water waste waiting for hot water

The water heater is located on the far side of the house from the master bedroom. This causes an appreciable waste of water while waiting for heated water to reach the sink, shower. I think Rich T. had a "spot" several years ago about a retro fit that would reduce the waste of water. That or any "new" ideas is appreciated.

Howdy consider installing a mini heater in the vanity at the sink. Is the pipe insulated to the sink from the water heater. Slip on foam pipe insulation works well and costs little.
