Quick question about the magazines - are they magazines you would normally buy? Or do you go to whatever strikes your fancy for some reason?
i pick up all sorts of things: herb magazines, mom ones, Pagan ones, homesteading ones, whatever floats my boat. i go to the fun out-of-the-way local bookstores and the health food stores and places i'd never find the offbeat kinds of mags otherwise. it's so exciting just buying them! and then i also peruse the free ones at the library and the co-op. this year i need to try to keep spending down. it's all on credit and that's one area i haven't gotten much manifestation in as of yet. it would help if i got serious about budgeting and debt. i will have to think hard about that this year
go have fun!
