I love magazines. There is no question about it. Now that I have kiddos I love them even more. It's easy to flip through and read an article in a short amount of time. It's really hard for me to read books during the day because I always have to stop every few sentences or paragraphs and that to me is not enjoyable. So magazines it is!
I have become a huge fan of Magazines.com (and no, I am not getting anything by writing this post, I was just excited at the great deals I got today on their magazines and had accidentally bought a subscription for one I already had.). I have always been pretty skeptical of random sites but I have used this one a few times and have really liked it. The thing I think I love the most is if you accidentally buy a subscription twice (like I have been known to do) they automatically just renew it instead of sending you the magazine twice. Woo-hoo! Awesome for mom's like me who forget sometimes just what and when they had subscribed to. :)
The only draw back for me on getting all these lovely magazines is they tend to pile up. But I love to flip through old ones all the time so I kind of like keeping them around for a while. While we were getting ready to move right before the summer I took over 200 old magazines to the local library and donated them. They loved it and have a little table right at the front for people to pick them up on their way out. I love that someone else will also get some use from them too. So no more guilt on getting the magazines. They get to go to a great new home after they are finished here and I am not filling the landfills. Woo-hoo! Sounds like a win-win to me. Or am I just trying to convince myself of this so I can continue to feed my habit? ;)
