The other thing you can do is go back to Double Sided, but make sure 
your content doesn't spill across to the page next to it.

For example, let's say you have an image going into the bleed area from 
the left page. If your image frame is set to Set to Frame Size, switch 
to Free Scaling, then reduce the width of the frame in XYZ so that it no 
longer spills over past the bleed. You could also crop the image, but 
that is more time-consuming.
