Magazine Update Number I

Things are improving on the magazine front. Looks like talking about my problem is helping to solve it. Tee hee.

Here's an update on the number of mags in our house as of today.

Number in the crate outside: 34 (no change)

Number on the table: 64 (4 less than last week, making it so much easier to eat our dinner off the table)

Number dotted around the house: 3 (2 less than last week)

Number of magazines that have left the building: 6 (4 given to friends, 2 sold on Ebay, would you believe?!)

Number of new magazines that have entered the building: 3. Oopsy.
Total number of magazines in the house: 104 (3 less than last week. Yay!)

By the way, I calculated how much the mags had cost me (before I bought the latest 3). It was actually less than I had feared - 100.70 (not including the mags in the crate outside since most of those had arrived via gift subscriptions.) Now, I'm not saying that it's a small amount of money, but it's certainly less than I thought it might have been. Phew.

  1. Oh you are good - all that cathartic, facing your problem sort of stuff! I'm still sneaking my magazines into the house before husband notices! Bad and wrong I know so I'm very relieved to meet a fellow blogger with a similar addiction. Last count for me was the following, but every month - oh gawd!

    - Country Living (absolute must)
    - Country Homes & Interiors
    - Period Living
    - Homes & Antiques
    - The English Home (better, only every 2 mths)
    - The English Garden (the same)
    - Ideal Home
    - Easy Living

    I do try to have a regular purge and stick my favourite pictures into scrap books but the pile is usually tottering before I do.

    Thanks for popping by my blog to sya hello. What a gorgeous little chap your son is! Will pop back again soon.
