magazines in general I save....
but I am trying to reform (as I don't have the room) and am going through them and tearing out the pages that I want to keep, including recipes. The mags I will bring to the library as they have a table for "freebie" magazines. I pick up a lot of mine there too! plus thrift stores.
still have some mags that I will save in whole....

Now I have to find some way to store the pages besides throwing in a box... the organized side of me says 3-hole binder in plastic sleeves, but the frugal side of me says watch the cost-those plastic sleeves can add up.
so, for now, they're in boxes

Thanks! the downside to that is I probably take more than I donate vicious cycle.....
the library used to put out their older mags, but haven't seen any lately - I'll have to ask. gourmet, bon appetit. whole years worth. I think they keep 5 or 6 years on the shelf, then get rid of the oldest.

I don't subscribe to any cooking magazines presently, but when I did, I often bought the annual hardcover editions and then threw out the mags. Otherwise, my magazine philosophy in general is to keep just the recent year's worth. Maybe if I didn't collect cookbooks with such abandon, I would keep more mags around.

I never could bring myself to tear a recipe out and throw the magazine away.
I would love to just look at the advertisements from those magazines. That was what prompted me to purchase the magazines from the 1890s! The ads are so unusual!

We've got stacks of them with recipes that we want to try, but never remember to.

I think the oldest recipes in the house are in a small bartenders recipe book I have, it dates from just after the repeal of prohibition. (Yes, they are most all for drinks).

How did you come by that book??

At some point in my life, my living space will be inundated with cooking/reading material and I'll be confined to a small corner....
