MAGAZINES = CLUTTER

Magazines:

too many magazines 5-11.jpg

OK so here is another area that creates problems and thus clutter. It’s magazines.

Is this you?

  • Is your problem is too many magazines?
  • Do you find that you don’t have enough time to read them all?
    Or this is my favorite:
  • You think that you’ll get to them one day.

What is the solution?

Easy, you need to let them go.

How? Try one of these.

  • If you want to keep them then use the rule of 3: What is the rule of 3 you ask? Only keep 3 issues.
  • My neighbor and I have a deal, when one of us finishes a magazine we put it on the fence and send the other a text letting them know it’s there. Then it gets passed on and enjoyed by someone else.

No? Your neighbor is not into the same magazines as you?

OK. How many times have you been in a waiting room and the magazines are OLD, OUTDATED or nothing you would be interested in?

Help is on the way…

  • Donate old magazines to Dr.’s offices or any other place where people wait. Just be sure to take your name and address off the magazines.
  • Of course there is always technology. Sign up for the online version of your favorite magazine. No clutter at home!

Remember all information in the magazines is repeated and rehashed year after year. So don’t keep a magazine thinking you are going to miss the information in it. Sooner or later it will be repeated. If not you can find it online.

So let go!

  1. I stopped getting magazines because I never got around to reading them. Now that I blog, I definitely have less time than ever to read printed material.
    Another good idea for recycling current magazines is nursing homes.

  2. I’m so anal, I can only subscribe to 2 publications, one monthly, one bi-monthly. Since I read every word, front to back, more than these 2 would bury me. The goal is to always have the last issue read before the next arrives. Since the monthly is a literary mag with NO ADS, that doesn’t always happen. I used to save my Sun Magazines and donate them to prisons or the library. But recently I realized, they are also online and there is no room for them at these places, so with great regret, I put them all into the recycle bin after finishing them. 😦

  3. Great suggestions. I typically only buy magazines when I’m going to fly. That way I get to read them, and leave them on a table for someone else to grab up. I hadn’t thought about taking them to the doctor’s office. My doctors stay pretty current though. Besides, it’s the catalogues that give me the most fits. I throw them away all year [did try to cancel], but the phone clerks come up with excuses for making this almost impossible. Now I bin them until I see one I’d like to ogle, or need to buy from. Then it’s gone. Frankly, I’m surprised so many still arrive by mail. Poor trees!!!
