The effort involved in this week’s challenge will depend on your pack rat tendencies. This week’s goal is to get rid of excess magazines and books that no, you are not going to read.
The Friends of the Library is a great place to donate old books and quality magazines, like National Geographic. Check with aging care facilities and hospitals, too. If you choose to give magazines instead of recycling, be sure to remove your name and mailing address.
If you find that you are a magazine hoarder and always have more magazines than time, let’s start putting a solution to the problem into place. Look at the magazines you have not gotten around to reading and cancel the subscriptions.
