Green Tip of the Day – Envelopes

What to do with all those envelopes you get with your bills, but don’t use because you pay your bills online? Of course, the greenest way to reduce your envelope consumption is to have your bills delivered via email, but that doesn’t work for everyone.  The next most obvious answer is to recycle them.  However, there is a way to get one last use out of them before they go into the recycle bin.  Use them for shopping lists and put any coupons you have for those items on your list in the envelope.  This helps keep you organized, stick to your list and save some money because you remembered the coupons.  Once you get back from shopping – don’t forget to toss that envelope into the recycling bin!
