I don't think anyone said this but this trick was really helpful to me. You can get below 6 pt font on google docs by first making a word document and then uploading it to google drive and editing it as a google doc. That way you get a lot of perks from both word and google docs.
Doesn't google docs support font size below 6 pt now?
Oh yeah, I guess it does now.

Anybody uses Google Slides? *Cringes*. I personally find it easier to format. And how do you guys even read 3.5 font? For my last invitationals my Crime Busters sheet had a 9 point font Times New Roman.

Same! I use 10 pt. font or maybe that's because I don't have waaaaay too much to cram

you can print multiple pages per page. I'd especially suggest doing this if you want to print out Wikipedia pages or whatever

Basically means that it prints a "page" on every quadrant of each side.

Size 3.5 or 4 font, single spaced, margins that go to the edge of the paper.
Also a lot of copy+paste+rewrite
