Magazine

I'm selling an old copy of Gay Times on ebay.

What do you do with your old magazines, dear reader? Throw them out? Recycle them? Sell them?

I'm not miserly, really I'm not. Selling is a form of recycling and this eases my conscience.

I tend to be a packrat but I'm trying to divest myself of this nasty habit so I've been throwing a lot more away lately. But God likes to laugh at me and about two weeks after I've thrown away something that I haven't touched in five years, I suddenly find a use for it. It's a good laugh.

I tend to hold on to my Bon Appetit magazines for the recipes and I keep promising myself (once school is done) that I'm going through them, photocopying the recipes I want, and then chucking the lot of them.

Seems you're going for a minimalist approach to life, Brian. I'm trying, too.

It's not easy, though. Lots of my junk has huge sentimental value.

I used to hoard magazines, but I chuck 'em in the recycling bin now after a few weeks. Years of Q, Gay Times, Attitude etc all gone!

Do people actually buy single random copies like that on eBay?

Minge said...

They do! You wouldn't believe it!

Madness, I tell you!

And are you charging a fiver to post to Europe? Do people pay this too? Holy moly!

Minge said...

They pay it, sure! I guess if you're mad for an artist, singer, whoever, and they've been in a certain mag, and you've missed it, you'll pay anything to get hold of it!

Total fanwank!
