I pinned before pinning was cool. Ok, so maybe I’m a bit old-schooled! I love to drool over my favorite Décor magazines and tear out the pages that spoke to my heart.
And file them by room!
Admittedly, I was always a bit behind schedule, which cause a bit of a magazine pileup.
Now, with Pinterest, I’m even more behind. Oh the pressure! But such fun!
In honor of Earth Day, I’d like to help out others, like me, who are still addicted to thumbing through favorite décor magazines by providing a few ideas for creative disposal.
Here are four ways to manage your real-life magazine “situation”:
Did you know that according the Magazine Publishers of America, only 20% of magazines are recycled from home? Magazines are 100% recyclable and are now accepted by all curbside recycling programs that collect paper Check your town for specifics. Use Earth911 to find a location to recycle magazines in your area.
- Drop them off at a local doctor’s office or Laundromat for others to enjoy.
- See if residential homes or hospices would be able to use them.
- Use them as material for children’s art projects or school classes.
- Shred them and use as filler when shipping boxes

And for those tough enough to go cold turkey, you can switch to virtual consumption https://www.catalogchoice.org/
But as for me, I plan to pin AND thumb. Now, who can invent more hours in the day?
Has pinning changed how you use magazines?
