Scrap Printer Paper Instead of Note Paper

Reuse scrap computer paper by tearing into quarters for note paper. Use the unprinted side for notes, shopping lists etc. Once you no longer need the note paper, shred it and add to your composter to make compost for your garden.

I've been doing this for about three years now. Price of commercial sticky notes is outrageous. Many advertisements arriving in mailed envelopes have blank reverse sides too. If one really gets serious about recycling, some of the envelopes can be turned into note paper. I use one of those cheapo envelope 'slicer-openers'. They're generally free and last forever. Way easier to use than scissors.

I custom-built a cardboard box to hold them. A rubber band stretched around one end serves to keep them together -- and allows you to pull each page out without disturbing the others in the pile.
