(These are a v. stylish friend’s magazine stacks, but the scene is awfully similar to what’s happening at my house.)
I am a magazine junkie.
I subscribe to, buy, borrow (and rarely toss) countless titles, resulting in leaning towers of glossy goodness populating untold corners of my home.
But things are starting to get out of control (think Hoarders: magazine edition), so I’ve been trying to make some order out of the situation. After tearing out my favorite pages, I hesitantly purged about half my collection, but the question of how to store the “keepers” so they’re easy to peruse but still stylishly contained remained.
So I carved out a chunk of the weekend to tackle the issue once and for all. After hitting the Barnes and Noble on Northwest Highway to buy yet more magazines (no really I did, I have a problem), I popped into The Container Store next door in search of my publication corralling panacea.
And friends there it was, sitting there ever so nonchalantly — the (super chic) acrylic magazine slipcase. It’s sleek, simple, transparent (+ the full-open front lets you view the entire spine), tidy… I think this baby just might be the answer.
