Not all 30 challenges are fun to read about, sorry. I had some fun ideas when the month began, but I just ran out of time to implement. I was able to give away 2 subscriptions through the blog and Facebook Page so that’s a good thing. When I started the month I had 53 magazines cluttering the house and amazingly 12 more found their way into my mailbox, so I ended up reading 65 magazines this month!! I’m feeling pretty good about that. 23 New Yorkers, 7 The Weeks, 7 HGTV, 7 Vanity Fairs, 7 Better Home & Gardens, 5 Cleveland Magazines, 4 The Writers, 3 ADDitudes, 1 Poets & Writers, 1 Woman’s World, 1 First For Women.
So obviously, I need to stop the clutter before it gets here and I’ve decided to give up several magazines that when read back to back made me realize that I just didn’t get enjoyment or knowledge from them. I’ll be dropping HGTV, The Writer and Better Homes & Gardens. Nothing wrong with them just don’t need them.
I am still madly in love with The Week, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair. I also added a few new magazines that I love like Poets & Writers and ADDitude.
Here’s what the rest of what I haven’t posted already… If you want any of these sent your way, free of charge, just let me know. They head to recycling tomorrow.
