shampooing the hair.
