uses for newspaper
My father-in-law got my husband a subscription to the newspaper for his birthday. We haven't had a printed newspaper around here for years, but I'm loving it!
Since paper towels are hard to come by, we have started filling a basket with rectangles cut from the paper. It works pretty well for small spills. I'm thinking that keeping the basket filled will be a good job for my granddaughter.
I have used the newspaper to make several sewing patterns. The sheets are large, so it's working pretty well.
I think I can make little paper pots for seed starting, as well.
I know many may not have the luxury of all of this paper, but perhaps your town is still sending out the free, little local paper. It may prove to be handy.
If anyone has other uses for newspaper, please pass them along.
