I wish I had counted the number of times that I was told “I will get to those magazines eventually, they have articles I want to read.” I am not saying you shouldn’t read magazines but it is interesting how stacks of magazines are prevelant in many homes today causing clutter and that nagging feeling that “you will get to them some day”.
There is a solution that I have found works really well…
Step 1) Skim through the magazine for articles you want to read.
Step 2) Cut out the pages with the article. I use the iSlice from Pampered Chef because it is magnetic and can be placed out of reach of little fingers.
Step 3) Store in an expanding file folder by category. You can spend more time looking at the articles you really want than the piles you don’t want.
Step 4) I do something similar with recipes but check back soon for more information on recipe organization.
