Keep Only What You Need
- A binder makes a good alternative to an expandable folder as an organizational tool for pages you want to save; tear those out, then discard the magazine or catalog.
- If there's a magazine whose issues you haven't so much as cracked the binding on in six months, consider canceling the subscription. If you're inundated with catalogs you have no interest in, call the companies and ask to be taken off their mailing lists.
- Pack up designated discards for recycling day, or donate old magazines to charitable organizations or your local library or hospital.
