Muktzeh Machmat Chisaron Kis

42 bytes added, 10 July
# Some poskim say that blank paper is considered Muktzeh Machmat Chisaron Kis, while others only consider it a Kli SheMelachto LeIssur. <ref>* Mishna Brurah 308:3 writes that blank paper is Muktzeh Machmat Chisaron Kis. Rav Moshe Feinstein in Igrot Moshe 4:72 writes that this still applies today since no sensible person would waste a blank piece of paper that’s useable for writing. See Halachos of [[Muktzeh]] (p. 84) who quotes Rav Moshe Feinstein as saying that even paper that one isn’t concerned about wasting is still [[Muktzeh Machmat Gufo]] since it has no purpose.
* Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach (Meor HaShabbat v. 1 letter 10:3), however, says that a single piece of paper isn’t [[Muktzeh]] because people aren’t concerned about using it to clean something. Thus, Shemirat [[Shabbat]] Kehilchata 20:19 writes that only expensive stationary is Muktzeh Machmat Chisaron Kis, but regular paper is considered Kli SheMelachto LeIssur since it is designated for writing. </ref>
# Blank pieces of paper are [[Muktzeh]]. Therefore, if a loose-leaf binder has pages with content together with blank pages, and the pages of content have some importance and one sometimes reads them, then, the binder is not [[Muktzeh]] and one may turn the blank pages in order to reach the pages of content. However, if the pages of content aren’t of importance and one doesn’t read them, then the binder as a whole is [[Muktzeh]] and should be moved. <Ref>Shemirat [[Shabbat]] KeHilchata 28:9 . Chut Shani v. 3 p. 59 is lenient since </ref>
