A Blog Basket

I've accumulated a little messy pile of blog notes that needed organization.
I made myself a blog file basket.
I cut manila file folders to fit into my basket.
I saved the cuttings for next week's project. I have no idea what that is yet!
Gave the fold a good crease with a knife.
Stacked them in for a fitting. I used on of my favorite Longaberger baskets.
Printed labels in Word using Avery 8167 labels
Categories I use most: saved blog recipes, decorating ideas, crafts, etc. that I find on favorite blogs.
Also future post ideas and blog tips.
I can easily tote it anywhere....on the patio,
in the family room. 
I'm hoping it keeps my blog papers under control and makes things I've saved easier to find.
This set-up would work for whatever  paper chase you have.

Cheers!

  15. What a wonderful idea! I hate to say it, but I have a cardboard packing box in my kitchen with all my recipes that I have photocopied out of books or magazines. There are so many. I try to keep them organized but to no avail. I think this is a splendid idea, and now I just need to look for the perfect basket. Yours looks great.
