    I have designated a notebook for my financials and have been logging payments, withdrawals, and deposits for each day. I also have been taking short showers. A couple of times I have left the water on while brushing my teeth, but then I remember this challenge and turn it off as soon as I remember. It only stays on for a couple seconds so I'm still saving a lot of water.

    This morning I took a shower that was less than 5 minutes long. It was short mostly because I was late for class but I also had this challenge in mind. Last night I went to a movie and wrote down the expenses which was for the second of my three challenges. For my third, I wet my toothbrush and didn't turn it back on until I was completely done brushing.

      I use a little 5-minute stick on timer I got from the Portland Water Bureau.  Really helps keep me moving along rather than spacing out and wasting water first thing in the morning!

    I looked through all the challenges and was very happy with the variety and creativity of the challenges. I selected 3 that I thought I could commit do while still making a positive impact. I also selected several that I am already doing.
