Even though I do much of my bill-paying and correspondence online, some companies continue to send me statements with envelopes to pay my bill.
So today’s cheap trick: Use those envelopes!Instead of just recycling the envelopes, clip them to your fridge and write your grocery list on the outside. Then when you’re ready to go, just slip the coupons for your shopping trip into the envelope and head to the store.
Those extra envelopes can also be used to send lunch money to school with your kids, send a friend a note, or to save Box Tops. Just remember that if you do use the envelopes to mail letters, that you cover up any identifying addresses and bar codes or your envelope may not make it to the right location.
Now it’s your turn: What do you use those extra envelopes for?
