Everybody we know has a stash of mags somewhere in the house that they are reluctant to part with or, at least, don't know what to do with.
Unless you have that certain-something ability to make a stack of mags look like a cool decorator accessory, get organised with them and develop a system for stashing the good stuff and getting free of the mass of dust-collecting journals.
One simple tool you can use to get your newspaper and magazine piles under control, once and for all, is the humble highlighter pen – but with a twist!
3M™ has designed a highlighter pen with Post it flags at the end, and I highly recommend these as ‘the tool of all tools’ for this purpose. (Oprah endorses it – and even spoke about it on one of her shows – so of course it must be good!).
Regularly, I see stacks of newspapers and magazines cluttering up clients’ homes – collections that take up much needed physical and mental space, just creating ‘another job to do’. Clients say the reason that they collect in piles is ‘because there are articles in them that I want to keep’. With no strategy or tool to assist them, they unconsciously create more work for themselves. Most people haven’t marked the pages and if only they had, they would have saved themselves SO MUCH TIME!
A simple way to avoid this problem in the future – is to make a decision to start from now and use the ‘3M™ Post It Flag highlighter pen’ each time your pick up a newspaper or magazine.
Often, a little thought and education is all it takes to change.
