One of the first things I removed from my budget when we started DR over 6 years ago were magazine and newspaper subscriptions. Quite truthfully some magazine’s I have missed getting, others I could care less about. Newspapers are interesting to read, but they build up clutter so fast.
I just received a notification that the Tulsa City/County Library now has FREE digital downloads of 140 different popular magazine subscriptions. Ones like Good Housekeeping, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Mother Earth News, Grit, Martha Stewart Living, numerous crafts and news magazines, the list is quite long (140 different ones to be exact). Plus newspapers from all over. Many children’s and Spanish language ones are included. Do it through the library system and not only can you download and keep them for free, (or read them online) but the ones you download are yours to keep.
They are complete magazines and newspapers, which means ads are included, but you can ignore those just the way you do them in a paper version and at least through the library you are not paying for those ads. LOL! I am posting this because if Tulsa Library has it, your library may have or soon will have the same thing. No longer will you need to pay $12.95 if you want a single special Rachael Ray recipe, or a beadwork design you fell in love with, buying quilting magazines to get a single pattern a thing of the past.
