Reusing Your Printer Paper
I don’t know about you, but even with things like paperless billing I have a lot of extra paper around my office. For a while I have been tossing the paper in the recycling bin or running it through the printer again on the backsides, but then I had a great idea. I am always looking for scratch pads, to write phone messages, shopping lists, to-do lists, stuff like that. What if I could find a way to reuse that paper . . .
Here’s what I do now. I take about 10 sheets of the used printer paper—as long as there is nothing important or confidential on it—cut it in half, and clip it together with a binder clip. Presto: a notepad! Now, the pad is nothing fancy, and I can’t really use it when I have to mail out a note to someone. But I no longer need to fumble around for a notepad. I have these pads all over the house now, by every phone, at my desk, anywhere I think I need some paper handy. Best of all, I am reusing paper that would otherwise end up in a garbage dump.
