Frugal Friday

I know it’s Saturday–better late than never!

My frugal find for this week is All You magazine.

It is full of coupons and it’s a magazine for real women. Those of you who know me know I’m far from being a Cosmo girl. Glamour doesn’t suit me either. I need real, practical tips on living life better….throw in a few coupons that will save me enough to cover the issue price and I’m happy. It runs about $2 which is a bargain in the magazine world, but is unfortunately generally only available at Walmart. I don’t like Walmart for many reasons, and I try to shop there as little as possible, but for the last few months I would bravely go in, fight the crowds, and wait in the long checkstand lines to get this magazine.

However, the other day I got a letter from Northwest Airlines with an offer to sell me magazine subscriptions that I can buy with my frequent flyer miles. All You was one of the choices, so I jumped at the chance to get a year’s subscription for the price of a few hundred miles. Good for me since I won’t be flying again anytime soon! No out of pocket cost and no more visits to Wallyworld! I sent that order form back ASAP and I anxiously await my next issue delivered to my door.

  1. That’s awesome that you got the magazine for miles! I have thought of subscribing. I do not like W@lmart either and rarely go there, lest I get too depressed….
