Reusing bath water is nothing new--some families use it for plants, others to flush the toilet. Lost grey water can truly be money down the drain!
Here's a tip that will make your bathwater recycling a little easier. Use a container with a straight side--not a round bucket. I don't know why it took me so long to realize that the flatter I could lay the container against bottom of the tub, the quicker it would fill up. The larger the container, the fewer trips it takes to reuse all that water. This oval bathroom trash can scoops enough water for my outdoor plants each evening.
With all the dirt my kids bring in, it's nice to send a little back to nature every night!
