Welcome to day #15 of the 30-day organization challenge! The bathroom challenges finished well and we are just about ready to move on to another part of the home! Are you excited about the results you’ve seen so far? But maybe you need more time to catch up. Hopefully today’s “small task” will give you a little of that much needed time. 🙂
Day #15 Challenge – Organize Magazine Rack/Basket
This is probably the easiest and quickest task yet. This is a great task and day to also catch up a little on past tasks. Today’s was only a few minutes – cleaning out and re-organizing the magazines.

I basically just went through the magazine basket and threw the ones we no longer needed in recycle and kept a handful of others. I plan to make magazine holders from cardboard (cereal boxes work too, but cardboard is more sturdy) or even just buy them from IKEA as they are not real expensive, but good and sturdy! I am still working through this as I want a good permanent solution for those extra magazines that we want to keep. The magazine holders work well on book cases and make for great organized storage.
However, our magazine center is now organized!

If you want to learn to make your own magazine holders from cardboard, you can find very good instructions on the Instructables site.
