The image of a stack of magazines piled up is not appealing to me. It is difficult to see what magazines are available for viewing reducing the liklihood that I will take the time to look at it.
A great alternative storage idea for magazines is to use a ladder. This can either be a ladder specifically designed for magazine storage, or you can repurpose an old wooden ladder.
Displaying magazines in this way makes them a part of the room’s design and draws the eye.
When the new month’s magazine arrives in the mail, simply rotate the stock. Don’t get hung up if you have not read the previous magazine.
