Q. My husband keeps a lot of magazines in his home office. Do you have any suggestions for how to organize them?
A. With the help of some basic tools, you can turn your husband’s collection into a working reference library. For starters, you’ll want to invest in some magazine files and three-ring binders. Files are great for storing magazines encyclopedia-style so that they can be referenced easily. You can group the issues by date, topic, season, or however else he wishes to categorize them. Many files have a label holder, so they can be easily marked. You can also place them on shelves or desktops so that the label side is forward, or turned around so the spines of the magazines are showing.
