Cash in on Recycling DepositsThis seems obvious, but it's still a good tip. Here is California we are charged a surcharge when we buy soda.

Paper TipUse the opposite side of paper in your printer instead of wasting it. Many times when I initially put in a new ink cartridge it takes a few sheets before it comes out clear.
