I'm trying to clear house a bit. I have a good amount of older cookbooks, the small ones (like the jello ones) and some older magazines. I can't stand the thought of just getting rid of them. Not sure what to do with them. Any suggestions?

Whatever you do, don't throw them away!!!! People like me collect them.

Last week, I was at a sale and I said I wished there were old cookbooks, The woman said she collected them. I said I also collected recipe booklets, and she said she had loads of them. Then her daughter piped up and said she threw them away!!!!! I felt sick for hours thereafter.

I don't want to be self-serving, but... (I also would need to check rules here.)

I am thinking of putting a WANT on Freecycle, but I need to make it clear that I'm not a seller.

Oh, a non-self-serving idea. I wonder whether your library holds book sales and whether they would be interested in them (or whether they'd consider them junk).

Our local (church-run) Thrift Store sells used books, including cookbooks. Perhaps there is something like that in your area?

If no one wants your magazines, perhaps a local school or daycare would like to use them for craft projects.

I have some old one from my mother and aunts. I some find them at garage sales. I have some from my class in Home Economics in the late 50s. Texas Electric always had some good ones.
