Organization Project: Blog Binder

While I post a lot and try to come up with original ideas, sometimes I need help.  Let’s face it I have a full time job and I maintain 2 blogs, have a toddler, and a husband.  Sometimes I get writers block.  🙂

I decided to de-clutter my work-space a bit and go through the huge stack of magazines that has been piled up for months.  I took key articles and ideas and put them all in one organized space.  So then when I need inspiration and ideas I can go there.  It’s my brand new blog binder.

IMG_6956I used labels to label the index tabs.  Much less expensive to replace tabs that you get in multi-packs instead of having to buy a whole new set of dividers.  These dividers are the ones with the folder pocket.

IMG_6957Having page protectors handy is good.  Magazine paper is flimsy so punching holes in it and putting it directly into the binder can be frustrating when you are actually trying to look at the pages and they rip.  Page protectors are perfect for the job.

Adding clippings like motivational sayings, recipes, or samples is perfect just to tape down to a sheet of printer paper and put in the binder that way.  The best part of this is that you have room to write notes.  Is the recipe good and worth making again?  Was the card difficult to make?  What modifications could you make?

IMG_6959Then there is the directly adding articles to the binder, this works well obviously for any type of handout, printout etc that you get.   I know, I know, this one is painfully obvious.  But just covering all of my bases.

Hoping to get back to posting regularly.  Life has been kind of crazy this week.

Thanks for stopping by today.

More to come!!!
