    Several years ago, I got tired of never being able to find a magazine article when I wanted it. So, I collected about 50 cardboard boxes, taped 'year' labels on them and arranged them around the inside walls of my shop. Every time I ran onto a box of magazines, I'd sort them into the cardboard boxes. When I finally felt that I'd exhausted all the 'stashed' magazines, I started buying plastic containers and re-sorted each year by magazine title and issue date. This all took months to accomplish, but it was worth it. Here's a photo of the final product - I counted the number of magazines in one tub and multiplied by the tub count - I figure that there are well over 5,000 issues here, pretty much split between hot rods, sports cars and old car mags.
