Magazines are research and inspiration for lots of creative people, but the piles get overwhelming REALLY quickly! Get into the habit of cutting out everything in your magazines and catalogs that you like, are inspired by, or want to keep. Put everything into smaller notebooks organized by year and I promise you will use them more in this form than in the magazine itself. Mine have color combinations, textures and my own sketches and notes. This way, I don’t get sucked into a whole magazine I already looked at 10 times before. Do this once a month with all your zines to maintain your de-cluttered lifestyle!
P.S. Keep clipped recipes in a separate notebook from the one with that YSL bag you might want to splurge on one day! 😉
