Inspired by several recent blog posts, I have decided to join those who are tackling the paper monster.
Mine was sooo bad that I couldn't see my laundry room counter.
Taking advantage of being snowed in, I also got my taxes done & did some organizing in my idea binder.
That's one area I am quite good at keeping up on.
So I thought I would share my organizational system with you.
Keep in mind, I don't like to save magazines.
(Except for Mary Jane's Farm & Backpacker)
They take up too much space.
I remove what I am interested in and recycle the rest.
#2 box is for all the things that I liked and ripped out of the magazines.
(or things I printed off the internet or ideas from friends, etc, etc)
I also store my plastic sheet protectors in box #2.
I decorated a plain white 3 ring binder.
(The bigger the better, more room for all those ideas)
Now you need to label some dividers, I used the following categories:
Good Things (It's a great misc. category)
I also have a tab for my Farmgirl Sisterhood Stuff.
I don't do any recipes in this book because I have a separate binder just for recipes.
I slip the pages into the sheet protectors; or if they are too small, glue them to a sheet of white paper first.
I will also trim the edges a bit just so the pages look neat.
Then just put your sheets in the proper place & there you go!
