Step Into Our Magazine Rack

November 25, 2010 at 10:05 am 2 comments

Why is it so hard to get rid of magazines?!

They’re expensive; printed art (in some cases); resources we promise ourselves we’ll refer to at a later date (and sometimes do!); recipe books; design books; haircut and style references; future reading material we promise ourselves we’ll get to (and most times don’t!); exercise manuals; collectors editions (see last week’s post); and much, much, more.

Learn to edit by reading magazines online (most magazines have their own website and ezines are fantastic substitutes), avoiding subscription and last minute purchase traps, and by trusting you will always have online-access to the article/material you’re seeking (for rare magazines and collector items, store and file appropriately using our storage ideas below).

Magazine containers make perfect storage solutions.  Add labels and tags for easier access.

Things you can do with old magazines:

–  swap with friends & family

–  donate to local organizations with waiting areas (offices and shelters)

–  use as wrapping paper!

–  give to kids for collage making

    I’m forcing my mother to read this post – she’s collected every edition of The New Yorker since 1981. It is hard to get rid of magazines – especially literary journals. I think trusting that the information can be found online is essential.

    I’ll have her call you!
