Tuesday Tip

I am starting a new feature called the "Tuesday Tip." Each Tuesday, I plan to post a quick, "painless" moneysaving tip that can be easily implemented in your life. I hope you enjoy, and if you have any ideas for future tips please let me know!

Without further ado, then, today's tip:

Use your scrap paper. I print a ton of internet coupons, and most of them print only one to a page. I save the other two-thirds of the paper and put it in my daughter's drawing box to color on. If you don't have a toddler that likes coloring, you can also cut the paper into squares and use for quick notes and lists.

If I print something that uses a full page but that I don't plan to save, like MapQuest directions, I often save it to run back through the printer on the other side.

You might not save hundreds of dollars doing this, but if you buy one fewer package of printer paper or a couple fewer coloring pads per year, that's $5 or $10 dollars in your pocket! :-D
