Where/how do you store all your magazines/newspapers?

I have a bit of a magazine habit and always have several copies on the go (at least) at any time. I need some way of storing them next to the sofa which keeps them in order/accessible.
Have tried various magazine racks but the mags always end up buckled/squashed and I forget to clear out as often as I should.
I was thinking maybe a small narrow bench so I coudl lay them out flat but cant find anything.
Anyone have any ideas?

I'd throw them out or buy fewer but what about one of those tables with a shelf under or a trunk

I know, am rubbish at clutter control...
A table/shelf would be good if not too big
(need it to be narrow to fit by sofa in narrow gap).
Will have a hunt.

Newspapers go straight in the recycling once DH and I have read them.

We have a chest in our living room with back copies of interiors (mine) and food (dh) mags in. There is also a leather trug thing in the loo with mags in.

Also in a lovely seagrass basket...with dd2 apple core, dh credit card bills and chewed pens, and dd1's art creations.

Talcyo this sounds like all the baskets we have in this house, they soon become receptecles for all kinds of gubbins
