Tips for living with hard water

What simple, cheap things can we do to lessen the damaging effects of hard water on our fixtures and appliances? (Apart from installing a water softener which is not cheap or easy for our living situation.)

We are currently renovating our flat, starting with the ensuite bathroom, which has a shower. We live in London, which has notoriously hard water. Our other main bathroom (not yet renovated) has disgusting lime scale building up in the toilet rim and sink tap spout. I really want to avoid this fate for our lovely new loo.
What simple things can we do on a per use, daily, or weekly basis to keep the limescale at bay?
Answers do not have to be limited to the bathroom. For example we got a water filter jug and we only fill the kettle up from water out of this jug, which has kept the kettle in great condition.
