There are lots of ways to save magazines. The only problem is to be able to find that certain article a few years later. Once upon a time I too had hundreds of magazines, but going back to find something was a real pain.
The solution that worked best for me was to cut out an article whenever I saw something I liked, and put the article into my own 'woodworking notebook'. Just purchase an empty notebook, a three ring hole punch, and some dividers. Now when I have some free time it is fun to flip back thru the notebook, and it is amazing how many times you see an article that caught your eye years ago.
If I had kept all the magazines and catalogs that passed thru the shop over the years, they would number in the thousand, I imagine. Instead, the notebook is 3" thick and has enough projects to keep me busy forever.
Just one more solution that worked for me…
