For a few dollars, you can unscrew a faucet, replace washers and re-wrap threaded screws with teflon tape and save 'buckets' of money! If you do not know how to fix a leaking faucet, ask a friend or family member and trade them a skill of yours in payment.
Also on a power strip are all the chargers for the phone, I devices and tablets. They are in one place and that strip gets turned on when devices are charging and off when they are not. These charger cords plugged in and leaching electricity are called vampires or pirates. They are draining your wallet. Turn them off! Save your money for things you can use.
