(Also my Country Living came today too, which is back on track imo.)
We went up north for New Year (I'm not a New Year fan but we had a good time and I stayed awake and everything lol!!), that little lot was waiting on the table for me when I got home.
My mother in law (who had put our bins out etc) must think I am super extravagent, squandering away her sons hard earned on frivolous magazines lol!!
But you shouldn't judge a book (or mag) by its cover....
Now I shall justify my current magazine glut...none of them have cost me real cash...(Country Living I subscribedto through Tesco clubcard deals) I have taken out a 3 month trial (which I will cancel)- most found through MSE - a couple of them I will keep on (like CHI for example), but the others are ok but I'm not right bothered!! English Home is delicious eye candy but a bit rich for my tastes lol!!
I fell lucky in that I took out the offer in October/November so I got more Christmas editions than I would have otherwise paid real money for! I now have a good afternoons chopping and pasting my bestest pics into scrap books ahead of me.
I've not had a problem when cancelling, but you do have to remember when the offer ends so you can act accordingly in order that you don't pay full whack, but it was worth it for the luxury (to me) of having 6 mags on my doorstep each month!!
So thats Claires Thrifty Tip for January lol!! I'm trying to have a no spend month - so if you see me near anything non wedding related, shout!!!
