Using Envelopes For Note Pads


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Instead of buying note pads for things like grocery lists I save the envelopes I receive in the mail and use the backs to jot things down. I pay most of my bills on line so I get two envelopes out of each mailing ... the one the bill came in and the on for paying the bill.

    I use them as book marks! Or make your grocery list on the envelope and put your coupons inside. ready to go! emoticon

    I do that all the time. Also, those "blow in" cards in magazines--the printed ones are often connected to blank ones, so I tear out the blank ones for scratch paper.

    I've done that as well. Or they are scratch pieces of paper.
