Where do you put all your favorite magazines?

My biggest problem is getting rid of cooking & health magazines. Do you cut out favorite recipes or health articles or save the whole magazine. Now that ds is back home he has taken over the den where I kept every thing. With no basement every space counts.

Exactly, Sueanne, I tend to get a little overwhelmed with collections of magazines from time to time, so I do nip-out favourites in the way of recipes before thrifting the magazines to second-hand stores, etc.

As for magazines I cherish, we have a built-in bookshelf just off our living room that serves nicely in keeping my magazine purchases/collection neatly organized, and because I love reading, it's always nice to have a stash of magazines ready at hand for those rainy and cold days.

Homes and Gardening top my list as favourite magazine reads. I loose myself when it comes to all things gardening and homes.

My ds did the same thing to us. I did go through my magazines and clipped out the parts that interested me. The recipes went in a binder and the crafty things went to my craft room in a box. *not fully organized there yet. The magazines I wanted to keep are divided. Ones I use regularly are on a table in the living room for everyone to enjoy, the rest are in an old wooden suitcase that looks great under my reading chair. I know where they are, and can get them any time I want.
We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

My cooking magazines are in plastic sleeves in binders, the others I clip out what I want and save it in binders. I have discontinued so many magazines just because I don't have room to keep saving them. My sewing/ craft corner has shelves on one whole wall and 2 bookcases and they are full! lol

Good morning all!!

I also have a wall with book shelves over my desk area and 3 horizontal file cabinets (for yarn). It is pretty much divided equally between crochet books /cookbooks and it full. I am always going through the collection and pulling out just one recipe here and there, or a crochet pattern here and there (copying) and then giving the book to the library. Mine has a section for freebies, and even though some of the books cost me a pretty penny when I was younger, my tastes in what I am going to make from this point in time into the future (crochet and food) has changed.

I am also single and realize what a burden it would be on my nephew and his wife to clean out such a large stash and I am afraid that I wouldn't like it too much if they just tossed it all.

So I am trying to be responsible and donate things now.

I am also doing that with my big pots and pans in the kitchen. Now that I don't feed my dn any longer (and his father too) nightly, I am downsizing in that area too. Things I don't think I will use again, are going to my dn's wife so she can use them now, as well as later. My sister just took her a large stash of tupperware bowls and cake keepers, etc. over the weekend.

Take care all!! Norma

I really downsized when we moved to pour retirement home, but you'd never know it now! lol I occasionally still cook for a large crowd so can't downsize in kitchen items and that is basically my largest collection! Just redid my pantry for winter (which also houses my small appliances).

I'm just glad I won't be here when the boys have to clean out my house! I've told them often enough to call in an auctioneer when they have what they want! They might as well make some money off the stuff! lol
