    I cut unprinted parts of copy paper into sizes usable for a couple of different purposes. If more than half the page is blank, I cut a 5.5 x 8.5 inch piece, punch holes in it to fit my planner, and print 50 percent gray writing lines on it. I usually round the outside corners using a hand-held corner trimmer. If the blank area is less than half of the page, I cut pieces 4.25 x a multiple of 1/2 inch, stack them by size, and apply padding compound to one side. The smallest is 2.5 x 4.25 inches. The largest is 5 x 4.25 inches. These scratch pads are added to Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes with other gifts to be sent by Samaritan's Purse to children somewhere around the world.

    Journaling can be a great stress reliever - and I don't need to read what I've written, so I scribble on the back of pages and then recycle
