When we embraced a more frugal lifestyle, we gave up buying magazines as we did not consider it a need and we thought that we always had the possibility to look for new ideas online.
However, I have to confess that sometimes I am missing the pleasure of flipping through a magazine.
Ok, that's it, no problem, but what if I have the possibility to receive a completely free magazine?
Yesss, a few months ago my supermarket gave the opportunity to receive a free subscription for 6 months to a weekly magazine against the purchase of 2 units of liquid soap.
Today I have received the first copy
Is it really frugal?
I think so because:
- the soap is the one I usually buy
- I bought it when it was offered with a 40% discount
- I just had to register on the web page and send by mail a copy of the receipt ( cost for this 0,60 Euro )
Moreover, I already knew the magazine as I bought some copies in the past and so I was sure it was really interesting : it's a double win for me.
And you? Do you regularly buy magazines? Would you have taken the opportunity or do you think that it is not worth it?
