Declutter Challenge #14

Are you tired from this weekend’s purge?  We’re going to slow down a bit today and take a bit of a breather.  This is a 5-15 minute challenge (I hope!)

The Magazine Stash

If you don’t have any magazines you have a free day (or you can pick something else).  If you’ve got a stack of them lurking somewhere, time to cull them.  I know, I know… there’s a great recipe in this one that you are going to try.  And that one has some cute ideas for your son’s next birthday. 
Your real challenge for today… being honest with yourself. When was the last time you actually made a new recipe from a magazine?  Last week?  Okay, then clip the one you want, put it on your menu plan for this week.  Last year decade?  Um, yeah… you want to be the type of person who cooks fabulous new recipes from magazines but, um, you’re not.  Toss it.  If you really want it later, it’s probably available online.  And I know you’re internet savvy enough to find it because you are reading a blog.
So be ruthless.  Get rid of the ones you’ve read.  If you do decide to pull out a few pages/articles then make sure you have a place for them.  Better yet… add the information about the product/article/recipe/url to your Springpad notebook and come back to it when you have time.
