Ding Dang Darnit!! I can’t believe I just did that! I CANNOT believe that I just subscribed to another magazine! I was on Food Network researching something and just saw this premier issue of Food Network Magazine advertised. Ten issues for only $15.00! How could I resist? BigSis, check it out. You might want to enter one of your recipes into their contest. Winner takes a prize of $500.00.
Here’s one of the recipes from this month’s premier issue. This Broccoli Chowder with Cheddar Toasts looks so yummy! Now that it’s cooling off here a little bit in the evenings, I’m getting in the mood to make some soup. I’ll probably have to triple this recipe to feed the “hungry men” in my house.
A couple of years ago, I intentionally stopped subscribing to several magazines that I had subscribed to for years. I stopped InStyle, Food & Wine, Fit, Domino, Self, and a couple others that I can’t even remember. There’s not enough time to read that many magazines and it would actually stress me out if the unread magazines started to stack up.
I had my current magazine subscriptions down to my absolute favorites, whole living body+soul, FitYoga, Heart Healthy and Sculptural Pursuit. A couple of months ago, I received an offer to subscribe to Food & Wine for only $2.00 for the year, so I’ve added that one back to my monthly subscriptions. Heart Healthy and Sculptural Pursuit only come out every quarter, so I don’t really receive all five magazines every month.
BigSis, you’ve got some stories to tell about magazines stacking up, right? Literally, stacking up! Wanna share?
Inquiring minds want to know. Just how many magazines are too many? Six sounds like a lot to me, but maybe it’s really not. I’d love to hear from everyone on this topic. What are your favorite magazines? How many subscriptions do you have?
