I REUSE MY USED PRINTER PAPER BY USING THE CLEAN BACKSIDE OF THE PAPER, ESPECIALLY FOR COPYING RECIPIES, WHICH I COPY A LOT. (03/28/2006)
Hi Bobbie, Besides using the used Printer paper, I keep the junk mail sheets that are not printed on both sides. I use them for grocery lists, to to lists & my schedules for each day of the week. Just listing Mon. thru Fri. when I have Drs. appt. or classes or perm day &time. Every little bit helps.
My Mum did this too when we were kids. Juanita from Chicago, Il. (03/28/2006)
I save those papers and give to my gradchildren to color on....they love it and it saves me a lot on new paper and coloring books. (03/29/2006)
The elementary school sends home many papers, most of which must be kept for about a week, then get recycled. We use those papers as scrap paper, for grocery lists, notes to each other... (03/29/2006)
I use the junk mailers that have a blank side for note paper, along with papers from the printer as well. Recently for my birthday, a pal gave me a decorative cube of note papers for my kitchen. I didn't have the heart to tell her that my kitchen cube was already stashed with "homemade" papers & that I have a never ending stash from junk mail, etc. Just to think that some people actually buy paper notepads, etc.!
