DAY 12 - Magazines

The 24 Things Clearing Challenge 
encourages you to make room in your home, heart, and mind to create an inspired future

Cleaning out my cooking magazine pile inspired me to take a look at that Shelf of Magazines With Potential Cool Ideas in Them That I Might Have the Time to Do or Make or Wear or Buy in the Future. Yeah... those magazines.

Real Simple might be one of my favorites of all time. The "New Uses for Old Things" section is great. The home style is great. The recipes are great. The articles are great. The... well, you get the picture. It takes me a week or more to really comb through each new edition that I receive in the mail, and then I always end up adding the latest one to the ever-growing pile, vowing to go through them at some point. I guess today's that point! There are some gems in there, for sure. And I've cut them out, or ripped out those pages. And they'll go in my desk - hopefully to inspire me to do or make or wear or buy. But the rest of them are going into the recycling bin.

The results of today's letting go: two whole small shelves worth of space from where those magazines used to be; reminders of cool ideas that will hopefully provide future inspiration.
