Water saving idea: waiting for hot water?

Did you know how many liters of water we waste when we are just waiting for the water gets hot before washing your hands or taking a shower or even doing dishes?

I have a bucket in my bath tub and whenever I take a shower, turn on the water and put the shower head to it until hot water comes out so that I can save cold water.  Later, this cold water can be used for flushing toilet.  I found the cold water we can easily waste before shower is approximately 3-4 liters which is about the same amount the toilet flushes at a time.
