If you are anything like me, you hoard magazines! Whether it’s fashion or business. Now with iPad versions of magazines, you may not need to keep all of these magazines. Here are some great ways to recycle and reuse magazines.
Roll It Up
You can take your old magazine and roll it up into your Uggs! This will keep the struture of the boot so it doesn’t slouch on one side!
Pin It Up
Take your favorite clippings from your magazines and put them on corkboard. You can mix them with real photographs of your family and friends. On mine, I have my graduation tassel, tickets, and thank you cards! It’s like a real-life pinterest board!
Throw It Down
Now that you put some of the magazine clippings on the board, you can place the rest in your drawers as liners! Every time you pick up your sports bra, you see a photo that inspires you!
Hang It Up
Elle and Vogue have the best covers (in my opinion). Another great way to use the whole magazine is to get some inexpensive frames (I got this one as a set of 3 from Michael’s) and cut the cover to fit the frame. After that, hang it up! If you get sick of the cover – don’t fret. Just swap it out!
These tips will give some cool ways to decorate your dorm or apartment and look chic while doing it.
