More on Frugal Spending

I like to have my magazine fix but magazines can be rather expensive. So recently I was pleased to get 4 magazines for the price of less than one. Yup! I got backdated copies. Hehe.

I read magazines while waiting for the kids at the toilet, while supervising their homework etc. In other words, I read them while doing something else, so as not to waste time. Time is precious and I hate to be idle.

It does not matter to me that the magazines are backdated. I don't mind not reading about the latest fashions or the latest celebrity gossips. I am just pleased at a bargain and 4 magazines for the price of less than one is certainly a bargain. It'll last me quite a while too as I usually read them in between doing other things. I don't have the luxury of time to browse through the entire magazine in one sitting.

An article here and there is just about all I can manage in my little snatches of time but thats fine with me. At least I get to read now. When the kids were younger, it was even worse. Time was even more precious then.

  1. I used to buy lots of magazines (imported ones some more) monthly, even have several subscriptions.

    I have lots of unread magazines because I don't have time to read them! Now, no more magazine buying for me. I read then when I go to the salon. :)

  2. eastcoastlife,
    Read at salon. Now thats frugal alright but then you have to pay the salon though. Haha.

  3. Some people I know would go to the library and borrow the magazine..hehe.

    I actually don't mind if it's back dated, often find them in a doctor office or some waiting room.

  4. Hi Kay,
    Yes, but usually I dare not touch those at the doctor's office. Afraid of germs. Hahaha. BTW, where is your main blog?
