I am a free magazine fan! I love family related free magazines because they tend to have coupons occasionally! :) If I can't use them I take them to work and we use them for projects. There are fun games yo can do with magazines like scavenger hunts or making collages.
I also keep a binder with sheet protectors in case a article catches my eye, I just rip out the pages and put them in the binder then do what I want with the rest of the magazine.
