My quest to Lighten Up My Paper Load is in full swing. After years of collecting tear sheets from magazines, it was time to complete steps 5 and 6 of my filing methodology.
Over the weekend, I finally attacked the remainder of the tear sheets awaiting me
and sorted them into stacks, tossing a fair number of sheets of questionable value.
I discovered new categories to add to the filing system, although not recipe related:
- Hostess Gifts
- Technology and Apps to Try
While inspecting my Recipes to Try stacks, I noticed an affinity for certain noshes because I had collected numerous versions:
- Bourbon Balls
- Pimiento Cheese
- Angel Biscuits
- Rum Raisin anything
- Cheese wafers and straws
Now when I have a craving to try one of them, I can simply consult the treasure trove I’ve filed in my basement.
In fact, I tested three firsts-for-me from the Recipes to Try file drawer for my CAbi show last night.
Although I didn’t lose any caloric pounds, I feel unburdened of pounds of paper weighing my psyche down. Give it a try!
