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!!

recycle them, for all the reasons already posted. Then, if you don't already, get a Pinterest account for saving ideas and layouts electronically!

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.
