I have a bunch of back issues of Rolling Stone and Wired cluttering up my house. The subscriptions were a "free gift" so I'm not at all attached to the magazines, but I'm reluctant to just chuck them in the recycling bin.<br><br><br><br>
Anyone have ideas for what to do with them?

I don't know but the 3 month old People magazines with the address cut out that people keep leaving around the breakroom at work are really classing the place up.

Would you like to add some Wired and Rolling Stone issues to lend more variety to the collection? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I was going to suggest donating them to the local hospital for the patients, but I'm not sure those are appropriate for a hospital. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"><br><br><br><br>
I work at a Medical Imaging facility (Radiology), so I bring in my mags and leave them in the patient waiting areas.<br><br><br><br>
Actually, they don't want me to leave anything political, and I subscribe to a few political magazines, so those I donate to a certain thrift store. They sell them for 25 cents each, and will always appreciate a variety of magazines.

Do what my dad does. Store thousands of them in boxes and have your son carry them up 3 flights of stairs when you move.<br><br>

Surely, the magazine that inspired <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=58136" target="_blank">this thread</a> is in there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

BPS, you could also give them to charity. Seems kind of like a dump, but I do see a lot of magazines at the goodwill and whenever I'm there tend to quickly look through them for interesting articles (read: pearl jam).<br><br><br><br>
I still, however, stand by the wrapping paper idea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

true story!<br><br><br><br>
when I was in 8th grade I took a PC database class at the JuCo. My "extended learning" class at school had like a million issues of national geographic and the teacher talked me into making a database to index them (I know that is more a spreadsheet thing but at the time lotus 123 had like a 1k file size limit). I was almost done when we found out that national geographic published indices. DAMN

i like that wrapping paper idea, amy.</div>

My family used newspaper as wrapping paper when I grew up (the comics wrapped a special present!). Sure as hell beats spending a bunch of money on paper that just goes into the fireplace anyway.<br><br><br><br>
At least magazine paper is shiny.

Don't throw them out. Rolling stone in particular is a collectable magazine. You could put them on ebay or sell thrm privately to a music enthusiast.

I've got a huge stash of old New Musical Express mags, I should probably flog them on ebay <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You can paste them together and build a nest-looking thing in the corner of your room. Then you can tell visitors that your disturbed and dangerous brother lives in the nest (a la Tooms in the X-Files).
