Default How long do you keep magazines until you throw them away?

thanks to AT Hot Deals, I've got so many magazines coming

i keep them thinking i'm going to read them, but then another one comes.

so, when do you throw your magazines away?

edit: so, for those of you who keep them, do you attempt to organize them or just stack 'em up in the corner somewhere?

I keep telling myself to throw them away, but I can't. Back home, I still have copies of various C64 magazines.

to me it really depends on the magaizines...
like sports illustrated (unless its a special issue) gets tossed in a week
PC Mags gets about a 2 week life
Maxim about a month
Programmers journals about a year
Playboy never gets thrown out though...recycled to friends nd relatives sometimes...but i still got issues from 5 years ago when i first started getting them

Default RE: How long do you keep magazines until you throw them away?

Before I met my wife, I never threw a magazine away.

Nowadays, I am lucky if I get to read it before it gets thrown out.
