Use Both Sides of Calculator Tape

As a bookkeeper, I go through scads of calculator tape. Yes, I'm old fashioned and still like to see my input. I only rip the tape off at the end of the day and the next day I use the clean backside of yesterday's tape for today's use.


Rather than throwing out printed faxes and emails that I don't need anymore, I simply turn them over and use them as scratch paper. Saves me a bundle on buying pads of paper and I'm recycling at the same time.

Very smart and green! This is the kind of thing I used to do before a drunk driver left me almost totally blind. These days I can't read printed words, so I skip printing entirely whenever possible.
