Blank paper on Shabbat


Classically, blank paper was viewed as muktzeh on Shabbat, because it was valuable and people were concerned about its potential damage. Blank paper remains muktzeh today, despite its decrease in value, for it is dedicated for use as a writing material, and no one disposes of blank paper without cause.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:72)

Have a great day,
