Monday Motivation: Magazine Mess

It's Monday. Time for some motivation to tackle one problem you may find in your home. I was motivated to clean out my magazine basket for two reasons. One, my basket was full and running over with publications (I love to read and I love magazines). Two, I found a really cute magazine rack on clearance at Hancock Fabrics.

Here is the before picture:



Here is the after picture:




OK, here's what you need to do.

1. Pull the magazines out of the container one at a time.
2. Put all of THIS CURRENT MONTH'S issues in one pile. Put all of the older issues in a second pile.
3. Place ONLY the current issues back into your container (pick a new, improved one if you can!).
4. Take the old issues and choose how you want to handle them. Here are a few options:
a. put them in the recycling bin
b. share them with someone who would like them.
c. (this is what I do) Go through them and tear out any articles, recipes,
pictures, or ideas you want to keep. File them in your filing cabinet,
wish book, or recipe binder. Put what's left in the recycling bin.
