Are you a magazine subscription junkie?
Can you remember the last time you actually had the time to read one of the many magazines or newspapers that you’ve bought?
Do you have several years of the same catalogs piled high?
This week’s challenge is to…

Organize your Magazines and Newspapers!

This is pretty easy for me because I only subscribe to three magazines (and that’s only because I got a great deal on them) and we don’t get any newspapers.
I get Better Homes and Gardens which is my favorite!

I also like Traditional Home just because I like looking at all the pictures, hehe!

Lastly, I get House Beautiful.

I would LOVE to get more but I don’t even have the time to really read the ones I have now.
After I am done reading them,  I give away, sell at my garage sale or recycle. 
Currently, this is my collection…small, huh?  I just read blogs now, lol!

I saved a couple that I still need to read and a couple other good ones that I like to look at once in a while.

I keep them in my drawer to look at before bed.

Or in my kitchen mail holder for easy access downstairs.
