How to Store Magazines You Want to Keep

Magazine File

I remember taking study breaks at the public library when I was in middle school to read through the old bound copies of Seventeen magazine from  the 1970s and 1980s that the main branch kept. Each year was bound into a green hardcover book, and I could have spent hours procrastinating that way.

Thankfully, there is a company called Denver Bookbinding that will actually bind the magazines you’ve saved (especially some of those now defunct ones whose issues you just can’t bear to part with) in just about any color of book you want. While it might not be right for the casual collector, if you are looking for ways to keep an archive of your favorite magazines, it’s a solid option.

If you’re looking to save specific ideas, consider creating tear sheets, scanning pages, or looking for the tips online and adding them to a dedicated Pinterest board. Get more storage tips for everything in your house.

    Great idea. I can’t seem to get rid of my Real Simple back issues!

    I read of a really neat idea a while ago about stacking old magazines on top of each other to create a kind of “stand” or “shelf” for something (ie: TV, picture display, etc.).

    That is the simplest idea and it looks fantastic! Going to be doing this for sure.
