Reuse Receipts as Note Paper

A lot of cash register receipts that you get are blank on the back. Save them, and use them for grocery lists, for listing the next movie that you want to watch, to write down something that you need to get uptown, or to write down a phone number. I save mine and turn them back side up and put them under a strong magnet on the fridge.


Now if I need a piece of paper to write down something or list something that I need, I just take one piece of cash register paper out from under the magnet, write down what I need, and put it in my purse. No more forgetting what I came uptown for.

I hate to discourage reuse of 'waste' paper, but if the receipt is (as many are) thermally printed, the paper is coated with BPA (bisphenol A), the notorious chemical that was in baby bottles not long ago and in some water bottles.

It's been said the doses, as you transfer the BPA from hand to kitchen tool or plate to your or your family's mouths, are far greater than those from plastic containers.So, if I get a receipt from a thermal printer, I put it in a baggie I have for that purpose, and wash my hands as soon after that as possible. (A good idea anyway, when picking up random germs from hundreds or thousands of others.) A mechanical printer doesn't have that problem at all, but such printers cost more, so are used less.
