Day 29 – and we’re sorting through your MAGAZINES! To be fair, you might not have the same severe
addiction collection that I do. I am a hopeless fan of decor, gardening and women’s magazines, and have various piles of them all over the house. And yes, I find them hard to get rid of, because “what if I NEED them one day?”
Something that has helped a lot over the past few months, is my habit of folding the top corner of the page when there is something I like. That way, when I am doing a massive clear out or smaller tidy up, I can see at a glance which magazines can be donated (no pages folded down), and which ones to double-check in case there’s a recipe, shop or name I want to reference.
A friend of mine actually stores her magazines by NAME – how organised is that? Her Garden & Home magazines are in neat piles on her coffee table, HOME magazines are in her guest room, and TASTE magazines are in the kitchen.
As you can imagine, there are loads of storage ideas on how to keep your magazines organised and easily accessible. But to be fair, I never really go back and read them. I need to come up with a plan on how to use what I need from each magazine and then donate them immediately to Isabella’s Nursery School. But until I find that perfect solution – here are a few ideas that caught my eye:
