Starting My New Years Resolution's

After picking my jaw up off the floor from our last water bill I'm seriously considering investing in rain water barrels.  We have a shrub that really isn't doing much for the beautification of our yard, in fact it attracts large ants, it sits right below a gutter and would be a perfect spot for a rain barrel.

I find it so hard to believe, seeing as we live in such a rainy part of the country, our water bill is so high!  Yes, we have a garden that we water in the summer, but it's not being doused daily.  What happens with all of that rain from September to June?  I know there's a lot of effort (management of rivers, system maintenance, etc.) that goes into our sewer system that I'm not aware of but we've got to get this under control.

We've installed the low-flow shower heads and make sure we don't have leaky faucets or pipes.  I believe the next step is rain harvesting. Sounds like a great option to me. This idea will be on my New Year's Resolution list.
