This past winter I went thru some of my older magazines. I sticky-noted the pages that had cards or techniques I was still interested in (usually 6 - 8 things per issue) in ONE issue or catalog and then I used the inspiration for 1 or 2 cards. If I just couldn't make something from one of the marked items, I just figured it was a lost cause and moved on. That magazine then went into the garage sale box. Only then did I let myself move on to the next issue. It helped me get rid of some without too many "what if"s.
Of course I'm still accumulating magazines quicker than I'm clearing them out....
Farmwork? Housework? Kids? What about my stamping???
