Organized Magazines

There's only a couple more things to do in my office before a tour of the whole room is in order.  Last week, I showed you how I recovered my aqua magazine holders with gift wrap and now I've updated them with bookplate labels. The aqua wasn't quite right for my new color scheme and I'm a huge fan of the Rifle paper I used. 

I'm big on magazines, especially in the summer because I'll take them to the pool, flip through during long cardio sessions at the gym, or for easy reading before bed. Most of my magazines are given to a friend after I read, but I save certain subscriptions, like Oprah, House Beautiful and Martha Stewart Living to keep for future reference.  Now, I've got them all organized and labeled in my office bookshelf.



I bought inexpensive, metal bookplates from Michael's and they are adhesive so they stick right onto the magazine files. I used washi tape (gold dots and stripes) over the labels that came with the bookplates and printed "HB" and "Living" with my labeler.  These bookplates could be spray-painted another color if you wanted something different.


I'm so happy with the result!


Do you keep any of your magazines?  If so, how do you store them?

  4. Mine are in the same magazine holders as yours but nowhere near as pretty (plain white)...and you've just convinced me that I need a label maker. :)

  5. I keep some of mine for reference in similar magazine holders. However, not quite as pretty as yours. Might have to break out the paper and washi tape!

  7. Oh Megan, I'm loving your choice of paper! It's so sophisticated looking. Your office is really coming together beautifully.

    I keep my magazines in uhh...a giant unsorted pile in my bookshelf at the moment. You've inspired me to deal with it, haha!

    By the way, I wrote a review on that Critter Spray Gun you liked. You can see more about it here if you're interested:

  10. I can't wait to see your whole office! I love what I see. Such pretty papers. How nice to have your magazines all organized and labeled. I need to do something with mine. They're in a stack in a closet taking up floor space. I save my Martha Stewart and Cooking Light magazines.

  14. This is a very neat way of organizing all your favorite magazines, Megan! And while you're at it, do you know that you can also do this with your other important files and documents? Piling them all in binders or folders, then labeling them accordingly will make it easier for you to sort them all out and find them easily when you need them.

  15. Great going in organizing your magazines, Megan! Organizing our files or documents is a good way to keep track of them and make sure that nothing is lost. Proper organizing can also protect your magazines from damage. Thanks for sharing, and I wish you luck in future endeavors.
