Use Old Magazines for Gluing

When gluing paper crafts, I find it is easy to get glue all the way to the edges of the paper. Simply get an old, worn-out magazine to absorb the glue that goes past the edge. Then, peel off the glue-applied item and affix it in its permanent place. Now, simply turn that magazine page and you have another fresh surface as a glue-application backing. This way, there is no messy glue cleanup. Simply throw the magazine in the garbage when it is "used up."

Well for that matter you could use pages of old magazines as coasters /placemats.Use phonebook pages to check your oil . maybe emergency toilet paper. Hey don't forget fire starters for kinling.
How about tearing them up and adding them into your flower pots . The regular paper not the mags,
Me I treasure Magazines . I got some 30 year old one. I make scrapbooks from the pictures
