Now that I have a very shiny new house of my very own (actually it’s about 100 years old, but you get the point) I’m an absolute sucker for house magazines.
Last weekend I went through my accumulated pile to cut out pictures for inspiration. I had more than a dozen, and they cost between £3 and £3.50 each ($6-$7). That’s about £40 in magazines from the last 2-3 months. Which is a lot of money to
spendwaste really, especially as I pretty much know what my decorating scheme is.
But I find it very difficult not to buy them. I was in the supermarket just the other day, feeling pretty annoyed that I’d bought and read every single house magazine in the shop.
Has anyone got any suggestions, or am I doomed to fritter away the money that I could be spending doing up the house on buying magazines instead?
