I've seen this done in many daycares. It gives the teachers something to do while the kids are sleep and it also saves them some counter space.

My husband has gobs of cooking magazines and checkout recipe books - this would be an awesome solution for keeping them neat on the bookshelf!

what about glueing wallpaper to the cereal boxes? i got 2 rolls of nice wallpaper for $1 and don't know what to use to glue it to the box? I subscribe to Shape magazine and have a ton of fitness magazines and to help make more space i cut out all the advertising pages(and then recycled of course)! took me many hours but the stack of magazines went from being able to fit 8 magazines to 12 in a cereal box!

Thanks tsp, krazykarot, & casasugar for the details, I'm going to have to look around for one (the green sounds right up my alley!) Casa, I didn't think of using bookends, thanks for the idea; and good to hear that they are holding up nicely. I also have a box of Puffins thats now screaming for a reconstruction... I'll have to find some cute fabric to coordinate with my daughter's room, as she's getting a little collection of magazines that need organizing.

I LOVE the lace basket! That would look super cute in my dorm room! I must have it!

I did that with an old cardboard box as a napkin holder for my table. I covered it with the fabric i used for my placemats and throw pillows and now it matches!

Ha! It's actually the Carrie Shopping Basket ($39). I got it at Zinc Details in San Francisco, and just took off the straps. There is also a Carrie Bicycle Basket ($64), which is the same but has attachments for your bike. The magazine holder seems to be pretty sturdy, but I suppose it varies from box to box, and depending on what magazines you're storing. You could always use bookends.

they are a bike basket! I've seen them in Cambridge as well. From what I've seen (in stores or online) they're quite pricey. Definitely a crave of mine.

i've seen those lacey baskets! if you're in the bay area, there's a place in san carlos called good sage that carries them. they come in green, too. it's "officially" a bike basket, though, right casa?

t3kgirl I was going to say the same thing! That lacey magazine holder is to die for... I do love the idea of reusing cereal boxes, but wonder how sturdy they are? The cardboard doesn't seem heavy enough to hold magazines which when you put a bunch together can be quite hefty.

great idea, but what i'd like to know is where that awesome lace basket came from.
