Secrets of Success

Save Paper



I save all printer sized paper that is blank on the back. When I go to print out recipes or some other informal piece that only I will see, I put these in my printer's paper tray and print . Saves lots of paper and hopefully trees.

    A few more suggestions :
    A: Evaluate if you even need to print out the sheets to begin with. Do you really need a hard copy? Is it for future reference? Can you make a PDF and file on your harddrive and/or flashdrive for backup?
    B: Get a binder clamp and make your own note pads - Cut the one-sided paper in half and bind together sheets of 20+. Makes easy to grab and use sheets pads.
    C: Print double sided if your printer allows. Reduce the # of pages from the start. - by MATTRIXMSP
  • I just started doing this and I'm so glad I did. - by SHAKITANWM
  • I do the same thing. Actually, I save all paper with a blank back and just remove confidencial information on the other side for my students to use as scratch paper for math, etc... I even reuse paper for my lesson plans. Anything I can do to save a tree!!!! - by UPONATIME
  • I do this at work everyday. I can not stand to see the blank sheet of a sheet of paper go to waste. emoticon - by RUTGERSM0M
