My New Project

If your like me, you'll accumulate many magazines over the years.  I have stacks and stacks of homesteading and herbal magazines that I keep "just in case" I need an article out of them.  Well, yesterday I started looking at all of the space that they took up.  I'm at that stage in life where space is more important than the magazines.  But, what if I NEED one of those articles?  So I got to thinking,  why don't I start taking out the things that interests me in the magazines and put them in a folder?  I could have a recipe folder, an herbal folder, an DIY folder, I actually could have a FEW folders.  But, I know for a fact, that they wouldn't take up all of the space that the magazines do plus, they would be more organized so I could find them easier.

It's funny, I was just thinking about doing this when I came across this post at Rural Revolution.  Patrice makes a lot of since by doing this.  I have TONS of links that I have bookmarked for keeping.  Looks like I'm gonna have to do some printing too.  You know though, I really like doing things like this.  I guess I'm kind of weird that way.  I love organizing things. (Although you couldn't tell it from looking at my house. :0)  )

So I just thought I would give you all a heads up on my new project.  I'm looking forward to starting it.  Plus, this gives me an excuse to go and buy new folders and new paper and new pencils and new crayons and new....... Okay, I guess I don't really need all of that stuff, but I just might buy it anyway.  I just can't help myself when I get into the stationary department. Hehehehe

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, organizer extraordinaire

I have the printouts, I have the binders & the tabs. Want to come to my house to practice before you tackle your own?
