 I was wondering what are your favorite magazines that you read? Maybe someone will learn of a new one that sounds good!

I get in the mail Birds and Blooms & Birds and Blooms Exta which is published in the off months from the regular Birds and Blooms. I also read Womans Day which my mom shares with me when she's finished. The Birds and Blooms, Taste of Home, Quick Cooking, Country, Country Woman, Handyman and a few others are "people produced" so they are really good to read. People send in their pictures, articles, stories and recipes and the people make a magazine.

I am trying to cut back on my magazines but I do get Birds & Blooms and the Extra...I still think they are some of the best magazines around.  I do get Better Homes & Gardens too. The rest are free from my husband being a frequent flyer...one of them is Martha Stewart and Sports Illustrated for him.



I really dislike magazines that automatically sign you up for another year and make you call one company and they have to call the magazine to discontinue it....be careful when you sign up. The two I had problems with were all about cameras, etc. I had only bought them because I was trying to help out my granddaughters school...next time I will just send the school money.

i don't read magazines any more
i used to subscribe to      reader's digest   but if you ever have you know what i mean saying i couldn't handle the volume of mail offers i recieved
i have a p.o. box and not home delivery         it was overrun if i didn't go to the p.o. every day
as it was it took more than a year to stop it after i un-subscribed               i still buy a copy at the store because it easily fits in my purse for reading in dr's office, etc     when ii finish it i leave it in a waiting room

i do read my newspaper (houston chronicle) every day             and a LOT of books

The only magazine I get now is the Gardening How-To which is part of my gardening club membership.  I finally gave up on all the other magazines since I never had time to read them anyway, less clutter that way.

I got a subscription to the Food Network magazine 2 years ago as a Christmas present.  I will most likely let the subscription lapse when it is up, probably in the next month or so.
The two that I would like to get but the cost is a bit much is the America's Test Kitchen Magazine and Cook's Country Magazine. Both are well written and very informative.  I did have a subscription a while ago but when I moved I did not renew.
I used to get Good Housekeeping but the magazine changed and it is just not the same.
I think the other one that I would consider getting would be the one from King Arthur Flour I think it is called the Baking Sheet.  (If anyone gets it please let me know if it is worth getting and do you get more from it than just the web site.)

I do get a printed paper.  I will not go to online paper (sort of an oxymoron).  I hate getting pen marks on the screen when doing Soduko.  Wink

I used to get a magazine called Chocolatier.  I got the first issue and then a "lifetime" subscription was offered.  I think it was $100.00.  I got that and I got every issue they printed.  It is no longer being printed but I think I got 10 years or more for the 100.00.  I will have to scan through them and find out how many issues I have.  I need another bookcase for my cookbooks so I can include them.  They are just stuck in a cabinet now and not easy to go through when I am looking for something to make. ....oh well another project to work on...seems like they are never ending.

I get a lot of magazines.  It started when my grandkids had to sell subscriptions for their middle schools.  However some I have been getting forever.  I get Good Housekeeping, Bon Appetite. Sunset, Cook's Magazine and Cook's Country Magazine.  I used to get Everyday Food, but they are changing the format and combining it with the Martha Stewart magazine, so forget that.  My husband is worse than I as he gets Car and Driver, Road and Track, and several Bicycling magazines.  I must say he is better at throwing them into recycling than I am.  I hang on to them forever.  I'm always sure I will need something in that issue for something.  Never Happens.  You would think I would learn.

Woman's Day, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, Better Homes & Gardens, Consumer Reports, Ladies Home Journal, Bend of the River (local publisher), Guideposts, and some I don't even remember except when they show up in the mail.  I need to cut back....do not have enough time to read all of them!  Most of them I just read for the recipes (and the publishers seem to be cutting back on those!!).

Like HM, I get Gardening-How to.  I like it and got a lifetime membership about 15 years ago.  I think I've gotten my money's worth already.  I also get Garden Gate, but when it runs out, probably won't renew.  There doesn't seem to be time enough to read magazines.  My sister gives me Prevention which is a handy size to put in your purse to read while waiting for a doctor or getting your car serviced.
Like Nikki, I used to get good Housekeeping but when they changed it I didn't like it anymore.  I do get the Baking Sheet.  I subscribed sort of by accident when I took an offer for a free issue..  When I didn't get it I called so they said they'd send me another.  Well, I got 2 so sort of felt obligated to subscribe.  When it came time to renew, they sucked me in with a coupon  for a free 5# bag of King Arthur flour.  I tried the white whole wheat and really like it.  Since I don't have a lot of time to look at websites, I do like the baking sheet.  There's lots of good recipes there.
Since i do equestrian stuff I get a couple  dressage magazines and since I'm a life member of the eventing association I get the eventing magazine.
That was a real deal.  The lifetime membership was $300 when I got it 35 years ago and is now $1500.  One needs to be a member to compete so I don't have to join every year.

When I moved to MO I sent off 50 something change of address cards -- all magazines, from NRA to NWF.  Slowly I let things expire.  Four years ago when I moved here I sent off 9!  Today I get Southern Living and the free MO Wildlife magazine ... that's it.

I get Southern Living only.  Back a number of years ago I got Taste of Home and Taste of Home Quick magazines.  As each issue came, I checked off recipes I thought the family would enjoy and made a computer master list of the ones I checked off, catagorizing them by food types, i.e. appetizers, soups, breads, main meals, desserts, cookies, etc.

I just go to my master list, find out the month and year of the magazine where the recipe I want is found.  I have the books sorted by months and rubber banded together by month.  It has really saved me having to search through piles of magazines to find what I want.

I can't tell you how many hundreds of times I've referred to that printout.  Once I see the month and year, then able to find the recipes I need.  A real life saver. 

Yeah, I know, I have too much time on my hands!!  Actually, I did this when I was still working full time.  Recipes are like jewelry to me, never enough!

Right now I enjoy allyou and Reader's Digest magazines. While I still receive Taste of Home, Quick Cooking and Country Woman Magazines, when my subscriptions for those magazines expire, I won't be renewing them anylonger, as I don't feel the magazines are as good as they once were when I first subscribed to them, and that was back in 1994.

Bakery1 you need to come to my house and do that for my recipes.  I don't know how many times I've wanted a recipe and can't remember where I saw it or can't find it.
