One of the upsides to having a real clear out is the uncovering of materials that are useful in many different ways. For example: A recent clear out of a corner of my office netted me a good sized three ring binder with some dividers.
I tucked it away for a while but drug it out when I realized I had accumulated a large collection of card recipes, color charts, and project sheets. What better place to put them where I could use them?
Yes, I could have left them on my computer but when you consider that in order to use them on the computer I’d have to utilize space that I would need for crafting… This worked out for me.
An “Idea Book” Can Be What You Want It To Be
I have several Idea Books. One is used to collect quilt block patterns and instructions. Another is used to keep room measurements, color choices, and ideas for design or decoration. Should I really get into gardening, I can create one for that endeavor, too.
Using what you already have is a great way to not spend any money, have a place to gather ideas, and not take up space on your phone. Until, of course, you are ready to tackle those particular projects.
Give it a try and see if it can work for you!
