    This is such a good idea! Honestly, I would never have thought to repurpose all of those flyers, since I already recycle them - but this is even better.

      The glossy ones are just great for Color contrast n I'm always looking out for the letter O.. I have also shaped them into pencil holders with empty tin containers n toilet rolls. Pls see my comments below of the owl family I have crafted..

    I shred all paper and use it for my worms and compost.

    When a postage paid envelope comes with any junk mail, I put everything in the postage paid envelope, write on some of it saying I don't want this take me off your mailing list and send it back. After a couple times doing this they quit sending me the junk mail.
