I tried this due to my water being increasingly high these few months. And to my surprise this actually worked. Fill a plastic bottle or 2 with sand cover tightly & place them in your toilet tank. Place them away from the operating mechanism. DONT USE BRICKS they will damage your toilet. The sand bottles add weigh in the tank and "trick" it into thinking it's filled to the top. You will save with EVERY FLUSH.

I buy plastic water bottles in the 32 oz size and take one to work.
By the time I get off work I have 40 oz in (including my breakfast), and after exercising and dinner I end up with the rest of my water needs.
It's cheaper and don't fill up the land fills.
It is very important to drink enough water. The water will help flush out water retained by salt. It almost sounds counter-intuitive to drink more water to flush out water. What it does is thin down the lymph fluids (thickened by salt, etc) and help flush it out of your system.
I have found this method to work for saving money: get envelopes and label them with your bills you pay monthly (ie mortgage, light bill, water bill, etc.) and label one envelope Miscellaneous. Each month put the amount you owe on the bill plus $10 in the envelope. Pay the miscellaneous envelope $20. Once you pay all your bills, move the money from the other envelopes to the miscellaneous envelope and watch your money build up!
