I have a lot of used paper. How can I reuse this paper?
By Aveneg from Iloilo, Philippines
Run it through a paper shredder and use it for packing things to ship.
Depends on type of "paper" If letter type paper not printed on both sides, reuse in your printer for "at home" items you print off. Let children draw/color on; Use to make more paper - for crafting, etc. Look up making paper, fun and exciting craft! If newspaper (or even typing paper) Use in the kitchen for scraps, oily utensils, etc. Use in your flower beds, shredded of course. Use under crafting to catch glue, scraps, etc. Use to wipe dry your windows after washing with JUST water. Just think out of the box and have fun!
Insulate the walls of a house. Make inexpensive throw away sandles. Make paper mache' items. Use as mulch in the garden to keep weeds down. Patch a hole in a wall. Make paper chains to decorate with.
I use all scrap paper, such as envelopes, blank part of letters etc. as scratch paper. I cut them into little pieces and secure with a paper clip. I have all around the house to jot down quick little notes, make list, etc.
If it's printer paper, I use it to make copies of recepits and orders that I do on-line. I just make an X on the used side.
