I don't know about you, but I have a hard time throwing out magazines with hosehold tips and recipes. Martha Stewart taking the lead.
I don't even subscribe to magazines, these are just issues I've been given, found in "free" boxes, or end up on my shelf in some other magical way. But they really do take up so much room! Not to mention it'll take me ages to find one recipe that I think I saw a month ago.
Solution: Cut out the pages I want and put them in a binder.
Using an X-acto knife I cut out recipes and household tips and decor ideas. Some recipes are cut and taped on a page because I wanted just one recipe and not the whole page it came on.
Then they go in lightweight plastic sleeves (I ended up using over 200).
It's all still a work in progress, but has been great so far. You can do this with any magazine: fashion, craft, hobby, etc. and organize it further with tabs.
I'm going to categorize my home binder with "Decor" "Housekeeping" "Clothing care" and "Renovations".
For the binder spine (is it called a spine like a book?) I cut a piece from a scrap of vintage wallpaper and stenciled basic labels.
Much less space taken up, much easier to find things I want, and looks cute to boot!
Just be sure to be careful when using an X-acto knife, they can be very sharp and slippery!
