Do you have a bunch of magazines? This is the best way to store old magazines. And here’s how to tell which ones to keep. Plus, I share my magazine rule.
Which Ones to Keep
Ask yourself, is this available to me elsewhere? Like at the local library or as a digital magazine?
My 1 Year Magazine Rule
I keep one year of my favorite cooking magazine. That’s because I am always going back to them for inspiration and recipes. I also find that I like reviewing the full menu ideas for seasonal celebrations. But I only need one year because each year they come out with new info. All the others get recycled when the new one arrives in the mail.
Is Your Magazine Valuable?
If you think you have a magazine that might have re-sale value, search GoAntiques.
Yes, You Can Donate or Share Magazines
Many laundromats let you leave them for patrons to read while their laundry washes. Also, many organizations accept them for donation.
Test Out Stopping the Subscription
Call Customer Service to pause your subscription. If you miss the magazine, re-start it. If not, let the subscription run out or change the mailing address to someone who wants to read it.
