Power Tools and Magazines

We live in a small house.  We are a larger family with lots of interests living in a small house.  We are a larger family without a substantial income with lots of interests living in a small house.  That means I need to be creative with organization.

I was able to carve out a small space in the basement for my own little sewing area/room.  It had the perfect 2' wide space to put a tall bookcase to house my magazine collection which is spread wherever they fit in the house.  I had stacks on the basement floor, and I had a shelf in my daughter's closet that needed to be evicted from their spaces.  They got moved to this bookcase that I built.

I needed something sturdy, 2' wide, and cheap.  Building this simple bookcase myself was cheaper than custom built or even closet modulars.  And the nice thing was, the lumber store cut the pieces for me!  I just had to screw them together!  I secured it to the ceiling so it can't tip over and voila!  

So, all my magazines (except for my Victoria magazine collection which is in my bedroom) have a home.
