~Spiral Binding~

It's the little things in life that make me happy. Case in point:

Spiral binding!!!!!!!!!

I had the brilliant idea to get my canning book spiral bound. I use this book often throughout the canning season, and it is always a fight to get the book to stay open. A quick call to the copy shop and voila! No more holding the book open with other objects!

It even flips nicely, so I can use up less counter space with my recipe book:

This is the next book to get the beauty treatment:

It cost right around $5 to get it done. I definitely feel like it is worth it for a well-used book. I also think book publishers should take user-friendliness into account. But, when they don't, this is a good option!

Smart idea!

Oooh, I have that canning book (not that I've done anything with it yet). When I was looking through it I was thinking that it seemed kind of unwieldy. That's a great idea! Also, you should include affiliate links for those books because, *ahem* I really want to buy that 2nd book ;-)

Ashley, after three attempts to get the link in the comments, I just scrapped that and edited the post. Link is above. :)

I love taking my cookbooks to FedEx Express and getting them spiral bound. I have that same preserving book but have yet to get that one bound. Cheers to making things easier to use!

I saw another blog that recently had a cookbook bound and I thought, "Why didn't I think of that?!"

I have a cookbook that is going to be spiral bound very soon--can't wait for it to lay flat on my counter!:-)

Mary Ann, I'm sure you'll love it! :) I got the second book spiral bound and it such a pleasure to use it now!
