Binder for Great Thrifty Ideas

This may have been suggested before, but I have not seen it. After finding so many great ideas, some I wanted to do, or try, right away, and some I wanted for future reference, I came up with this plan.


First I emptied a three ring notebook (the kind that holds regular school paper). Then I started printing the various ideas, or solutions to problems, and gluing them on notebook paper, or just writing them down on the paper. I took dividers to make some sense from it all, with food ideas in one space, craft things in another, stain removal in one, pet issues, etc.

You may ask why I didn't just save it on my computer, well, have you ever saved anything, and had your computer crash? That's why! The things I find on ThriftyFun are usually very helpful, and informative, so I want a solid copy that I can have in the area I need it.

This has already helped in a couple situations. You can certainly use different types of binders, notebooks, etc., But the full size is what i had, and find that it works very well. If a picture was involved, and it doesn't print well, I sketch something that I can follow just as well. Maybe this will be as helpful to you as it has been already for me.

I, too, use notebooks for organizing. My husband says I have notebook itus, but it works for me. In my recipe notebook I use the plastic page protectors. That way when using it, the recipes don't have a tendency to get ruined...just in case yuky hands or ingredients might accidentally find there way to the recipe and get ruined. Marge P. FL

I do this too. I have hundred of things bookmarked in Thriftyfun but I can't always organize them into categories that are useful to me. So I print the most valuable ones and store them in a binder with index tabs.
