Fast and Easy Frugal Magazine Holder

Okay, why didn't I straighten this up before I took the picture? ANYwhoo, I have some recipe magazines and they were ALL over the place in our butler's pantry making a huge mess. A pig sty as my mom would say. So I made a magazine holder. I saw the idea on a blog back in the day (I'd link to it, but the link has since been broken) to use a cereal box to make it. Which to me is much more reasonable than spending $7 for what is basically a cereal box at the store. I just cut off the top tabs, and then made a diagonal cut on both of the long sides. I used scrapbook paper to cover it, but wrapping paper or even fabric with Mod Podge would probably be a better choice. But my recipe mags are corralled and out of sight. It's the little things, people.

Oh, PS! We purchased a sectional and it's turning into a mini living room makeover. We won't actually receive it for a couple of weeks, but I think it's going to be good. Mostly we are relieved to have actually made a decision. :0) Can't wait to show you!
