    Do you keep old magazines?

    Reading magazines has always been  one of my favorite pass times. Do you still read magazines?

    Yes, I do but in the end I throw them out because I don't read much these days. I love reading magazines like Prima, Essentials, Take a Break, That's Life and any women magazine really. But now I only buy magazine once in a while.

    I rarely read any current mags anymore, but I still have a stash of my old hard rock/heavy metal magazines in my closet that I like to flip thru from time to time. Since I write most of my Hubs on the same subject, I joke that the magazines serve as my "research library." big_smile

      It is true! Information is always needed and old magazines  still play a good part in that role thank you.

    Good question. I don't read as many magazines as I did in the past, but I still enjoy them when I do. I do have a hard time throwing them away, but I don't want to switch to online. I like the glossy, thick paper.

    I still have a couple subscriptions. Sadly, I have a lot of magazines taking up space in my house. I need to purge but can't seem to make the time. One subscription I've had for over 30 years and can't let go yet. It is pathetic.

      janshares, it is not pathetic  to keep on with the subscription. I enjoy reading magazines. Thank you

    Yes and I keep them after reading. Then at the end of the year, I'd bundle them up and donate the stocks to Goodwill thrift store. They are old issues but nevertheless in good condition. I'm pretty sure others will still enjoy them.
