No. Why would I do that? Almost all of ours are direct debit so we don't have many paper bills. All bills get filed away for reference and are kept for a few years. Paper bills have personal information on them so I wouldn't use them for anything else. I have oodles of note pads so no need.
Everything us shredded in my household. Usual bills are kept tor a number of years before shredding. Supermarket dockets are shredded after checking the items were rung up correctly before leaving the store as nothing with personal information is ever binned, always shredded.
Try to. Can anyone remember when computers were going to create paperless offices etc. I left work in an office, in a hospital in 2012 and at that stage the paperwork had sat least doubled. And the amount of checking details had doubled too because people entering data onto those computers were careless.
Yes, fran, I do remember!
My workplace went onto computer in Jan'74.
We were told 'less paper' now needed! Hah! Paperwork definitely doubled, if not tripled!
Oh! The 'joy' of computers'...............NOT!
Yes, I use the backs of envelopes to write shopping lists on or notes when I'm on the phone or if I need to leave myself a note for the morning or even a 'to do' list.
I will use the back of a bill page that's blank if there is no important information on the front, otherwise it gets filed with the bill.
I also write on the back of envelopes, all the time. MY father (who passed away in '77) used to put a pen line across the pages he'd finished with, so we'd know which pieces of paper we were allowed to draw on or write on the other side of!
