I organize them in magazine holders, but I don't really have the room to store them. I hate to part with them, but I don't find myself using them either. I wish I had the time to photograph and organize them like MsDixie is organizing her stamp inventory, but I don't.
I'm conflicted about storing them in the attic until I have time to do something constructive with them or giving them away to a school/day care.
I, too, had a pretty large stash of reference magazines & catalogs. I found that my style - and the craft - had changed over the years and the older publications were really no longer useful. I donated them to a local senior citizen craft group. It felt great to clean out!
