Magazines are another nightmare in the making. I subscribe to so many and at one point kept so many, I was developing a hernia whenever I had to go through them looking for ideas. Now, I only save a couple of my favorite mags in their entirety. The rest, I periodically go through when my stack exceeds 24" high. I remove patterns and articles that I want to retain, put them in transparent binder pages or group them in manila folders and file them away for future reference. The rest of the magazine I toss, which seems wasteful but it's necessary to "cut the cord" or else I wouldn't have room for more fabric and notions.
