One tiny mistake and it's off to the trash!

Are you the type of person who is so wary of cleanliness of output? For instance, if you're writing down something and you wrote the wrong letter or if you wrote F instead of p, do you immediately crumple the paper and throw it to the trash? Or do you take out your nifty correction marker?

Normally, I would throw the paper away. I generally prefer to type anything important because I cannot stand to give anyone a piece of paper with white out all over it. Also, I use recycled paper, so white out looks really bad on my grey paper.

Where do you buy recycled lined paper? I would think that would be so much easier to read your writing on.

Hi lacurandera! Kudos to you for using recycled paper! Where do you buy your stock? How long have you been using recycled paper? I think it's very noble of you to use such supplies...I wish I could find reasonably priced recycled paper here in our area so that I can also start doing my share in preserving trees.

I'm too lazy to do that! I just scribble or put a line through the word and continue writing as if nothing happened.

hi k1tten, thank you for responding to this thread. Sometimes I'm too lazy as well. But too lazy in the sense that I would rather get a new sheet of paper and rewrite the whole damn thing instead of getting correction fluid hehehe

It depends where I am. At work, I use correction tape. For school stuff that I still write by hand, I just cross stuff out. At home I don't generally write by hand, I only type. So then I just press the backspace key.
