Saving Articles From Magazines Or Newspapers


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I often save news articles and have found that if I don't clip the article immediately, the entire magazine or paper ends up lying around. Clipping it immediately helps me recycle the magazine in a timely fashion and helps me find the article without having to page through the entire magazine.

    Our local Knights of Columbus collects magazines and sends them to the troops!

    I do the same thing and I keep binders for different topics (health/fitness, crafts recipes etc.) then I can look back at them when I need to.

    YES, yes, yes! I just recycled more magazines than I care to admit (I'm in a de-cluttering phase right now). The only reason I'd held on to them was that I knew there were articles, or recipes, or exercises that I wanted to keep and hadn't gotten around to it. Now, I'll do them as soon as I read the magazine so my house doesn't get cluttered! Great tip!!

    !t makes me nuts when a housemate does that! The other people in the house have a right to read the newspaper too. I say, put a sticky note on the page and circle the item you want to clip.

    I do the same with the "motivational" images - just cut them out right away and recycle the magazine
