"Glossy Situation" Update!


You might remember not too long ago I posted about magazine organization. I got a lot of great comments from readers who seem to have the same problem with hoarding magazines (thank goodness).

Well, I thought I'd give a quick update on some progress I've made in that area ('cuz I know you've just been dying to find out). The other day I was at Wal-Mart and ran across some magazine holders that were marked down (err... "rolled back") from $6 to $4.50 each. Not bad, considering the prices I've seen of some other fancy mag holders! There were only 4 brown ones left, so I just grabbed 'em all. I figured it was meant to be.

So instead of baskets overflowing with stacks of magazines that you have to dig through....

I now have these handy-dandy holders in our living room, guest bedroom, and office. 

Such a simple change, but I feel so much more organized! But once all my new holders get full, I might have to force myself to recycle some old issues (only tearing out and saving articles that really interest me, as some people suggested).

Hooray for specialized storage solutions!

Hey, don't say I didn't warn you this post was gonna be a boring one :)

Your new magazine holders look very nice and organized. I love/hate Walmart.

Hey, every post can't be a stunner or we wouldn't have jobs and lives! haha

My magazines are everywhere. Don't tell anyone.

Great solution! I do have to admit, I did like some of them in the basket still. Maybe you could use that idea in another room. But this idea is great for people (like me) who have quite a few magazines lying around.

Cute, I like how you can add labels to them!

Oh, don't throw them away! Just buy a bookcase to store them all in (hahaha) - that's what I did..

I have a "magazine problem" as well. I really do need to do what everyone says and just immediately rip out the articles I like and put them in a binder. But yours look so great in those holders!
