If you still like the feel of a magazine in your hand, then you're left with the issue (get it?) of disposing of it once you're done reading. Unless it's worth keeping, you'll need to toss it in the recycling bin so it can be made into another magazine (hopefully). Or, if you're feeling crafty, you can try your hand at any of these awesome ideas to give that old magazine new life:
- You could spend days reading through Always Chrysti's list of over 100 ideas for reusing magazines. It's worth it, though, especially if you want step-by-step guides for ways to turn that magazine into gift wrap or a guitar pick.
- Here are 10 more ideas from Earth911. The most ambitious? Making a table out of old magazines.
- Need another useful idea? Turn those magazines into boot shapers. This may be very helpful, like if your nickname around the house is "Ole Floppy Boots."
Got any other ideas?
