Mr. Conductor, if you Pea...
|Posted: 2/23/2013 12:44:01 PM|I tossed about three years' worth (different subscriptions) about seven years ago into the recycling bin. The praise I got from my scrapping friends was well worth it. Little did they know I still had enough of a stash to put my recycling into shame. I haven't bought a scrapping magazine in years, but I've since donated stacks to the library.
I also had a collection of seventeen magazines. I started buying it when I was 13 and stopped collecting when I was... wait for it... 31! I recently purged several years and now only have the 80's to mid 90's in my collection. Hopefully someone at the local library is getting a kick out of them.
Purge your magazines... it feels great!

I haven't looked at mine at all in a LONG time. I was going to go through them, but then decided to take the plunge and just throw them in the recycle bin. Felt great!!

I've been in a big declutterring phase for a few months now. In fact, just today I went through and threw away tons of magazine pages I'd been saving. They dated back to 1997 and I'd never looked at them again. Recycle bin, there they went!
My library takes old magazines. They sell them in their Resale Store and use them for kids' craft days. (But right now, I am mulling over what to do with a 10+ run of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine.)
For books, I usually check Amazon's Trade In program first. I've made a lot of money from books I was going to give away. (Half Price Books is so not worth the time and effort.) If Amazon doesn't want them, I give them to Goodwill and take the tax deduction.

Maybe you could go to the general sb board and someone there would love to have them.
I gave mine to the Senior Center and they were very happy to get them.
