Some people like bubble baths, some like pedicures, some turn to chocolate to destress. Me? I like them all, but my favorite treat to myself is buying a fun magazine. I enjoy having one in the car while I'm waiting in the carpool line. Doctor running late? No problem! I always make sure I go to my doctor or dentist appts without children. And if it's a really "bummer/no fun at all doctor visit" (you know what I'm talking about ladies) then I always make sure to treat myself before hand to a fun magazine or book to read while I'm waiting precariously on the table. My sister has bought me a few magazine subscriptions for birthdays and Christmas and I love receiving them in the mail each week or month. They're the perfect gift for me. Unfortunately, they're my biggest clutter problem. I hate throwing out expensive magazines and rarely would I read one twice. So lately my sister and a friend of mine have been having a magazine trade. I read them and pass them on & then get a new set. It's been great!
So today on day 8 of our challenge we declutter our magazines and books. Pass them on, donate them or recycle them. Either way, your book shelves and magazine holders and baskets will thank you!
