Shower with your husband!
If it's yellow, let it mellow...(except for morning pee)
Don't shower every day, or at least don't wash your hair every day. It really isn't necessary to overbathe.
We stopped watering our lawn. That cut our water bill in half. Everyone keeps telling me my grass will die, but it hasn't happened yet.
Our county water authority was handing out 5 minute egg timers you could put in your shower to time yourself. I discovered that I can actually take a shower in 4 minutes, with out feeling at all rushed (the water actually runs for 5 minutes because it takes a full minute for the water to get to a bearable temperature).
When I need to shave my legs/armpits, I plug the bathtub while I take a shower, shut the water off and use the water collected in the tub for rinsing the razor, etc. I used to just let the water run while I shaved. This one thing probably saved half of my shower water.
We have a front loading washing machine. If you can afford it, I highly recommend getting one. A front loading machine using 1/2 to 1/4 the amount of water that a top loading machine uses.
