Spending Ban - Magazines

I've decided to impose a spending ban of sorts this month as things have been getting a little out of hand. Instead it's time to think about what I part with pennies for and the first thing is magazines. This is the current hoard piling up in my living room, half of which have barely had a glance through.

My reading matter of choice these days tends to be my Twitter feed or Bloglovin reading list yet I still can't resist throwing a magazine into the shopping trolley when I visit the Supermarket. I've even found my book reading waning on my journey to and from work lately usually playing with my iPhone until my train loses service when I turn to applying my make up.

So until I've been through this pile of magazines there will be no more additions - let's hope I don't miss out on too many free gifts that seem to be accompanying so many these days.

  1. I completely agree that it is just too easy to pick up a magazine and throw it in the trolley when out shopping. There are so many good magazines out there too which makes it even more difficult. I have subscriptions to 3 using my Tesco clubcard vouchers and try to stick to reading just them as they cost me nothing but I still find myself buying the odd different one for a change. Sometimes I have to really stop myself and ask if I can really afford it.

  2. magazines are my total weekness, I really need to curb this too! When you think the likes of elle and vogue are £3.50 each it soon tots up, eek! xxx

  3. I've been quite good this year, although I did buy quite a few last month for all the freebies! x

  4. The free gifts always tempt me so I've started avoiding that aisle in the supermarket!

  8. I used to be such a magazine addict - I would be sucked into buying the ones with all the free gifts! But also regularly buy the likes of Glamour and Company too. I did kick the habit though and to be honest don't 'really' miss them! They do clutter up the house afterall xxx
