Default Old Magazines?

What do you do with old card/scrapbooking magazines?

I have a ton of them, and probably could use a triming down of them... But at sometimes $10+ each it seems like a waste?

What have you done with them?

I have most of mine still. If they're not here in my office, they're in a box in the attic. BTW, love your avatar...that's the lady I have on my blog.

I had quite a stack of old magazines and I give them a good home for several years, but then got into the mood that they are wasting space, and I hadn't even gone thru them in ages so I just recently took them all out of storage, went thru them, tore out the stuff I was interested in and recycled the rest. The goal is to file all the things I saved. I just noticed today in going thru my files that they, too need to be weeded out. I have gotten pretty selective about what magazines I subscribe to so I don't have them stacking up and then there is more money for stamping toys! Honestly, I feel this website could almost take the place of most magazines out there in the market today, but that is just me!

I have quite a stack of them. I have started going through them and just cutting out the pages I really like and putting them into a notebook. It is really cutting down on the space.

I get waaaaaaaaay too many magazines, at least in DH's opinion!

Anyway, what I do periodically is Freecycle them. There is always a ton of interest when I post that I'm giving them away. This way, someone else can get some joy out of them. And, one of the times I did that, I met someone who became one of my best customers!

I tear out the pages with ideas that I like and put them in plastic 3 ring binder protectors. I keep them in a big black binder. It is awesome because it is the best of best samples, tips, and techniques with no advertisments. Although who am I kidding, I LOVE the advertisments too.

Well honestly, you just hit on why I NEVER buy stamping magazines. I've bought a couple, and really like looking through them, but I can get just as many ideas and templates here.

So everytime I want a stamp magazine, I remind myself that I don't NEED it- and I'd rather have stamps.

yeah, I know. That didn't answer your question at all- sorry

I cut out all the things I want to save. But I don't get that many anymore. I agree this site has pretty much everything you would want to help you in your stamping.

I do have to admit, I like to get the mags for the ads sometimes. I like to see what is new out there from time to time. One of my favorites has always been Rubber Stamper. I think partly because they feature stampers rooms in the back. It's fun to see how other people arrange their stashes and supplies and where they play with their stamps.

I do the same thing. After I cut them out, I glue them on copy paper and put them in page protectors in a 3 ring binder. That way, when I'm flipping through them, I'm not ruining them. (Ok, so maybe it's also because I have an English minor and worked in a library....) I find that I use them more this way, because the stuff I'm interested in is all in one place.

Before we moved last time I took an armful of magazine to stamp club and let he ladies take them!

Another thing I did 2 moves ago was to donate my stamping mags to the library used book sale. They were gone 2 hours after the sale opened (I checked!) I know they were in the sale because my friend worked it and said they were scooped up quick!

I know a lot of you are going to say this is too much trouble and work and it probably is, but here goes. I'm thinking of going through my magazines and marking the pages that interest me with post-its, then scanning the articles into my computer and burning them on a disk. Then I can still sell the magazines, there won't be the paper clutter and all my ideas will be on a disk if I want to access them later or I could still print them up if I wanted a hard copy. The other benefit is that sometimes there is something on both sides of a page that I want and I don't have to separate it this way.
