What to do with old practice sheets?

I have been asked what to do with old practice or scrap sheets. Well.. keep em! This is one of my scrap tubs, which I keep everything I’ve done over the years. Old drills, letters with blots and splatters, torn test papers.. everything goes into the tub. It serves two purposes: you can just dig into your tub whenever you need scrap paper for practice, and you can also keep track of your progress. It is so enlightening when going through a scrap tub after months of work, you’ll see with fresh eyes just how horrible months old work can be. It is quite encouraging to compare the then and now!
