I do this as much as possible. It's so nice to be able to put a piece of paper in the printer, and when it's done, just turn it over. The only time I use a one-sided sheet is when I'm going to give the paper to someone (like a coupon), but 99% of the time I use both sides always! Like Ali O said, it saves paper, trees and best of all, money!

I love reusing paper, and then recycle it when it's all filled up:)

At home I always try to use both sides of the paper for printing; especially if it's just something that I'm going to keep for myself for reference. At work, my office uses a lot of paper (unnecessarily ) for memos (ie: a whole piece of paper for two lines!) so I always cut the paper into four squares (after I've read it of course!) and use them for scrap paper. I try to keep some bigger squares handy for longer notes. I'll have to check and see if my home printer has an option for double sided printing.
