Food magazines weighing down shelves-- what to do?

Anne H | Sep 22, 2006 10:05 PM

So reading about everybody's favorite magazines made me want to go out and buy more, but my shelves are already full! What do you do with old magazines: keep them all, tear out the recipes you make and file them (or something), toss them all except for your favorites, donate them to the rummage (would they take them?)?

I used to be able to set my hands on a recipe because I would remember it was in the CI with the squash on front, or whatever, but now I have too many and I'm having trouble finding things, in addition to having full shelves.

I think I should tear out what I want, but my memory is very bad, and after a year or two, I could happily reread an issue and think it was new, so why toss it?

My basement is full, so don't even think about suggesting that.

What do you do?
