Q. I have so many magazines I'm saving for a recipe or article. How can I make it easy to find what I'm looking for?
A. We all have good intentions to use a decorating idea, recipe or review an article from a magazine. However, if there are piles of magazines to sift through, it's nearly impossible to efficiently search and retrieve.
Solution: Tear out the full-page article, recipe, etc. and slip it into a 3-hole, clear sheet protector (available at all office supply stores). Using loose-leaf binders, create a specific subject to hold your information. For example, a recipe binder can hold your full page recipes and be divided into categories such as casseroles, appetizers, desserts, breads, etc. Added bonus, the sheet protector keeps them clean while cooking in the kitchen.
Create a binder for each subject or a master binder with various topics or related topics like health and fitness, decorating, Christmas ideas, college search, appliance search—the possibilities are endless. Retrieval of information will be at your fingertips and the bulky magazines can be put into the recycling bin.
