I've been in "Operation: Purge the Magazines" mode for quite a few months around here. I seem to weed a few out here and there but then more just show up. I have an obscene amount of magazines sitting on my couch and coffee table ottoman at the moment. I typically like to have a few laying around for inspiration and for guests to browse but there comes a time when enough is enough.
I typically dog-ear the pages in magazines that I want to reference later so I can tear them out, pin the information or add the recipe to my recipe binder. When the stacks get too high, I start to get anxiety about the amount of sorting those bookmarked pages will require. That's why I love memo boards--good, ol' fashioned memo boards.
Pinterest is a wonderful thing, but when you have something tangible you want to save (and don't want to clutter your surfaces) a memo board is the way to go. Once you have the board on the wall, adding images, quotes and fabrics is the easy and beautiful part. Here are a few different boards you can buy or better yet, make!
Who is inspired now? I know I am. Now to just decide which one I can add to my office... Then I can finally rid my home of some clutter and make my walls a beautiful backdrop full of inspiration!
