I have been cleaning out. Story of my life. :) One area that I easily overlook is paper. I have been amassing piles of recipes and clippings. Since I have been in one of those I-don't-know-what-to-cook funks, I thought cleaning out my recipes would be good inspiration. As I was doing it, I realized a cute little method I typically use when organizing anything:
It works for just about anything- clothes, toys, books...
Here it is working for my recipes:
|I like making collages, but I need to figure out how to flip-flop it. |
It would have made more sense in this case. :)
I used some file folders I had to organize the papers into categories. Then I made better use of my wooden desktop organizer ($2 at a yard sale!). I had been stuffing papers into the red, open notebook. I pulled out a smaller calendar and put away the cleaned-out notebook. I grouped all my Shaklee paperwork together. I even put some pictures in the organizer.
I did the recipes while Eli was taking his morning nap. The desk qualifies for a quick clean-up, though, because once I got on it, it was fast work.
Except the papers are still all over the floor.
