The Family Handyman
You’re right—you’ll never have time to do all the great projects in each issue of The Family Handyman. But faithful reader Sally Berray showed us her technique for keeping the “wannahaves” and “someday will needs” within easy reach. Before shelving each issue, Sally cuts out her favorites and encases them in plastic sheet protectors, storing them in a three-ring binder, separating the articles by category with labeled dividers. Then, when her faucet’s dripping, the roof is leaking or she finally has time to build that garage workbench, she spends zero time digging through a pile of old magazines. Yep, this is a great tip. Clip it and file it away!
