In addition to finding great deals on ink, I have often been asked how to snatch up great deals on paper. I personally stock up on paper when rebates/rewards are offered on reams of paper at the local office supply store (for example, you can snag 500 sheets of paper over at Office Depot this week for only $1 after mail-in savings card). However, I just received this email from reader, Lisa, which offers up another great (and FREE) method for snagging paper. Check it out below…
I don’t know if this idea has been published before, but I have come up with a creative way to use paper for couponing. My daughter is in 1st grade and my son is in preschool. They come home with book bags full of paper from school. So I started flipping them over and using the back side and it works like a charm. I have never had a problem. I do not use papers with a grade and I cut their names off since coupons rarely use a full sheet. I feel like I am recycling what used to go in the trash and not wasting a blank sheet on coupons that sometimes only take up a 1/4 of a sheet. My daughter loves it too, because when she shows me the papers, she says ok mom, you can have this sheet, this sheet, this sheet for coupons and stacks them up. She loves recycling too!!
What a great way to keep a few bucks in your pocket and to help the environment! Do you have any creative suggestions for snagging paper to print all those coupons for free or almost free? If so, please share your ideas with us below!
