I love getting magazines with recipes and craft ideas. They can soon add up when you want to keep them for their ideas. If space is limited, it becomes a clutter problem. My solution to keeping the ideas and recipes I want is to read through the magazines first. I flag the pages that I am interested in keeping. I sort them as to craft magazines or housekeeping/recipes magazines.
Later when I have time, I go to my 5 in one printer on my computer and copy the pages I want. If color makes a difference in the outcome I will print in color, if not I will just use black ink to copy. I have a hole punch and notebook handy. I insert the pages according to their category in the notebook.
The best thing about this method is that I can pass the magazine on to friends or family as a whole magazine and not one with missing pages. I also discovered that they sell great at yard sales. We bundle 4 or 5 and sell as one price (we remove the address label). That way others get to enjoy the ideas as well.
