Ever wonder what to do with magazines that you are ready to get rid of but maybe there is something in there you might want to see again....make a book!
One thing I love is to look at magazines for new recipes....not that I have the time to try them all, but still, one day I might! So, I go through my magazines and cut out recipes that are of interest to me. Then I put them in a recipe book, which is just a binder. And I like having things stay neat, so I use the page protectors, then I can pull out a recipe that I want to try and pop it back in where it goes. I also like to know where the main dishes are, the sides, and of course the desserts in my book. I just use post it tabs, but if you want to get even more organized get the real tabs to make it look better! You can also tab or sticker your favorite recipes so you always know where they are!
Something I want to do in the future is pull out all my favorite recipes and put them in a smaller binder so I know exactly where they are! :) Especially when my friends say that something tastes really good!
I also will pull out decorating ideas and tips that I find. Who needs all the advertisement and other stuff in the magazine anyway?!? I haven't created one yet, but you could do the same binder/book thing with the decorating ideas....oh and the butt buster workouts! haha! Never do I do them, but I do sometimes save them!
