    I don t have room for clutter I just hate lugging around a big bag I think it was all those years with a diaper bag Anyway like a couple other folks here I keep my club cards and membership cards in a little credit card wallet in the glove box and my receipts in the shopping bags until I get home Marci OvercomingBusy s last post Start Overcoming Busy Right Now new series se7en says September 24 2009 at 4 29 pm Oh I wish I had a routine for emptying out cash receipts they accumulate so fast And I never get round to getting it done and then when I do I toss everything including laundry receipts post package slips I guess you just pin pointed my area of chaos everyone must have one se7en s last post Simple Spinning Pinwheels in Se7en Steps Rachel says September 24 2009 at 4 38 pm I absolutely don t believe that you let receipts collect You go on trips with just a change of clothes and a toothbrush mrs e says September 24 2009 at 5 44 pm I hang on to receipts until they clear my checking account and then I move them into an accordian file in my office A year s worth of debit receipts is quite a site to see You should see me digging through it at tax time trying to find a receipt we need I actually have one of those flat wallets and it won t hold much which makes me pare it down to essentials It won t hold much change either so I am constantly digging through to find enough to cover the amount over the dollar I m sure it would hold a lot of bills but I wouldn t know about that mrs e s last post Progress in Tiny Town Anna says September 24 2009 at 6 25 pm Most grocery stores with discount cards let you enter your phone number instead of scanning the card then you don t have to carry or keep the card at all Even LESS clutter Love the plastic sleeve idea for organizing gift cards buy 5 get one free cards etc Genius Thanks Rachel Anna s last post Summer is over Transitioning my wardrobe to fall Terri says September 24 2009 at 6 56 pm My wallet is nearly identical to the one pictured However it is starting to fall apart Do you know where to find the one pictured I keep all our gift cards loyalty cards notes on printer ink refills etc in a small wallet sized photo album with clear sleeves That has worked really well and I can keep it in my bag Blessings Terri s last post Help Needed and A Giveaway Rachel says September 25 2009 at 2 03 pm Great idea to use the small photo album Nope I don t know where the wallet is from Slackerjo says September 24 2009 at 6

  • Catching Up - Small Notebook
    September 22 2009 at 1 15 pm Ugghhh Diet Pepsi I know this stuff is really bad for you just look at the ingredient list I have gotten better with not drinking as much Growing up if and when we got soda it was a real treat now it was a staple in my house my grocery cart was full of more stuff to drink then food Sad I guess what really made me start thinking this habit had to go was when pop prices went up and I was pregnant definitely not a health food and I watched my 7 year old and 13 year old think that they were entitled to have soda on a daily basis Then I started to look at some of the bottles which were 16 to 24 ounces and realizing I could have easily drank three or more of them a day my kids were asking and begging for pop all of the time I realized it had to start with me by not buying it Who says this stuff is not addictive It is hard to drink just plain water sometimes though I am not sure what it is the taste caffeine or what makes me want to have something flavored or fizzy to drink steadymom says September 22 2009 at 1 45 pm Used to be a hard core soda girl myself but no more So you can do it too Hope you guys are enjoying life as a family of four Jamie Marci OvercomingBusy says September 22 2009 at 2 39 pm There s nothing like publicly drawing a line in the sand that you are not going to cross Its scary but sometimes its just the motivation and accountability we need Good luck Marci OvercomingBusy s last post Menu Plan Monday Sept 21 2009 Nancy says September 22 2009 at 2 55 pm I have one diet coke a day Maybe 2 on a weekend I don t drink coffe though so in my mind that s a fair trade If I was a coffee AND soda drinker well that would be a different story Good luck with your goal You know we ll all be watching right Nancy s last post on the menu mrs e says September 22 2009 at 4 31 pm I gave up Diet Pepsi last spring and blogged about it too For 3 months I didn t drink it at all I ve had a few since then but I still drink more water than anything else And iced tea is a good substitute too Good luck And you re right the soda is very addictive I had to taper off rather than go completely without the caffeine The headaches can be crippling Sounds like your little family is doing well mrs e s last post Out of the Mouths of My Babes Sherry says September 22 2009 at 4 35 pm My name is Sherry I m addicted to Diet Coke I feel like some of us are coming out of the closet with our addiction others have kicked it I need a sponser I have a serious addiction to DC as I typed this I have a nice coooool DC on ice ummmmm soo good Honestly I don t mean to equate my DC addiction to those with serious substance addiction but I just can t live without it I keep coming up with excuses as to WHY I shouldn t quit But I think this post is going to be my public outing So can I at least finish the rest of my 12 pack Then there will be no temptation around I really have to give this some thought Cara says September 22 2009 at 6 34 pm Sherry Diet soda addiction is a pretty severe substance addiction its just more tolerated and socially acceptable My doctor told me to quit my Diet Pepsi Coke kick when I was having heart palpitations and sleep apnea Told me to research Aspartame Equal detoxification and addiction HOLY Smokes Scary stuff Aspartame is a success because of its addictive properties I spoke with a doctor who said if you have a 12 can a day habit 144oz expect your withdrawal to be similar to kicking a heroine addiction 6 can a day 72 oz expect it to be like quitting smoking The first time I tried to quit I almost ended up divorced I became a monster Second time I tried I stepped down and did much better Still got physical responses the sweats shakes agitated irritable and moody in addition to the horrible headaches I ve been off Aspartame for 4 months and I sleep better have more mental clarity and no heart palps So you aren t crazy or simplifying your habit what you are feeling is real The real corker was that I read some information that said Aspartame was invented by the same food company that held the rights to Saccharine but when they realized aspartame had addictive properties to it they ordered the saccharine cancer studies to move the marketplace away from Saccharine still never showed any signs of cancer in humans to this day and towards Aspartame I sound like a conspiracies freak but I was shocked when I learned all this Today there are significant links between Diabetics and high incidence of Alzheimer s but some scientists believe the missing link is the Aspartame consumption not the blood sugar issue since Diabetics are always ingesting sugar substitutes 1 being Aspartame Sorry didn t mean to hijack the thread just wanted to encourage you and others on your quests to kick the diet soda habit Feel free to email me if you have questions comments etc Sherry says September 23 2009 at 2 33 pm Cara Thanx see my post below couldn t figure out how to email you I clicked on your name nothing came up Deanna L says September 22 2009 at 5 12

  • Question: How Do You Organize Magazines? - Small Notebook
    somewhere where they usually get lost but with my newfound love of Evernote thanks Rachel I think scanning them and organizing them into files online would be a great way to go Another thought is to go to the magazine s website and you can find a lot of the same articles pictures there without ever having to buy the magazine Kait Palmer s last post American Idol Auditions for My Bro Denise C says September 17 2009 at 12 16 pm I love magazines I ll keep the really good ones forever The other ones I ll tear out what I want and file it away I have a home and recipe binder Then the rest of it goes into the recycle bin V Higgins says September 17 2009 at 12 22 pm I have a 3 ring binder with sleeve protectors that I put cut out articles in it s divided up in topics like health home etc and then give it away or recycle it V Higgins s last post The Winter Wait Mandy says September 17 2009 at 12 50 pm I m all about getting rid of hte clutter too So I go through tear out anything that interests me I have a notebook of home decor ideas that I like so that whenever I get around to remodeling our kitchen for instance I ll have a ton of photos of things I like at my fingertips Recipes are put in clear sheet covers filed in a 3 ring notebook I have files for my kids craft ideas good articles etc and then I go through at hte end cut out images that my daughter sometimes I like to use for collages In the end not much is left so the rest goes in the recycling Mandy s last post 10 on 10 really late Minnesotamom says September 17 2009 at 12 59 pm I do exactly the same as V Higgins above no need to repeat it I just have several 3 ring binders based on topic decorating gardening plants recipes etc Minnesotamom s last post Sunday Sunshine 09 13 09 chelsea says September 17 2009 at 1 45 pm i have a magazine bucket if it gets full i have to mercilessly purge if i haven t read that parents magazine from feb of 2008 am i really going to read it now also i keep current magazines in the bathroom it s my uniterrupted time it makes the magazines last longer and i don t use 30 60 minutes to just read a mag when i could be working or chasing kids or whatever as i read i tag something i want to keep then i put the mag in my file shelf when i purge that shelf once a week i review the tags if i can t remember why i tagged it or i don t care anymore i untag it the tagged articles i find online and bookmark and then i pass the mag on to a friend if i can t find it online i try to decide if i need the information badly enough to clutter my small file box with i even got rid of my collection of everyday food mags i had almost every issue but reviewed all the issues tagged the recipes i wanted to keep found them online and then passed the collection to my excited sister who loves the magazine but with her college budget couldn t justify renewing her subscription Sundi D Hayes says September 17 2009 at 2 59 pm If no one has mentioned it yet this sounds like a perfect use for Evernote http www evernote com Then donate or recycle Daycares and art teachers love old magazines Sundi D Hayes s last post Give me a Google break Trixie B says September 17 2009 at 3 19 pm I subscribe to quite a few mags but only through bestdealmagazines com s deal of the day Usually about 4 for a year I rip out articles and recipes and save them in folders or binders Sometimes this becomes overwhelming especially when I already have plenty of recipe and craft idea pages but for me it s better than saving the whole magazine Ashley says September 17 2009 at 3 24 pm I used to be really bad about keeping magazine in case I want to look at that article again I had a whole drawer in my filing cabinet filled with them Now I rip out any articles I want to save for future reference as I read the magazine then recycle the rest of it immediately If I don t they tend to end up in piles around the house never to be read again I keep the articles I save in a file folder next to my computer so they are easily accessed when I want to look them up again Ashley s last post Dear Walmart Asterid says September 17 2009 at 3 44 pm I saw a really neat idea the other day If you have a few magazines you read often or you want to keep handy try a wine bottle rack You can roll the magazine and stick a magazine in each slot And since most wine racks are insanely decorative you could probably find one to match the room you keep the mags in As for having tons of magazines tearing out just the articles you want and filing them is my suggestion Asterid s last post Rain Again Tawnya says September 17 2009 at 4 17 pm While I am reading a magazine i turn down the corner of pages or articles i think I want to look at again or keep Then when I m ready to get rid of the magazine I just glance at the turned down pages to see if i want to cut it out Usually i only want to keep it half of the time or so I also don t have to re read the magazine looking for the tidbits i want to keep because they are already earmarked Susan LB says December 8 2011 at 2 52 pm Like this idea thanks Marianna says September 17 2009 at 6 34 pm I go through my accumulated magazines periodically and tear out anything I want to keep If it s an entire article I place it in a binder I have a couple of binders each with a different subject Once I tear out what I want I recycle the magazine I have three magazines that I keep each issue of two of which are out of production These I keep in magazine holders from Ikea For magazines that I don t tear anything out of I donate to the local public library Just dropped off a handful today in fact Marianna s last post Daily Cammy says September 17 2009 at 6 48 pm I used to tear out the articles projects ideas or photos I liked but found that I spent too much time trying to organize them in a way that would make sense later Now I just take a picture with my camera I can get a clear enough shot that I can still read small print I then organize the items in folders on my computer Much more efficient for me AND I can give away the entire magazine for someone else to enjoy Cammy s last post San Francisco 1980 Trisha says September 17 2009 at 6 48 pm I don t buy magazines because they re expensive I find that most information I enjoy is freely available online like in blogs such as this one One exception is my Scrapbooking magazines I have a small pile less than a dozen in a cupboard I bought them all second hand for a small fraction of the retail price or on special at a discount Trisha s last post The Secret Sauce for Effective Marketing Becky says September 17 2009 at 7 37 pm Magazines are definitely a little luxury for me I used to have a cute basket with them displayed in the living room my toddler had a fight with them and won Now my magazines are in a cute fabric bag that I keep in my bedroom closet It s actually a better system because they are ready to tote for a longer car ride when I m not driving or when I know that I ll be waiting for something or someone I cut out and save recipes to put in recipe binders and decorating ideas o in homekeeping binders The rest get recycled to friends and family Becky s last post Flu Season and Vitamins One Frugal GIrl says September 17 2009 at 8 33 pm I pull out all of the advertisements and any articles I don t plan to read Not only does this enable me to read a magazine more quickly but it also takes up much less space in the magazine rack I also tend to read with a small notebook beside me That way I can jot down any important URLs or other tidbits I want to keep handy for later One Frugal GIrl s last post Procrastination Has It s Grip on Me WorkingMom says September 17 2009 at 8 46 pm I have been trying to find an answer to this I have limited my subscriptions to three magazines and try to only keep the last two or three months on hand I have plowed through the older editions pulled out what I wanted and recycled the rest Now I just have to deal with the pile of tearouts electronic versions just don t cut it for me WorkingMom s last post Snippets of Conversation Tina Kubala says September 17 2009 at 9 16 pm I store magazines in cat litter containers with the tops cut off They are the perfect size I use Tidy Cats Mine are haphazard but you could put all the same magazine together I reread some use some for cutting up for crafty stuff I m a bit of a pack rat so I hate to waste perfectly good reading material and awesome graphics Tina Kubala s last post My High School German Fails Mary R says September 17 2009 at 11 24 pm I usually try to give them away to friends first and then donate to a community center where art writing or esl classes are held Besides that I recycle them Mary R s last post Reverse Culture Shock Kristin says September 18 2009 at 12 40 am I used to tear out what I wanted and keep them in binders before passing them on to friends but I discovered that my friends like whole magazines not ones with holes Now I scan them and tag tag tag them so I can find what I am looking for do I want a chicken recipe or an idea to freshen up my family room Kristin s last post Pampering myself September Vidisha says September 18 2009 at 1 22 am In India its fairly easy I ll snip the articles I want sometimes i clip pictures for collages and projects The rest get sold Yes a smallscale junk dealer will actually come home with scales to weigh it and buy it off you From there its get recycled into paper bags which again is great for the environment As for that lill cash that I get it goes into my change box and is handy for paying for home deliveries another big trend in India and its always free But I do tend to pile up my readers digests and Good Housekeeping Need to use some of your tips for that mmmmm maybe bind them Heather says September 18 2009 at 1 49 am I read my magazines with a pad of sticky tabs and tab pages that take my interest I then plan to scan them in and tag with keywords and file in different folders I used to rip and keep in plastic sleeves I still like this idea s flicking through a book or file is much nicer than flicking through a computer folder I do like to keep magazines intact adn then give to friends or donate to thrift shops as this is where I pick up the odd magazine too and there is nothing more annoying than seeing a cover article only to have it ripped out Marcia Francois Organising Queen says September 18 2009 at 5 08 am Here s my favourite ways to organise magazines http organisingtips blogspot com 2007 11 my best 4 ways to tame
