I hate spending money on magazines. I don't have a lot of time to read them anyway but I do enjoy flipping through them for decorating ideas, craft projects and best of all, new recipes and gardening ideas. So I compromise. Instead of subscribing, I check them out at the library. This works great for most magazines. Others, that I like tearing up, (you know, when you just rip out that new favorite recipe or picture of your dream kitchen) I get at the thrift store for a quarter. Southern Living for only 25 cents is well worth it for me!
Last week I just quickly flipped through the magazines at the thrift store looking for last year's Spring issues. Today I did the same at the library with the magazines Hobby Farm and Organic Gardening.
I subscribe to and love the Eating Well magazine! I've fixed countless of their recipes and we always really enjoy them. I also feel the articles are worth my time!
Happy frugal living!
