collected

I've been collecting magazines for years.
I'm done with it.
I took me 4 weeks to edit 72 interior magazines!
2,3 magazines a day (and a good bunch yesterday).
Ended up with a pile of cuttings I'd like to keep.
Almost never read an article in those magazines,
only looked at pictures.

I used to do that too, but discovered I never had time to look at the cuttings so instead of saving anything I give away the magazines to friends or to the local fea...

compro riviste che sfoglio in ordine inverso, vampirizzando foto e titoli in 2 minuti. poi le lascio decantare in bagno dove, mesi dopo, in assenza d'altro svago, inizio davvero a leggerle.
(una soluzione personale ad un problema diffuso :P)

Hello Britt-Marie, I do look at cuttings, I look at them often, that's why I keep them.
I did give to local charities other collectables magazines such as the world of interiors
I keep the uber nice ones (the one that are more like books than magazines) and the art ones.
The solution is not to buy them ;^)

Elena, e dopo che hanno decantato per mesi (anni?) nel bagno che te ne fai?

barbara said...

dopo averli letti - subito dopo - decido se tenerli o buttarli

Missed this. I do exactly the same ... hang on to them for years before removing the few pages I want to keep. You're right, of course, the best solution is not to buy them.
