I have to admit it, I love getting magazines in the mail. I only subscribe to two publications and I use them for ‘work’ purposes…o.k…I also like the lovely pictures. I like to have magazines around for a quick break, to get inspired or to decorate a space.
If you need to keep them, then use a magazine holder to keep current (within a year) issues. I like an acrylic holder that you can purchase at Solutions in Canada or The Container Store inlike an acrylic holder that you can purchase at Solutions in Canada or The Container Store in the US (they do ship to Canada too now!). It is clear and holds a lot of issues. It is sleek, modern and can be decorative without having to stick to a particular ‘colour pallet’.
My favourite plastic envelopes are these Globe-Weis ones that you can find at Staples. They are large, see-through and you can zip them up so all the articles don’t fall out. This is one of the organizing products that I use the most. When I am working on a project. I tend to put all the papers, samples and brochures into one of these to keep track. Easy to use, I then toss it into my knapsack when I am working of-site. All my materials neatly ordered.
