Making Use Of Junk Mail


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I make use of the envelopes from junk mail in two ways. I use one side for making a list of meal plans for the week. The other side is for the grocery list, based on the meal plans (& food sales). I put the coupons inside the envelope and head off to the store.

    I also do the same thing.

    I do the same thing. I also use the envelopes they enclose because they can be glued shut. If I need to leave a note for someone, I put the note in that envelope and write on it to draw their attention to it.
When done with my junk mail, I shred it and compost it.

    I also use the envelopes or back of papers to write my shopping list or just jotting reminders to myself what I have to do. emoticon
