WFMW: Recycled Notes

If you have school-aged kids, you have paper. They bring papers home from school, sports practices and church. Announcements, reminders and information that is all yours do deal with. About 97% of this paper is stuff that will end up in the recycle bin at some point.

I keep these papers in an 'inbox' type of tray and let the kids draw on the back of it before it actually hits the fire place or the trash/recycle bin. I like to cut the colored papers up into sheets (cut the paper in quarters and cut those in half) for me and hubby to use. Some of them are kept by the pens in the kitchen and some are kept in the computer desk with a couple of pencils. We can jot down a number, message, website or post idea easily and the colors make them stand out in the sea of other papers.

We recycle papers from the printer as it prints on one side then we set it next to the printer so we can use it for the next thing we print.

I'm on a mission this year to buy less paper, because as you've noticed, we get a lot of it just streaming into the house. Great idea!

Have a Great Day!

I love paper! You can never have enough paper! Remember those note holders that you poke it through like a long nail?
