    I had this "problem" when we started packing to move after living in the same house for 21 years. Decided to get rid of the magazines (some dating to before we moved into the house). Went thru, cut out what I wanted; stored in notebooks with plastic inserts. Now I REGRET IT. I miss my magazines. I LOVED looking thru them from time to time. Never again. Someone will just have to throw what I have away when I croak unless want to keep them.

    I agree with this -- knitting patterns as well as quilt patterns. My taste has changed and I am glad I have kept whole magazines. I am also now much more experienced and have thrown out a lot of the really simple ones that I liked in the beginning. I hope you find a way to keep all of them.
    No matter what I keep it takes up less space than the boat and the upkeep is certainly less.

    100 magazines is not a huge amount. Could you keep some of the latest at your place and store some of the others at your parent's house. I wouldn't want to mess up my magazines - tastes change as well as ability and you might want to relook at the magazines later. You don't sound like you really want to get rid of them and scanning can distort. I'd keep them somehow, but then, I am stubborn. Ask my husband.

    You may have to ask for a filing cabinet and put them in folders.

    Why would someone tell someone else to get rid of something that they want I don't understand

    I'd seriously think about getting rid of the husband first.
