    I haven’t gotten rid of any bridal magazines yet, but when I do I will probably do what I did with my early teen magazines. Donate them to libraries, secondhand bookstores, Lifeline, etc.

    @JackiBean:  I suggest donating them to the local pre-school or kindergarten (or any nieces/nephews). Kids love cutting magazines out.

    @JackiBean:  Mine were given to me by a friend who had just got married. I did the same and passed them on. The only problem with that is that if you see things you like, they’re often out of date by then, but still fun to look at.

    Recycling paper is generally not as worthwhile as recycling other products (Especially aluminum) due to chemical pollutants and water pollutants. I’d probably burn them or give them to kids to cut up and draw on.

    I voted pitch them but that was before I saw you can’t recycle them. So I say burn them, or donate them to a school – teachers a re always looking for magazines the kids can cut up

    I vote put them on the “Free” section of Craigslist!

    There’s another engaged girl out there just DYING for them!

    The free section of Craigslist or Freecycle! Someone will snatch them right up!


    I am also surprised like the other bee that Hawaii doesn’t recycle paper – how weird?!

    I passed some onto friends, and put a free listing on Craigslist-they were snatched up within a couple of days.

    @JackiBean:  I would probably turn them into a craft but I’m a crafty person.  Alternately I would burn them!

    OR you could donate them to some office waiting rooms!

    I have 5 or 6 and I’ll just throw them out. Honestly they were useless anyway, it’s mostly all ads. And they all have the same dress pictures.

    Used Mags I either Recycle in my Black Box here…

    OR do what people did for eons before there were Local Recycling Programs… find a way for someone else to get use out of them / enjoy them.

    Hospitals / Clinic – or your Neighbourhood Dr / Dentist even

    I find that all of these are always in need of some NEW Material… when you are in situation where you have to sit & wait, having some interesting reading material is a God send.  A gently used magazine can truly make someone’s day in these places.

    Hope this helps,
