Editor in Chief

I decided to grab life by the reigns and be my own editor in chief. How you say? By devising my own magazines with coveted articles in magazines.

If you're anything like me you've saved magazines before. Why? Because of one article. Yep, one article has warranted a magazine is kept.

I tell you, I've had enough of this madness, I decided to do something about it and organize myself. I'm sick of bags full of magazines sitting in my closet, taking up space where my shoes should be.

I've saved so many types of magazines and I decided to remedy this by buying binders and plastic page protectors. I then took to going through all of these old magazines and tearing out the articles that had kept them from the trash can. I organized seperate binders into these categories:
  1. Health and Beauty
  2. Home Decor and Ideas
  3. Wedding Planning
Move over Anna Wintour, the Design Apprentice is in town.

I love the results! My articles are protected, my shoes have space, and I feel organized. What do you do to feel organized in your life? I'd love to hear.


  1. OMG I totally love this idea!! You are brilliant! Mind if I steal the idea? I have the same problem! I'm totally doing it this weekend!

  2. That is a good idea Katie! I love it and am the same way... except that I keep them and then every so often I get in a purge mode and throw away everything that I have not looked at! I always feel organized if my kitchen is organized and if my closet is in order. Weird.

  3. Of course you can take this idea, that's what its there for. I hope it helps you as much as it did me! Let me know what magazines you end up finding yourself editor and chief of, ha.

    I also forgot, I bought a binder for recipes off the internet too, but I haven't started organizing that one yet.

    LaurieAnna, Welcome to my blog, thanks for the feedback. I can't wait to check out your blog.

    Les, thanks lady. I can see you going through organization mode hard core. I bet you're like me and can't think in a messy house?
