Organi-Spring Week 1, Task 2: Book Shelves & Magazine Rack

Take a long hard look at your book shelves.  Are there items you haven't read in a while, won't read or do not intend to read again?  What about your magazine rack (or perhaps it's a magazine pile)?  Could someone else enjoy these items?  Consider donating the items you will no longer read to your local library or selling them to a used bookstore.  Or perhaps bring them with you to work to share with your co-workers.  If you find it hard to part with magazines (after all you paid good money for your subscription), tear out the articles that you want to revisit, 3-hole punch and collect them in a 3 ring binder.  

There is a plethora of information about cleaning out your winter guck and letting the spring sunshine into your home, so we're focusing on those little things around the house that will give you a more organized home and perhaps a bit more storage along the way.  Just 4 weeks, 5 tasks per week, around 10 minutes per task and VOILA! in around an hour a week the little things in life seem a bit more organized.
