OK, I'm finally giving in and getting rid of a collection of Gourmet magazines going back to 1987. I'm going to pull out a few every day and razor out what I might use. They simply take up too much space in a house that doesn't have a lot of storage space. I used to refer to them quite a bit, but there is so much on line nowadays that it's time for them to go.
You might also wish to contact some local elementary schools - many of them use magazines for the little kids to cut pictures out of to make collages or use for flash cards, word associations, spelling, etc.
