I have been a subscriber to Real Simple magazine for more than five years now, and I have saved every page. I recently counted more than 60 issues in my closet, and I've decided it's time to let them go. Some of you may be horrified, thinking either: 1) Why on earth have you kept them this long? or 2) How can you stand to get rid of them now? Those are both valid responses. =)
It's been like visiting old friends as I thumb back through articles--some that have been referenced numerous times. I am of course tearing some ideas and recipes out as I go, and watching for artsy photos to make "my sister's cards".
My husband has willingly supported my collection, but we'll both appreciate having additional space in our clothes closet. (Why I've stored them there, I can't say--it's just where they ended up.) I think the magazine would approve of this purging, too--after all, their tagline is "life made easier".
Anyone else have a magazine they love? Can you beat my record (more than 62 issues of the same magazine)?!
