You probably receive hundreds of return address labels in the mail. (I had enough to wallpaper a large room.) While watching TV, I cut my name and address off the labels and then give the remaining images to children in my family or leave them in the break room at work for others to take home. I keep ones I think won't interest them, but pass on images of flags, animals, flowers, and other colorful designs to the kids.

Don't buy envelopes, use the ones you get in the mail
Instead of buying envelopes, I use the ones that I get in junk mail and bills (I pay online, so I don't need the envelopes). I put the address labels I get from companies who want me to buy stuff or donate money over the return address. If there's a clear window or address printed in the "mail to" area of the envelope, I cover it with a piece of paper taped or glued in place and put the correct address on it.
I use address labels to label portion sized containers with nutritional information. 17
I package portion size containers of food, like left over Turkey from Christmas. Then in the computer I copy (Ctrl + C) the nutritional information from the data base. Then I open an address label template in Word and paste (Ctrl + P) the information into as many labels as I need.
