  1. PS to #1 I learned, when my now 23 year old was little and using lots of craft glue and/or glitter. Old telephone books are GREAT; when project is done just tear out the used pages and you are ready for the next project 🙂

  2. I love wrapping presents with newspaper! They just look so cool!

  3. I put a few newspapers in the bottom of the litterboxes then top with scoopable litter. I find that all my cats pee in the corner, and scoopable isn’t *that* great at becoming solid when wet. The newspaper soaks up the liquid into the very bottom of the litterbox, keeping the litter loose & clean, PLUS it makes it a lot easier when I want to clean the box itself, the litter dries to the paper, not the box itself!
