Sassy was truly a revelation for me. The bands, the articles, the fashion, the writers whom I felt like I knew. I loved the "indie" feel of the magazine and could relate to it more than Teen or YM.
Well, I actually threw away all my Sassy magazines and a portion of my Jane magazines. Then in the early 2000's I was feeling nostalgic and bought all of them on ebay so now I have a complete set of each title. It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling to read through Sassy again.
That's awesome, what a great thing to have! But I understand how it's not the same as the printed magazine.
I did install the National Geographic on my computer. It is a bit sucky. Rather have the originals.
I do have the first volume and edition. It is a reprint but it s hard to tell.
I have a large pile of vogue magazines, I like them as I think they look nice, I most likely wouldn't read them again, but they have a stylish edge to them and I'm 'in to' that kind of decor (wooden floors, large bookshelves, magazines stacked high used as side tables, large fancy fireplaces....I can't really describe it lol) they are in a cupboard until I move into a house officially instead of renting, but I will still keep them, some I haven't even opened the packaging!
I dismember them. No kidding. I take out the pages with articles and looks I like and file them in a huge binder. The rest goes for recycling. Declutters the house and really, how often you pick up a year old magazine?
I do the same thing. But I have to be more selective with what I rip out because I have a few too many binders. LOL.
