Throw them out, give them to charity?

I cut my address off of them and bring them up to the library.... they have a bin where you can bring your old mags and dump em in there.  then others can look through and see what they might like to take home and read.  :)  either that... or I recycle :)

I normally only read magazines while I'm waiting at a doctor's appt, so I just leave them behind, minus my address.  If I do happen to get a collection, I drop them off at the peds oncology clinic.  When you are there for a long time, you'll read anything, even a magazine that is 3 yrs old.

I usually give them to my mom or a friend. If nobody wants them I recycle them.

You can donate them to schools sometimes.  I know the younger grades use magazines as a way to learn to cut with scissors

My dad brings me old mags and I use them for craft time with DD. we cut pics out of them and glue to construction paper and then add yarn for hair, googly eyes, draw extra arms, use what ever we have extra lying around to be creative.
