3 Tips to Keep Magazines Organized

How many magazines subscriptions do you have? Too many? Here are some ideas on ways to keep your magazine piles from taking over.

1. Cancel subscriptions. Sometimes you receive magazines by default, meaning you didn’t order them. Do you really want something you didn’t order? Take a moment to cancel them. Receive only what you want in the mail.

2. Share magazines. Make a deal with a neighbor or a family member to share a subscription. I used to do this with my mom. After she read her “People” magazine, she would pass it on to me. It didn’t matter that the news was a week old. We reduced the cost of the subscription in half and reduced our clutter.

3. Rip and Read. Do you really need the whole magazine? All the ads and extras? One magazine I read each month usually has only about 2 dozen pages that I am interested in. I rip those pages out, tuck them into a file folder and slip them into my bag. That way I always have some quick reading available without carrying around the whole magazine.
