Using Shredded Paper to Fill Flower Pot

I have some rather large flower pots and was wondering if I could fill them part way with shredded paper.

I never have but it looks like some do not recommended it as paper provides not much nutrition.

You can. It will decompose.

You can use the plastic pots the plants came in. Put them upside down. I use small sticks, shredded paper, or the foam peanuts that come in packages.

Lots of good suggestions but one thing for sure - if you use any type of styrofoam/peanuts please put them in pantyhose or something similar that you can close up/seal so they will not be a mess when time comes to change the plant or soil.

Here is an excellent link that has several suggestions that might be what you are looking for.
