Say No To Clutter!

I thought I was the original Tip Junkie, but apparently there are many out there like myself that just adore tips and tricks!

Unfortunately, this makes me hold on to tons of magazines and other papers that turn me into a pack-rat according to my husband. But, hey I might need those one day! (I think that might actually be one of the thoughts that define a pack rat but thats beside the point!)

So, I am saying no to clutter and getting organized!

I took an evening to go through each of my magazines, page by page, (dating back to 2006 I might add) and rip out every recipe I wanted to try, every article I wanted to read, every craft I wanted to tackle, etc., and put them in a folder.

It went from this:

To this:

Whew! Isn't that better?

Next step will organizing each page in its own corresponding notebook! And, of course keeping it up as I receive more and more free magazines!

How are you Saying No to Clutter?

Thanks for sharing! We will be having a Minimizing Monday in the near future on what to do with stacks of magazines. Looks like you're one step ahead on this one! Great ideas!
