I really like magazines. I get a lot of magazines. It's hard for me to get rid of magazines. And therefore they're all over my apartment. I realized this summer that the stack of cooking magazines in my kitchen, that I kept "just in case I needed to look up a recipe," hadn't been opened in months and was collecting dust. I had to do something about it. So I went through every. single. page of every. single. magazine and tore out the recipes and "tips and hints" articles that caught my eye. Then I sorted the recipes into categories like entrees, sides, breads, desserts etc. I bought a three ring binder and a pack of those clear page protectors, trimmed up the edges of the pages, and slippped them inside. So instead of a basket of dusty magazines, or messy piles of torn out pages, everything is nice, neat, and organized inside the binder. Basically, it's like old school Pinterest! Now, when I read something in a magazine that I like, I go ahead and tear out the page, and I can toss the magazine with no worries.
