You know how when you print a coupon and there is 2″ in length for a coupon and teh rest of the page is an ad or a blank paper. Cut straight across the bottom of your coupon. Your page should still be 8.5″ across. If you have a blank sheet put it back inside your printer for another printing round. If you have an ad, put the paper in (for my printer its sunny-side-up) so that when you print another coupon it will print on the clean side. Voila. More use out of your paper. 🙂 the children have plenty of scraps to color on.

Note: sometimes the coupons are in the middle of the page or the advertisement is first and then the coupon. This method will not work on those. You will loose your printed coupon that way. 🙂
