I just cancelled a magazine description (Marie Claire) and didn't renew another (Taste of Home. Shut it.*) and I feel really good about it.

I get far too many magazines that I don't read.

*DISCLAIMER: I only subscribed to Taste of Home because when my MIL was visiting last year she made a ton of recipes from the magazine that I loved. But seriously, in the YEAR that I've gotten the magazine I haven't made ONE recipe from it. It appears I like to actually taste Home, not make it.

This is no surprise to my husband.



  1. Good for you! Way to take control.

    I love Taste of Homes...though I never make anything from it either.

  2. Haha. I received Taste of Homes for a gift last year and was so excited (drooling) over the recipes. Did I make any? Nope. I imagined what they taste like while I read it though. ;)

    Good for you!

  3. Good for you!

    I hate Marie Claire. I am receiving it for free and I think it is lame. It usually just sits in the house for a couple weeks then I throw it away.

  4. I loved to READ TOH as well and actually attended a cooking school of their's.

    But the recipes are WAY to involved for a full time working mommy.

    I cancelled mine too....
