I was going to buy plastic boxes to store my magazine collections when I literally stumbled upon wood crates outside a Monoprix, and decided to use these instead. You can get them at outdoor markets or supermarkets - if you can't see any, just ask, as they are usually happy to get rid of them. I am debating whether or not to paint them in bright colors...
The large ones accommodate two stacks of Vogues!
And if you don't keep your magazines, instead of throwing them away, why not drop them off at a local hospital, retirement home or other place where people get really lonely and bored...? Today I'll be leaving stacks of French Elle at the Hôpital Saint-Antoine.
TV Trivia: does anyone know for which hugely popular American TV series some episodes where shot at the Hôpital Saint-Antoine?
