QUESTION: Where can I get scrap paper (for free)?
Also, where is the cheapest place to buy looseleaves (the kind of paper with lines one it and hole-punched)? I once bought a pack of 400 for 9 cent but never seen anything close since then.

  1. I literally just keep any handouts i get and use that as scrap paper. i never throw out or even recycle paper that's normal sized unless there's no real space for me to write on it. i do math so i churn through a ton of scrap paper but i have yet to run out of scrap paper since i started doing this three years ago. some of my friends keep notepads or notebooks for scrap work and it looks really neat (and it's fun to read through at the end) but personally i just use scrap paper because hey, why waste paper.

  2. Where the hell can you get 400 ruled sheets for 9 cents?

    Haven't looked very hard but I've been getting mine at Staples. The Staples branded pack of 400 can go as low as $1. If you like your paper, try the thicker sheets by Mead (or Five Star?) which go for $3-$4 per 200 sheets but they're so sexy to write on.

  3. You can get free scrap paper if you ask at the desk at any of the libraries!

  4. I know this isn't relevant for right now but before school starts in September, bundles of lined paper usually go for 15 cents at Staples and Wal-mart. I usually just stock up then.

  5. The PAS printing room on the 3rd floor has a recycling box full of scrap paper
