It helps if you grill your food rather than cooking it in pots and pans. Though of course it's hard to grill soup…

We do find that we use more water washing dishes than showering. It was a surprise. Still find the paper plates help with the washing. Lots get cooked in the frying pan and it wipes clean easily. The silverware can wait until the nightly wash up and that helps. Learning to do with what you have is interesting. Understand there are connections and pumps that move sewer water through a garden hose. Seems like that would help with gray water if on a site with limited utilities. Pat

Big difference for us was being able to monitor exactly what was left and what was filling up. Before we switched over from Micropulse to See level we were always guessing and thought we could only go 3 or 4 days. But when we could see what was happening we found we could stay out for almost 2 weeks as long as we had fresh water to top up the tank in our 25.
