As these pictures might predict, I'm a magazine junkie. I love flicking through glossy pages of fashion, beauty tips, home decoration, tempting food recipes, health, and financial advice. Moreover, I use these paper covered monthlies as inspiration within most fields.
But because I prefer collecting them as opposed to getting rid of them, my collection tends to pile up.
Still , I had an urge to get some kind of control over the covers, that have seemed to invade a noticeably space of my apartment.
After categorizing my magazines into piles, the "keep-pile", naturally overgrew the "throw-pile", with the "read-through-before-give-way-pile" turning in second.
If you share the equal challenges of throwing magazines, here's my tips to alternative ways of keeping your home from turning into a news stand:
* Tear out the most interesting pages from the magazine and collect them in a scrapbook or a loose-leaf binder categorized after topics (i.e: Fashion, decoration, food, health). This makes it easier to get back to the articles for which you originally was keeping the magazine.
* Hate the idea of your magazines ending up in the bin? Give them away to friends, neighbours, or health institutions for second hand use.
* Make sure to store the ones you want to keep well. Put them in a book shelve (categorized after issues, of course) or put them in dedicated cassettes.
