My name is Kristia and I am addicted to magazines.
I have stacks by my bedside…
It all started back in 1982 when my mother caved to my request for a Young Miss magazine (the back-to-school edition) while in the grocery store check out lane. The check out lane is an evil place for magazine hoarders.
The only thing that has changed in 30 years is that I don’t buy magazines in the check out lane any more; I subscribe. Runner’s World, Cooking Light, Money, Family Fun, Inc, and so on; you name it, my postman delivers it.
I do read them (they put me to sleep every night), but for some reason I have a hard time parting with them. I could stop subscribing to so many, but the publication companies know me too well. They have me at “FREE gift with your re-subscription.”
So, I tackled the magazines. I ripped my address off each one and sent them packing to a magazine exchange at my CSA drop-off. And I’m proud to say that I didn’t bring any back home with me.
Do you have piles of magazines around your home? Go tackle it!
