Project: Magazine Organization...check

At the beginning of the week I knew I wanted to get a few things accomplished on my to-do list, and I'm happy to say that this was one of them!  Organizing my stacks of magazines.  Is it sad to say that rows of labels might put a smile on my face?

I don't have too many tips here, but if you're just getting started, the best thing to do is make piles of your magazines by their titles.  Then move on to putting them in their folders, rather than adding one at a time.  If you're really pushing your Type A label, organize them by date once in their folders.
I made a silly mistake by purchasing round labels and thinking these metal things would just "pop" off and I could replace them.  No shot.  So I printed my round labels and then folded them over to fit.  Super easy.
Some of the titles ended up not making it to the center of the silver label box...might have to go back and reprint those.  By the way...all magazine folders are from Ikea and super cheap.
I've mentioned this before, but this is just a tiny, tiny spot behind my bedroom door. The painted blue lamp made it's way back there...

Another thing on my to-do list? Spend time with these ladies!

Last night we enjoyed the warm summer night on the patio of bar lola sipping a little sangria, and dining on delicious tapas! Love these girls. 
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  2. It kills me to throw away old magazines, I have started ripping out the pages I've turned down and filling a binder. However, I like this much better. No more ripping!

  16. This looks great. So neat + contained and yet totally functional.

    A few of my readers have asked me to write about a solution for magazines, but, instead, I'm just going to point them here!

  20. Amazing how the magazine holders fit perfectly in the shelf. I love that! You are inspiring me to organize my home office!!

  21. Even inexpensive magazine holders look great when there are multiple, identical ones lined up and neatly organized. I've been making an effort to just remove the articles and images that I like and recycle my magazines though. My husband likes to tell me that I could redecorate the entire house for the amount of money I've spend on shelter magazines!

  26. I'm with most of the girls here-it pains me to throw away magazines!!! When i moved to Greece I was forced to give my old collection of Elle & Vogue from 1992-2000 and something to a fashion college... I was traumatized! Of course i kept the x mas editions though!

    Great organization girl!

  27. I have a ton of magazines too and finally "splurged" on similar magazine holders from Container Store- they were on sale, but still kinda pricey. I didn't think to look at Ikea! p.s. and I cherish those fun girl times:)

  31. my, I look so tan in the picture:)

    Bryan insists on pre-approving all of you prescriptions for me. I was ready to run to whole food and he was like "wait, i want to look all of these up first". haha, modern medicine vs. natural healing...the debate is never ending.

  34. I too have these magazine holders from Ikea however, yours look much more delicious than mine. Do you keep a lot of back issues?

    ReplyDelete
