Then one fine day I was in Office Depot or Staples or some other office supply store (I have a secret fetish for paper products and pens) and saw some clear, plastic sheet protectors and a little light bulb went off in my head.
These are the result.
I tore out all the recipes I wanted to keep from those magazines, resulting in loads of space in my house for some new magazines! And new cookbooks!
The original ring binder notebook style.
The 20-40 page pre-made sheet protector notebooks they sell in France. I've had mixed results with these. Some have very flimsy plastic so when you slide the sheet of paper into it, the seams rip open. Now I look for heavy duty plastic pages.
I keep notebooks for home and decorating ideas, places I want to travel and miscellaneous stuff, in addition to the growing number of cooking, food and wine related one's.
Organizing at its finest!
