WFMW- Fun Recycling!

Do you recycle? I thought I would share a fun way that I have started recycling my magazines. I used to accumulate piles of old magazines saving them for garage sales until I got tired of the accumulation, not to mention they are heavy to move around. Most of my subscriptions have come from supporting children at school selling them for fund raisers. I have let most of them expire with the exception of a couple. One of my favorite magazines was cancelled and now they have replaced it with Family Circle and those come at least twice a month. I really wanted to share these because purchasing magazines at the store can be very costly, so this is what I have come up with:
Once or twice a month I collect all of the old magazines. One of my BF I know does not often purchase magazines. I have started bundling them up with a ribbon tied around them and delivering them to her. She is delighted! I feel so much better by just giving them away to someone I know is enjoying them all over.
What are some fun ways that you recycle?

Great idea! Very often if I have a friend that's under the weather, I pack up some magazines and take them to her.

What a great thing to do! I love magazines, especially if they have houses, boats, airplanes, or islands in them!

And the ribbon is such a classy touch!

That's a great idea! I would sure love some of those "Romantic Homes" handmedowns, lol! My sil loves that magazine but she lives to far away.

JAckie, this is a great idea! Our high school collects them and uses them for projects also!

Hugs!

What a great idea! I like to take magazines to my mom. I'll start tying them up in a ribbon, too. :) Hope everything is well with you!

I love this idea. I do often trade magazines w/my sisters. Packing them up with a pretty ribbon would make it all the more better!

Hope your daughter is feeling better.

Great idea, Jackie! I usually just toss mine in the recycling bin, but I might have to rethink that now.

This is a fun idea! I usually just tear the articles that I want to save out of the magazine and throw the rest in the recycle bin.

I take my to the doctor's waiting rooms. It is not a fancy doctor's office where they subscribe for their patients but one that serves military and former military etc.
