I love my food mags but I hate magazine pile ups! I started a tear sheet project a long long time ago and unfortunately I've been pretty bad about the whole thing. So I spent a good amount of time last Saturday going through ALL of my past issues of Gourmet and Cooks Illustrated. I bought a bunch of composition books one for recipes, shop ideas and fashion inspiration.
I taped/glued recipes and sometimes just took down notes. Easy way to get rid of your mags but still keeping your favorite articles, recipes etc. It also makes it easy to find a recipe instead of having to remember the exact issue :)
