I continue to get free magazine subscriptions. CountryHome magazine just came in my mailbox, and from the label it looks like I received a free 2-year subscription. I have Amy at MomAdvice.com to thank for this great freebie from Start Sampling – I’m hoping a few of you got it too when it was available. The great part about this magazine is that in includes the “funandfamily” coupon insert with manufacturer’s coupons for items found at the grocery store, my favorite coupon is to Save 25 cents off Kozy Shack pudding (my Kroger will triple that coupon so I can indulge in some rice pudding for really cheap).

I’ll continue to tell you about the free magazine subscriptions I come across. Right now Start Sampling is offering a free subscription to Wake Boarding magazine and to Bridal Guide – just in case you know any wake boarders or brides-to-be, you might want to tell them about this offer. Yes, the magazines will come – at least from my experience they will!

So, what am I doing with my magazines after I’m done browsing them, reading the articles of interest, and clipping the money-saving coupons in them? Sometimes I will leave my magazines in the doctor’s office if that is where I am when I finish browsing and if they are lacking in their magazine selection. I also donate magazines to a charity that collects magazines to circulate among the waiting rooms of local hospitals and other public places in my community. If I am making a donation to a charity that is specifically for moms & their children then I will try and include a parenting magazine. I have also donated magazines to my local library where they sell them at 10 cents each to raise money for special projects. I encourage you to think about how you can give your free magazines a second life and gain a few readers
