Getting my fix
Even with all the images and blogs and inspiration available online, for me there is just nothing nicer than relaxing in the bath with a nice interiors magazine (with a diet coke). Or for having a flick through whilst your 3 year old is insisting you watch a film with him you have already seen numerous times....you can very easily multi-task watching 'Monsters Inc' with absorbing all the loveliness in Living etc.
So with the move to bigger house last year, and the resulting impact on our household budget, I had narrowed down my magazine consumption to just one a month. I chose Ideal Home as it felt like it always had something relevant and achieveable in there to me. But I have missed the aspirational images of Living etc.
So this week I treated myself with my Tesco Clubcard Vouchers to 2 more magazine subscriptions. I reasoned that they had cost me nothing, although I must have spent a fortune on food to earn £36 worth of vouchers.
I subscribed to Elle Decor and Living Etc. I was feeling generous so even treated the Queen of Clean to a Mountain Bike Rider magazine subscription with the remaining vouchers. 3 annual subscriptions for £36 in clubcard vouchers - a thrifty find for me.
