20 UHeart Organizing: Magazine Management
But organizing magazines is definitely on my list of to do's, and I am feeling even more inspired than ever to tackle that long awaited task, thanks to Ashli's tip that she is here to share today.
Hi, it's me, Ashli from Mini Manor blog again. I am so excited to be sharing today's post with you. It's a simple solution to a common problem, what to do with magazines you want to hang on to.
I don't keep every magazine that finds it's way into my house, but every now and then there's an issue that I can't seen to get rid of. I was getting a bit tired of a stack of magazines on the coffee table . . . especially when it's summer and there's a Christmas decor magazine on the top of the stack.
I found a wood organizer from Homegoods, I believe it was meant for file storage but it fits magazines perfectly.
I organized them by season. I group all of the spring issues together, all the fall, winter and summer seasons together, so when each season rolls around I just grab the issues in that season to find seasonal recipes, or decorating tips.
I printed out some labels, and operation magazine organization is complete!
I love simple organizing solutions that work. I hope you do as well. Storing magazines by season instead of a big stack makes it easier to find what you need when you need it. I store our magazines and all of our books in our library/office . . .
But if we had a dedicated family room I think this would look nice, and make sense there too.
"I’m Ashli from Mini Manor Blog. I live in Big Beautiful British Columbia with my Husband Lee and our 5 lb yorkie Max. I have an organizers heart, I am a bin-aholic, and I’ve never met a wicker basket I didn’t love. During the summer I can be found lounging in the garden or at the gym . . . one of those was a lie. And in the last 5 years I’ve made more then 2000 cupcakes. I want to bake, eat and organize. Hand me some eggs, flour and an unorganized kitchen, that’s my idea of a great weekend, okay go ahead throw Ryan Gosling in there too."
