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

    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.

    well I end up keeping them until I move to a new place...so this time when I moved I ended up with stacks and stacks of unorganized magazines (under the bed). Oooops.

    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 :D

    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. :D
