[How To] Organize Magazines

As someone who loves fashion, I have collected tons of magazines over the years. Unfortunately, even after I've finished reading them, these magazines take up a lot of space and weigh a ton. In order to create more room and get organized, I have started keeping only my favorites (September Issues, anyone?) and only keeping pages of my favorite articles and editorial photos. Here's how I organize all of these magazine tears:
You will need:
Magazines or page tears to organize
X-acto knife
Clear page protectors (I have often found these at dollar stores!) or 3-hole punch
First, find the pages you want to keep. Use an X-acto knife to carefully cut them out. Make sure you recycle your leftover magazine pages!
Sort your pages into piles by subject as you go. I keep all of my fashion photos and favorite ads together in one binder, and I sort articles by subject, season, or holiday into another binder.
Label your dividers and add your pages to your binder. For fashion spreads, I try to use page protectors (unless they are too large, like pages from Nylon! Boo hoo) in case I want to scan the images or use them for another project later. For articles, I just use a hole punch.

Now your magazine pages are easily accessible for reference or inspiration, like Pinterest in physical form! Do you save pages from magazines? How do you organize them? Leave a comment and let me know!
