Cleaning house

I've been on a very slow cleaning spree the past few months.
De-cluttering as much as The Mister and The Boy will allow.  Which is not as much as I'd like.

One area of clutter that is completely my fault is my cookbooks, notebooks, and loose recipes.
I've long pretended it wasn't out of control, but I was up to 19 notebooks and binders of recipes, plus a large shoebox full of loose pages.  Too much!

It took me a few days, but I went through each page. 

I saved my favorite recipes, family recipes. Also recipes that I know I would really like to try. 
The rest got recycled, and I now have enough paper to fill maybe 2 binders.

I feel good about it!  And I have an entire shelf open to fill with new crap.
