    We save all our newspaper and take it to the local thrift shop so they can use it for wrapping breakable items. After we read our magazines we sell them to a bookstore. We use rags for cleaning instead of paper towels and cloth napkins for nearly all meals.

    I used beautiful pictures of landscapes,flowers,animals (tons of beautiful things) that i cut out of magazines,and calendars that would be thrown away anyway, made collages glued on to cardboard or poster board.Can be given as a wonderful way to cheer ones in hospitals,nursing homes.It can be a very nice thing for them to look at each day.And large enough for them to be able to see too.

    I like to use old papers to make planting pots for seedlings to transplant into my garden.

    I use newspaper to cover my garden wherever I want to discourage weeds, and then I cover it with mulch. It disintegrated by the end of the season, and I can turn it over to further add the rest into the soil.
