On another blog recently we were invited to share hacks that make our life easier (especially things that solve “small, nagging problems”). I thought I would share the tip that I wrote about.
I print a lot. And I mean a lot. While I type out my first draft of a manuscript, I edit on paper. So while I print two manuscript pages to a printed page, I still use about 150 pages.
Because my printer doesn’t print two-sided, I’ve started using the paper to make notepads. I love them!
I use a ruler to tear the A4 pages into quarters. I then stack and put craft glue along the cut (not torn) short edge. Clamp with bulldog clips. Once the glue dries, I have a notepad.
I use them all the time – in fact, the Barbarians asked for their own notepads. They use them when working on homework. Totally happy to make them their own notepads because it means they’ve stopped stealing mine!
Do you have any hints or tips that have helped make your life easier?
