Recycle Envelopes As Shopping Lists

I don't get junk postal mail anymore but I do receive bills that always have return payment envelopes. I pay my bills by phone or online now and just hate the idea of throwing those envelopes away. I have started using them as shopping lists and place the appropriate coupons inside. Not only is the envelope being used for something but I also don't forget to hand over the coupons at the point of sale anymore.


In case you're wondering why I don't just get my statements online, well, I believe in having a paper trail to be on the safe side. Being on a fixed disability income, I have to be careful about using up printing paper and ink. Oh, and there's always the possibility of losing saved data on computers and backup disks too ;-)

This is great, I actually do this myself but it's usually by accident because I rarely have paper pads around the house these days. :)

I love this idea. I have been using paper clips to hold my coupons to my list and they come off quite often while I'm moving my list from hand to hand or hand to cart while I'm selecting my groceries or marking off items on my list.
