I found an old American Girl magazine during our last move. One blurb mentioned an easy way to repurpose discarded cereal boxes to store magazines. I happened to have a lot of DJ (Discipleship Journal) issues that, up until then, were kept in one of those plastic three-tiered wheely carts. Needless to say, the pile was unwieldy and made it difficult to locate a particular issue.
Materials needed: pen, ruler/straightedge, scissors, cereal box, contact paper
The key is to find a cereal box that is wide and tall enough to support the periodicals you’re storing and to make a cut that won’t take away from the sturdiness and still allows you to peek into what the box contains.
Contact paper is very forgiving to work with. I didn’t cover the inside of the box and only did one layer.
