Before my husband passed away, he rigged up an upside down flower pot....a large funnell....a length of rubber hose..to a length of pvs pipe to capture the condensation from our air conditioner. The idea started out to keep water off my front porch when the a/c dripped but soon he realized he could collect lots of water for his many plants. Jessie could move the pipe to wherever he wanted to fill a bucket. We saved a lot on his watering, which helped offset the cost of the a/c being on. I also use a dishpan inside my kitchen sink to do what little handwashing I do then can throw the water onto plants or trees, I use the shower water bucket as mentioned above, for a flush or two saving water that way. I let the five gallon bucket stay beside me while I shower making the water do two jobs.
