Get rid of them. If you're like me your style,likes, dislikes, etc. have changed. Also, if I keep paper stuff too long I just start sneezing and get congested trying to look through them. I now go through my magazines every few months and if I really love a pattern I tear those pages out, put them in page protectors, and then into a 3 ring binder. I take the magazines to work to give away. I tell co-workers if they're really interested in the ripped out pages I'll bring those in, too. I also periodically go through the 3 ring binder and cull unwanted items there as well. Feels so much better than being weighed down with all the old magazines collecting dust and taking up needed space.
