I have so many magazine subscriptions that some months I actually dread going to the post office for my mail. My little mailbox is overstuffed and then I end up with a big old pile on my dining room table. I love perusing the mags, but what to do when it’s time to dispose of them?
I am trying to simplify my life – less clutter, cleaner surfaces, fewer chachkes. Meanwhile, big piles of magazines do little help this mission. But, I hate to just toss them – even into the recycle bin. This bag of mags – all recent – is worth upwards of $100 at the newstand. And you know what?
I CAN’T GIVE THEM AWAY!!!
I offered these not once but twice on my local Freecycle group list. The first respondee promised three times to come get ’em but never did. The second respondee to my first post asked me to let her know if #1 didn’t pick them up. I did, but she never replied. I posted a second time and got an immediate response. But she never picked them up either! Jeez! What’s a girl to do?
What do you do with your magazines?
Oh and btw – if you’re near the South Shore/Cape Cod area and want them – please let me know. But please – pick them up!!!
