I've been really assessing my house situation in the past week or so, and realized I have a lot of clutter. And most of it could probably go. So I started small, with a stack of magazines.  My clutter went from this:

To this!

Ah. Much better!  I ripped out anything I thought was interesting enough to keep, then sat done and went through it again really reading the article/recipe/tip.  I ended up throwing out more the second time too!  
Now I  am thinking of either cutting the recipes out and sticking in my box, or leaving them full sheet for a binder.

Anyone ever do this?  Or have any other ideas? I would love some help!


  1. I do the exact same thing! Then I put the articles into categories of labeled binders, like recipes, fashion, or beauty tips.

  2. Melissa- I thought about binders... But since I don't have too many yet... I will use dividers for now!

  3. I have a recipe binder and it works great. I have dividers in it to break down the different types of recipes then I hole punch printed recipes we like (the ones we don't end up liking never make it in) and if I find something in a magazine, I cut it out and tape it down to a piece of white paper. I keep plain hole-punched paper in the pocket to make it easy. I also have a magazine box where I tuck recipes we haven't yet tried which seems to be a great way to keep them off the counter.


I love hearing from you! If asking a question, make sure to leave a way to get in contact with you!
