Where can I find old magazines for cheap?

I am a preschool teacher and I am constantly needing old magazines to cut out pictures for art projects, pictures for examples, etc. Parenting and children's magazines work the best for what I am needing. Where can I find them for cheap? I asked at a doctor's office but by the time they are finished with them, they are too worn out and torn up for what I am needing them for.

  • Thrift stores. They might sell you a whole bundle of them for a buck. Just call and see. They are not big sellers so they would be glad to get rid of them. Since you are a teacher they may donate them to you.

  • I work at a thrift store and you would not believe the amount of magazines that come in......call your local thrift store and tell them you need magazines and they will set them aside for you.

  • I would ask the local public library. Ours puts out stacks of old ones that are free for taking.

  • I would try the local hospital, library, or maybe sending a note home with the kids requesting magazines from the parents. I send alot of my old magazines to school with my son, or drop them off a the local hospital. Good luck!
