American Magazine Month

We are all bombarded by paper -- but does anything stack up the way MAGAZINES do? I am amazed at the piles of old periodicals people collect under the assumption that they will "get around to reading them some day." Or better yet -- you find an ARTICLE you like, save the magazine so you can refer to it later, and then forget which magazine the article was in. And trade JOURNALS are the worst! Why do we feel compelled to keep them forever -- even after they have become outdated? So this month, let's concentrate on reducing the piles of periodicals -- both read and unread -- that are cluttering up your home and office.

Some Practical Organizing Tips...

If you find, month after month, that you can't seem to get around to reading a magazine before the next issue comes in -- maybe the information inside isn't that important to you. Consider CANCELING the subscription and saving some money.
Do you have to own every magazine you enjoy reading? Doesn't anyone go to the LIBRARY anymore? At the very least, you could hit your local bookstore, get an espresso, and just flip through the ones you won't read cover-to-cover.
When you find an article you like, have some system for marking the page (a sticky note, paper clip, etc.) Or when you get a new magazine, SKIM the table of contents, find the articles that interest you, and rip them out right then.
