I use one of them filters that you fit to your faucet, otherwise I just boil it because it's got this horrid chlorine taste, especially recently. Whenever I go to my grandmothers house I drink her water straight from the tap, delicious well water. Whomever hasn't tasted well water, you don't know what your missing. I also make my own furniture and fix things. Mostly, if I need something that is made of metal or wood, I make it myself. I buy all of my clothes from thrift stores (Besides the undergarments, naturally), or make them myself.
