What would you do with all these books?

I have a laundry basket full of books (magazines, learning activity, etc) I am tired of seeing them in our bedroom but yet I don't want to get rid of them at least not yet. Sometimes I just want my dh to deal with it bc he said he would just throw them away. I think I will go shopping so when I come home that basket with be empty...lol well not really probably a load of clothes will be waiting for me...lol

  • Please don't throw them away. Donate them to a worthy small or large organization. And if its cluttering and you don't use the items go on and do it right away. No point in procrastinating...it'll still be there. :)

  • My cousin just gave me a great idea. She's taking old encyclopedias and mod podging the pages on her living room as wall paper. So if those books have pretty or interesting pictures in them (and you don't mind destroying books) you could rip out the pages that you like and store them for your next decorating project.
