Cover your books in recycled paper bags or wrap... decorate them yourself, they could look fun and you might start a trend!
Use up last years school supplies before you buy new ones.
Use the reverse side of scrap paper for your first drafts of writing, art and math projects.
Keep a "craft box" of discards you think might be handy for class projects during the year...mark it "my craft box" so noone will mistake it for trash! Keep things like empty yogurt containers, elastics, string etc...that might interesting and useful for your art.
