Survey: Do You Keep Magazines?

As a designer, I've always held on to magazines for inspiration, and have kept up subscriptions to Dwell and Architectural Record since I began architecture school years ago. Well, because of new remodeling project and at the urging of my fiance, I recently came face-to-face with my collection had to scrap about half of my magazines. I was unhappy about this, but I knew it was time to let go, plus there's so much that can be found online these days. Then I saw another bloggers post about her fantastically organized magazines, and was feeling a little regret...

Former Apartment Therapy contributer, Anh-Minh, recently posted about her newly reorganized magazine collection, thanks to Ikea magazine files. They look great!

But honestly, I just don't have the room for it, and the deeper truth of the matter is that I enjoy looking through magazines a lot more the first round than trying to find something in it later down the road.

What do you do with your magazine subscriptions?
