I have rolls of paper the size of toilet paper that came from a papermill. They cut the ends to true them up, the excess, well I asked they gave me 10 rolls for our favorite price of free.

An inspiring hippy writes an application to a hippy club:
“I am a real hippy, i never brush my teeth, never take shower, never wash my clothes. And the letter you are reading is written on a piece of toilet paper I used in the bathroom before that”

He got a response shortly.
“ you are a mommy boy not a hippy. Real hippies never use toilet paper”.

I recycle printer paper. It seems we are forever printing frivolous stuff. Instead of throwing it in the trash can, I tear ‘em in half and add them to a clip board.

Used envelopes, and the reply envelopes that come with my financial statements are my favorites other than loose scraps and cut-offs.. Conveniently sized, easy to fold and stuff into a pocket, and if things get complicated I can undo the seams and work on the back.
