Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - Things to Use Again

If you have read my post few days ago - Back to being Minimalist, you have seen of my things that I've been using the Three R's to help the environment.  When I was young, I really don't throw all my papers and boxes because I know I could still use them.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

I don't have a cork board and I was even planning to buy a cork board or a white board but I don't want to waste money.  Instead of buying, I realized I had a drawing board that I used when I was in high school during drafting classes.

Memo/Reminder Board

I have lots of scratch papers from receipts and photocopied materials.  I use the back portion of the paper to write and list all the memos and reminders.  Instead of buying sticky notes that are very expensive, I use masking tape to stick the notes on my memo board.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Paper Dispenser
I enjoyed making this paper dispenser.  It seems like a branded paper dispenser from MSI.  Actually, it's a box from a HDD External Hard Disk I've bought in CD-R King.

My pink portable hard disk, so cute! :)
I started to use these recycled notebooks during my first year - second semester in college.  I have lots of bond papers in high school and in college from photocopied materials.  The back portion is still good to write so I decided to recycle the papers and let my creativity work for it.  I use water colors, latex and textile paints to design the cover.  You can even use colorful magazines.
