Rather than keep a pile of magazines save only the articles, recipes or ideas you are interested in. Keep them in an accorion file or a stack of loose file folders labeled travel, recipes, decorating ideas or what ever.
Toss out the old magazines or donate to a senior center, dentist office or you may come across an orgaizing saving shiny paper for a project.
Right now my grand daughter and my church are saving shiny paper to recycle for class trips.
I keep my recipes in a file folder next to my cook books, when I want to try a new recipe I have this folder to search through.
