    I limit my magazine collection to 12 issues. I don't see the point of keeping a lot of magazines. It will become overwhelming after a few years.
    Got fabric?

    How about using your empty soap boxes (Cheer or Tide). Cut one side down and they fit real well.

    I scan the pages, how-tos, patterns and templates into a folder in Documents called Quilting/Magazines/ and then a folder called by the pattern or how-to name. Very easy to browse and by adding tags to the filenames, easy to find a specific item. Then I donate the magazines to the library's annual sale. Works for me.

    I like this idea. My favorites change and the paper clips are on all the wrong pages when I thumb through my magazines again. Just can't part with them, boxed up about 80 a few weeks ago......just couldn't let go!

    I make a copy of the photo of quilts I want to make in the magazines and put them in plastic protective sheets and then in a 3 ring binder. I write on the photo what magazine it is from and what page it is on. It makes for a wonderful eye candy just to page through.

    I then bundle up the magazines according to their name and year. I tie them with yarn and put a little note as to what is contained in the bundle so when I want to look for a certain quilt it is quick. I have the bundles on the shelf in my bedroom but plan on putting them in under-the-bed containers when my hubby gets around to putting in a second clothing bar in my closet.

    I too used to use the plasticmagazine holders, but got frustrated trying to find what I needed. So, I got plastic hanging file holders with holes on each side for carrying. Then I went to thrift stores and yard sales & bought handing file folders-you know, the green ones---I place the folder inside the magazine center and hang them--each brand has its own holder and it keeps the magazines from getting torn or bent..when I need one, I just thumb through them. I have a book listing all the issues I keep and what quilts in each one that I liked. Makes it so much easier.
