I also stopped buying magazines many years ago Plinius. I read them at the library now.
So I stopped buying magazines, it was too expensive and I didn´t have to throw them out.
I've found it especially hard to get rid of magazines that promise "Here's a wonderful project you can build when you get around to it!" or "Learn this great piece of music, when you get around to it!"
Magazines are one thing I used to save way too long, but have been getting better at tossing. I've thrown all my old computer magazines, Readers Digests, Consumer Reports, and Consumer Reports on Health in the recycle bin.
I'm also much better at tossing old catalogs. I have a place for them, and when I get a new one, I put the old one in the recycle bin.
Since I became an atheist 20 years ago, I have no problem throwing out all the religious magazines and books as I come across them. That feels so good.
I will admit to being a bit of a packrat as it comes to magazines, in my case, Car and Driver, The Absolute Sound, and Stereophile, especially if they review cars or equipment I either own or hope to own in the future. I'm TRYING to be better about not hanging onto every issue but ... [grumble!]
Have a nice trip Randall!
I'll be driving down to Florida Monday and Tuesday. My first stop will be a McDonalds for their coffee which I like. I'll hang on to my cup for free refills at other McD's all the rest of the way-- and maybe even upon return. I know it's cheating, but justifyable.
Funny "packrat-itis" was mentioned. Just this morning, while in the basement, I looked around to see what should be thrown out. I concluded I'll let the next owners decide! However, I'm not at all like those "collectors" shown on TV's American Pickers. Some are in their nineties and can't get rid of anything.
I see your message!
Packrat.... apart from books it's not so bad, but I must admit, the books are everywhere!
