All a load of junk

Who picks up the free mags at the end of a supermarket shop? I did and found some good recipes inside. I decided to make this throwaway mag into a junk Autumn recipe book. Two mags were needed for this and all I did was to stick papers over anything that was advertising or not relevant. Here's a comparison of the front covers.

Inside the book I crudely decorated with crafty bits.

Advertising was covered up with note paper ...

… or other recipes which were cut out of the sacrificial mag.

I even covered large advertising pages with interesting articles from another section.

Now I have a recipe book that can be brought out in the autumnal season and added to each year. Not a load of junk after all.



  1. I detect a carry-on from your Filofax blog. Said with a big smile on my face.

  2. What a brilliant idea, I might do the same, x

  3. Such a good idea, there's often some great recipes in those free mags.

  4. Great idea, it saves time not having to copy out those great recipes and gives you a chance to declutter other magazines at the same time.

    God bless.

  5. Clever and practical. Catriona

  6. Now that is a really good idea. I keep promising to put all the recipes in a file but never do.
