I am an avid reader and I keep a lot of books and referrence magazines. I'm not a pack rat becaue I do recycle my reading material but I keep many too. I actually do go back to the ones I save when I need to refresh myself on an article. However, I can never keep them organized. My books I have on bookshelves but the magazines I have no clue what to do with them. I think I need another book shelf but I really do not have the floor space for one. Any other suggestions for storage?

I keep our magazines in a basket. About every month I go through them. I bring the ones we have read to the library. There is a magazine swap there, The ones I know I will need to refer to in time I keep on the bottom of the basket. Good Luck.

MY boys collect The Simpsons comics and store them in some files which I received some work documents in which look a bit like this. They are sturdy enough to keep on the floor or fit easily on a tall shelf.

I keep mine in cardboard magazine files from Ikea on a shelf in the garage. I don't keep much- certain home decorating magazines (we are planning a remodel) and about a year's worth of a cooking magazine. Other articles I tear out and file, rather than keeping the whole magazine.

I like the magazine files, too. The cardboard ones are cheap and fit on most bookshelves. I get mine at an office supply store. The plastic kind last longer and are easier to keep clean, but cost more. I usually tear out individual articles and keep them in a binder, but I keep whole cooking mags and a very few others (Mothering, natch, and Bust and Natural Home).

I do the same thing, keep my favorite home type magazines in those magazine boxes in the basement shelf and then for other magazines, I just tear out what I'm interested in, stick it in a binder instead of keeping the entire magazine.
