A small stack of magazines looks cool and casual, like, “Hey, I’m just sittin’ here, flipping through a glossy magazine.” More than three or four and you look like a sloppy pack rat with no friends.
My food magazine collection started to look sloppy pack rat, so I took out my scissors and decided to make a fun day of cutting out all my favorite recipes.
I was having so much fun. “This is going to be great!” I thought.
After an hour of furiously cutting away my fingers started hurting so I stopped to check out my progress.
Sh*t. What am I going to do with all these? Now I have a pile of misshapen, torn clippings with no home.
The clippings and extra magazines have been hidden behind books on my bookshelf, with the scissors on top, for more than three months now. I mostly read food blogs and keep my recipes online, but a lot of times I just can’t say no to a good looking food magazine so I end up accumulating.
Perhaps I shouldn’t have titled this post “How not to be a food magazine pack rat.” I’m the one who needs advice!
Do you have a fun/cool/stylish way to store recipes from magazines? Or am I the only granny around here who still has clippings? 🙂
