I had a blind spot where magazines were concerned. Every month between "Suburban Parent", "Dallas Child", "Frisco Style", "Living", "Natural Awakenings" and all the other magazines that land in my box or that I grab for free, I was becoming quite the magazine hoarder. The problem is I read most of them the first day they are in the house then keep them because there are two or three articles I want to reference in the future for information. This was taking up too much space.
My new plan worked much better. As I'm reading a magazine, I flag articles I want to keep and come back to cut them out when I finish. I made a bulletin board to keep the articles on so they are easy to reference. If the articles are many pages long, I just staple them together and place them in the newly organized file cabinet. This way I can recycle the magazines and not have to find places to put them. Plus, there is a much better chance I'm actually going to look at the articles I was interested in because I know where they are and can see them. Keeping 50 magazines, I never went back and looked at the information I was once interested in.
Overall result: Good and much more practical
Also, just for fun, here's a link to another song on the Asher and Eowyn playlist. It was a Pandora discovery last year, and I love it. It's haunting and perfect and the voices of the singers mesh in a unique style.
