I have been having a general clear out, well less general more major but of things I can’t bring myself to get rid of is my huge collection of Good Food and Delicious magazine.
Good food magazines date back to post Bex being born yes she is nearly 13. The early ones my Gran gave to me as hand me downs and there the addiction for the magazine began. Recipes seem to have some weird comfort for me, I have torn out recipes in a folder from when I was in my teens, recipes I had collected together with my Mum some I actually made with her and many more I have never even tried. The funny thing is savoury recipes do seem to date and when I look at some they really don’t look appealing at all. So why is it then that sweet recipes always still look super yummy weird hey?
But it still leaves me with the dilemma that I can’t part with them even though realistically I need to thin them down
alot a little bit. My lack of organisation means some of the things I have made in the past are lost within this stash of magazines all lost and recipes made in the past are memories perhaps I want to keep hold of. Or maybe it is just all those recipes that make me want to make them but I just have not got around to it and I still hold out that I will get make them one day.
I also have to admit to the same obsession with Psychologies magazine, not recipes but so much fab information in there I just don’t want to lose. To much to just contain in this little head of mine with all the other junk it has to store!!! Any other magazines I would not give a second glance at passing on to someone or putting it to be recycled.
So suggestions people for the cull of my magazines that won’t be to painful for me. Please be gentle, my eye’s actually pricked with tears as I was contemplating what I was to do, while having to turn away while I popped a few ragged looking one’s in the recycling!!!!
Does anyone else suffer from such things or is it just me?
