Decorating Ideas From 1974- Color

My mom and I have the same set of problems.  We LOVE magazines, buy way too many of them and find it almost impossible to get rid of them.  Sometimes my mom will buckle down and get rid of a huge stack of magazines... by bringing them to my house.  Here's a Woman's Day she recently brought over for me.  And, well, I have to admit, now I can't seem to say goodbye to it.  It has been in our family for 34 years now.  How can I let go?  Plus, it is filled with fun decorating tips you just don't see anymore.
