My addiction...

Yes I have an addiction....
to magazines. (And cook books, stationary, art materials, fabric and yarn...and reading blogs...and collecting things like teacups...but I'm getting carried away here!)

Magazines are what I am particularly referring to tonight. After looking at the recipe site below I followed the link to the notebook magazine site. I buy this usually for the yummy covers and floral photos. As with most of them I flick through and read a paragraph here and there. Then I wondered if there were any on line versions of the magazines I often waste my money on and clutter up my house with.

After a bit of net surfing I found this one for InsideOut. I am going to try to give up buying magazines- well maybe reduce the number that I buy well at least control my addiction and curb the mess that results in collecting them. Then I can save the money I would have spent there on my Europe trip (This is my big "when the little chicks fly the nest plan / dream")

I used to buy Notebook all the time... I was completely seduced by the gorgeous styling and absence of celebrities. It is a truly beautiful magazine, which I would read and fantisize about living graciously and being some sort of renaissance woman. But I have to admit, I never really felt that there was ever enough to read in there. It is really a gazing experience. I eventually gave it up when I went back to Uni. I gave all my back-copies to my English student. I hope she has enjoyed them!

I gave up that same magazine also(notebook), for the very reason I had SO many in the end. They did have some good art bits, and some craft. Plus it was always at the grocery checkout, so I would feel very sorry for myself and get it as a treat. I think I just got bored wit it too.....

Hello, my name is Melanie, and I'm also a magazine addict.

Now that we're only on one income, I've had to try to overcome my addiction. Luckily, my local library has some magazines I can borrow and I'm finding a few online too.

I'm also thinking of seeing if anyone is interested in doing some magazine swaps.
