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.
