Reuse paper roll

by Brankica

After using a roll of toilet paper or paper towels, you can use it to store electrical wires to keep them from getting tangled and in your way.

That is what I did for my computer cables because there were so many. Now they are all in one place.

You can also decorate that cardboard roll with some nice looking paper. Match the color with the room walls and it will look great.

Reusing Junk Mail as Scrap Paper

by Tracey
(Hermanus)

Have you noticed how many junk mail fliers and insurance letters etc. are written on one side only?

I keep mine for my kids to use as drawing paper, or to write my shopping lists on. It sure saves on using up decent paper!!

Editor's Note:
A very creative solution!
Another idea is to keep the envelopes that are meant for your return orders, etc. to use for office storage - keep coupons, receipts, etc.
