DONE! Sort Through Magazines
I keep magazines in a cute Van Gogh tote so they are handy to whisk out the door for an appointment, kid class, or long ride in the car. I love magazines – flipping through the pages is sort of therapeutic and relaxing for me. I subscribe to a couple decorating magazines and cooking magazines and clip out good recipes, decorating ideas, or fun pictures for the kids to use for collages. My stash was a little out of control, so I carved out a little quiet time to go through the magazines and catalogs and look for ideas.
This is my after picture – I didn’t get through all of my the magazines, I still have a few to peruse the next time I have a few minutes.
I added a couple magazines to the bedside table in the guest bedroom for our next houseguests, made a stack of magazines to pass on, a couple for the kids to cut up and the rest were recycled.
What’s your favorite magazine?
I am a big magazine reader too,
Sadly it is about as much as my attention span can handle these days!:)
I get a lot of them from the library.
I love Country Living, Real Simple, BHG…
Do Pottery Barn Catalogs count??:)
Enjoy the day
I LOVE magazines, and I always have such a hard time parting with them when I’m finished. I’ve started keeping certain magazines (my quilting ones for ideas), tearing out pages of anything else that particularly strikes me, and then forcing myself to recycle as soon as I finish reading!
I love Martha Stewart living and typically make most of the recipes I find in there. I love the pictures also. I also love parenting magazines, sounds corny but I love getting different ideas from them and looking at the products out there.
I like People, BHG, and Real Simple. I love passing on my magazines to friends and sharing….seems like such a waste to just throw them out. What a cute tote bag you have!

Love magazines, too. I think I’m getting a bit too many at the moment, though. I’m going to let some of them lapse. My fave is country living! If I tear any pages out of a magazine for future use, I put them into a file and recycle the magazine.
