Save or Splurge: Magazines

It's September so the really big issues are on the stand (though not as big as previous years). I usually buy Vogue's September issue every year, but I'm not sure I will this year. A severe bout of unemployment makes $5 a big deal for me. Plus, I can see all the ads online and have plenty of blogs to tide me over when I have a fashion craving.

I'm a magazine hoarder so I usually splurge on a issue I really want, but I'm picky about the issue. Lately, few magazines hold my attention enough to convince me to purchase a subscription so I don't splurge there.

Do you save or splurge on magazines? Are you buying any September issues?

Do you subscribe to any fashion magazines? Which ones?

Good post. I've bought quite a few mags recently including Pop, Love and Vogue UK. Though I'm kind of going off Vogue, as it's abit old by the time it gets to the shelf.

I actually have blogged about this myself (http://www.ambarsthoughts.com/2009/07/which-magazine-do-you-prefer.html) and got some really interesting feedback.

This year, however, I did buy Vogue's September issue, and it's so heavy I might as well include it on my workout routine, LOL. But I see your point, I'm only subscribed to Glamour and Fitness and I rarely buy others anymore b/c of my budget.

I love Vogue and Mademoiselle. I hope to go to one of Vogue's parties this fall.

I usually go on vaca in late August. I try to get all the Sept. issues possible and work the cost into my vacation budget. Good excuse to have a stack of Sept. next to me on the beach & for the transition into sept.
