Decluttering - do I get rid of old magazines?

I have lots of old magazines that I've been hanging onto - should I get rid of them or keep, or try to sell them - and if so, who do I sell them to?

I have:
Early 90s SKY, The Face, Q, and the odd vogue. Also some LIFE special editions.

I adore magazines and should have been an editor if I hadn't been so lazy in my youth...
but my mum has left me with several boxes of mags that she's been storing and I need a bit of encouragement to do SOmething with them.

Can you tell I'm a pack rat?

Bin. I hung on to copies of Q and the NME for years. Why?

You could try selling them on ebay, you never know someone might want them, or you could Freecycle them.

i got rid of loads of glossy mags on freecycle. a new skint mum had them and was thrilled! she said that she'd pass them onto her sister who would pass them to her mum who would pass them to her neighbour! grin

check on e-bay. I ebayed 240 vogues last year for £250. And at the moment I've got a Face magazine with a bid and a few watchers.

Anything with Kate Moss seems to sell.
