Pass on your magazines when you are done to friends and neighbors, instead of throwing them away. When I have a pile of magazines I am done reading, I place them in the mail room where I live for my neighbors to take home and enjoy; many of my other neighbors share their magazines this way too.

Scrapbookers'/ Crafters' Tip~Use old magnetized photo albums to store ideas!
I have at least three or more magnetized photo albums that were bound for the recycling bin til I RECYCLED THEM BY THINKING OF ANOTHER USE! I love to get my scrapbook magazine and get ideas I can use for future pages! However,I don't get ENOUGH ideas to save the magazines-only 1 or 2,so I cut out the idea and post it in the album.I also have a craft idea album ,a recipe album,and a FUN THINGS to DO with the FAMILY album that holds MAP QUEST directions to fun places we like to visit!!!
I have a daily flip calendar on my desk. At the end of the year when I replace the old pages with the new, I clip the old ones together and use them as a note pad on my desk for miscellaneous notes, calls, numbers, whatever. It saves me from using new note pads!
Recycling is good - recycling before recycling is even better 224
I often save news articles and have found that if I don't clip the article immediately, the entire magazine or paper ends up lying around. Clipping it immediately helps me recycle the magazine in a timely fashion and helps me find the article without having to page through the entire magazine.
