What do you do with all of your magazines?

Asked by helena (239points) August 3rd, 2007

I get lots of mags and they really pile up! How do you handle/organize your leisure reading stacks? And what do you do when you're done? With all that glossy print, are they recyclable...?

My town does collect glossy as well as regular papers for recycling... you'll have to contact your Municipal Utilities office to find out.

I almost never read magazines anymore because I can get the info I want and need online, so I am trying to cancel my subscriptions to save on paper and the junk mail that those subscriptions seem to generate.

I donate my magazines and my daughter's magazines to the Women's shelter. My mother also donates all of her paperback books to the shelter. The women really love them!

I give them away to friends and family to enjoy, sometimes I even just give them away to people who look like they need something to do.

This is an article called "39 ways to live and not merely exist":
http://www.dumblittleman.com/2007/06/39-ways-to-live-and-not-merely-exist.html

It advises to quit reading magazines. That's what I did, and it worked marvelously. It saved me lots of time, which I can spend going to movies, reading books, browsing the internet, writing freelance articles and doing other stuff I love doing. Magazines are worthless. Quit reading them!

Friends and family. If they don't need, its nice to donate at a local cancer center where people can read while receiving chemo.

I read 'zines only at the public library now. The few I still get I donate to them or the staged care or assisted living for senior citizens.

I dump them all in the recycling bin! Most are unread. I've tried to discontinue them--even moved and hoped to be rid of them. Didn't work!

I let them stack up until some one dumps them out.

I’ve always just recycled them.
