Thank goodness I didn't throw this out - an old three ring binder that once held my "staff handbook."
I've also got a whole box of these plastic sheet protectors - all of which adds up to an idea files folder!This is a great task for evening TV watching when you want to feel like you're doing something productive. I go through each magazine and tear out each page that contains something I want to try/make for the home or garden. When I'm done I usually have maybe six pages - out of a whole magazine's worth - that I really want to keep around.
Into the plastic sheet protectors they go, back to back and making sure that connecting pages end up together and in order.
