(Today's book giveaway listed below.)
If you enjoy cooking, chances are you have a stack of recipes you’ve torn from magazines or printed from online. Even though earlier in A Year of Decluttering you worked through printed recipes, chances are that between Thanksgiving and the winter holidays you’ve acquired a new stack of “Hmm, I’d like to try this.” I know I have.
Flip through these recipes, weeding out the ones you know you won’t make and leave the other recipes someplace where you’ll see them and make plans to add something new to your repertoire.
Did you buy the ingredients for any of these recipes? Plan when you’ll make the dish; or, if the thought of preparing the dis is no longer appealing, donate the ingredients to your local food bank.
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Eliminate five pieces of paper from your files.
Want to win a book? Today I'm giving away Miss Minimalist Francine Jay's book, The Joy of Less. In the comments below, tell me that you're interested. I'll pull the winner's name on 11/28.
