Works for Me Wednesday: Take Paper Home from the Office. Really.
If your children are like mine, you know that they go through paper like...um...well, nevermind. Anywho, they use a lot. In a previous post, I suggested an easy way for those work-out-of-the-home-moms to obtain a paper stash while recycling at the same time: take home all that "used" paper from the office.
Fortunately, my department at work does not simply toss all those non-confidential rough drafts, "oops" and "I thought you were going to change the toner!"-type mistakes. We take the "used" paper home, flip it over, and feed it through our home printers or let our kids use it as scrap paper. We even take some to our daycare provider. I say, 50% of that paper isn't used, baby!
