I came across a box of old magazines (Martha Stewart Living 2003 and Better Homes and Gardens 2003). Are they worth keeping or should I recycle them?

If schools or libraries don't want them thrift stores may
I wouldnt keep em though, you can look most everything up online in archives for most magazines or your local library online system. You will feel liberated ridding yourself of the weight
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
-donate to a teacher (my mom is a teacher and loves to have old magazines like those for her classroom)
-our local hfs has a magazine exchange, maybe something like that?
-sell them on ebay - someone may collect those mags and want back issues
that's all i can think of at the moment
Veteran's hospitals are another place that accept and need magazines.

i did this with my old magazines and only found that i wanted to keep about 5 pictures per mag. now all those pretty pictures are sitting in one very thin folder in our filing cabinet. and the box of magazines is gone.
