Take Out Menu Organization

I used to have a junk drawer that was stuffed full of take-out menus.  And we could never find the ones we wanted when we wanted them.

Enter the binder:

But just putting them into the binder is not the secret of my fabulous method.  I cut them up if necessary to fit and then I put each one into a plastic sleeve.

“But why do that, Jen?  Why not just punch holes in them?” you ask.  Well, let me tell you.  I keep a dry erase marker in the binder’s front pocket.  Then I circle everything we want so I can just read it off while ordering.  The marker wipes away clean after I’ve ordered.

And that is what we got for dinner last week.  🙂
