Do you re-use paper/bills that you get and write on the other side, or do you throw it all out?

Most bills are filed. Other stuff is usually unusable so it gets shredded for recycling.

Yes I use those that are only printed on one side but have so many I will never use them all!

I write notes to myself, and shopping lists and I seem to get so many even though I file many of my bills.

I seem to use a lot to write reminders or things to do at the shop where I volunteer three times a week.

When we had Guinea pigs, we shredded all the paper and used it as bedding.
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.
I'm just about ready to shred up my bills. I file bills for five years.
Not Bills,per se,but other stuff which comes through the mail,often only uses half a page,so I cut off the blank portions,and I use these all the time!!!
Yes, any piece of blank paper gets used for scribble paper.
I recycle as much as possible.
Personal gets shredded.
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.
Only to take a quick note.
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!

All mine go in a drawer for 6 months, then they get torn up...and thrown out.
One day! I have to get a shredder for sure!
I often use the reverse side 2 write 2 do lists
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 file them for seven years, then shred and recycle. Most bills in the last few years have been electronic, and I don't print those out, just store them soft copy.
No, I would like to but can't since most of them are printed on both sides
Most of the time. I always reuse the envelopes we receive mail in. Reuse. Reuse. Reuse.

Yes, I'm always writing notes on the backs of my recites that are blank of cause. Or I'll write out a recipe from online, then recycle it, after I've made the recipe.

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!
