Exercising restraint

I've mentioned in the past that I'm addicted to magazines and books... I simply love to read. I am always finding a free subscription to different magazines and I love that because I feel like I'm saving money. I get to feed my fetish without spending money.

As you know, once the free or trial subscription is over the publisher sends an invoice stating "to continue your subscription please pay xyz amount." Today, I opened up the invoice for Country Living magazine and it was $12 for a one-year subscription. That's 12 issues for just $1 each!

When I get an invoice that is that great of a deal I usually hold onto it while I consider whether I'm going to pay for it. But this time I didn't... I know every penny counts nowadays and paid subscriptions are luxury that I don't need.

I'll just stick to my free and trial subscriptions! What are you giving up or doing to save a little money?
