How is your magazine habit?
And...has it been effected by Pinterest?
I love magazines, I have some favorites saved from years ago.
I keep a stash of my favorite food ones with my cookbooks. Food Network, Bone Appetite and Tea Time are a few I have a hard time getting rid of. Many special issues from Taste of Home are also nestled in.
I have found over the years some publications get better and some get much worse, at least acccording to my tastes.
As time goes on my piles actually get smaller and more specific.
My husband has his pile and I have a place for currant issues.
We get most of them at very discounted rates, with Coke rewards and refusing to pay top dollar. I find only a couple I would pay $20 a year for- the rest I can live with or without.
Especially since Pinterest hit the scene!
I can look through a magazine and quickly decide weather or not it will have stay power, it better wow me or it is going back on the shelf.
With all the recipes and decorating tips, photos and blog posts, I would say my magazine habit has been reduced by 75%.
The one place I find I will spend the money is a good bookazine! Those $10-$15 no ad publications that fit exactly to my life style. Vintage Style and Flea Market mags are the best! This latest Spring 2013 is full of ideas, even compared to Pinterest.
I guess I would rather have a good lightweight "book" than a years full of ads and half interest articles.
So the question I would like to know is
Has Pinterest effected your magazine, book, or cookbook buying? If so how?
My favorite mags-
Flea Market Style
Mary Jane's Farm
Taste of Home
Food and Wine
