I have one magazine subscription -- The New Yorker which I get at a special rate of $20/year. I read it on the subway but if there's a long interesting article which takes me many subway trips I don't dip into the next one before the subsequent one comes. I have a rule (which I don't always follow) that NYers older than 6 weeks are not allowed in the apartment. Out they go.There are a few catalogues I depend on -- Lands End, Eddie Bauer, LL Bean. I like to look at the Pottery Barn catalogue, but don't buy anything since their outlet store moved to the suburbs. I have a basket (catalogue sized) on the floor by the front door into which I drop all other catalogues (unread) -- when the stack reaches about 4 inches (it doesn't take long) I tie them up and put them out for recycling. I would rather not have the catalogues at all, but I try not to get involved in battles which I can't win.I have an addiction to decorating books and magazines, but don't subscribe to any. However, I have a neighbor who's with an ad agency so he gets a lot of comp magazines (he also likes the decorating ones) so when I go to the trash room and find a stack, I simply can't resist dragging them into the house. I try (but don't always succeed) to look at the pretty pictures and get them out quickly.I had an aunt who was a compulsive housekeeper. She made everybody (including herself) unhappy. But sometimes I wish I'd inherited just a wee bit of her compulsion.>^..^<
