Among my new year’s resolutions is a goal to sort through a backlog of magazines — one a day until they’re gone by Feb. 28.
Most years, I come up with a theme for my resolutions and I’m not sure how this one will fit in — “catch up”? “lighten up”? — but in any case, it’s probably as world-changing as “brush dog’s teeth once a day.” Like a basket case with OCD, I just can’t bring myself to toss away these paper treasures without so much as a second glance, so I’m requiring myself to page through them before they become so much landfill.
Today, I leafed through the August 2012 issue of Southern Living and found such seasonally useful fare as how to preserve summer’s bounty in jam and grill watermelon. Ugh.
But I also found an idea for decorating my stairway:
I’m not much for family photos gathering dust in my house, but I’ve been thinking I ought to dress up my stairway. Maybe a combination of family photos and artwork like this could be the trick.
Like it? So I could toss away the magazine, I pinned it, and you can “Pin It” here, too — no muss, no fuss, no wasteful paper detritus. Ain’t the internet grand?
