5-0 out of 5 stars This magazine has changed the way I think about my home
Fun, Inspirational, And boy is my husband in TROUBLE....I have NEVER had more fun shopping for my home...I thought I had a "problem" a decorator, I am constantly on the prowl for new and innovative resources...this magazine shares more insider resources than I could ever did the editors find SO MUCH to cover?And How will they possibly fill 10 issues per year with SO MUCH tempting inspiration?domino also helps my clients explore merchandise helping me do my job even more efficiently.I read all the home magazines and domino has revolutionized the magazine world!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great new style mag for your home!
I recently picked up the premiere issue of Domino. It was love from the first page. I style homes for a living and found this new magazine to be different from the usual decor magazines out there. Domino has hip cool pictures, innovative ideas, and encourages individual style. The best feasture is that this is a shopping magazine so exactly where to buy these chic items are listed right on the pages. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars As always a great magazine
I have always LOVED Southern Living magazine. You can be assured that if you cook from the recipes contained in this magazine, they will usually be very delicious. I used to subscribe just for the recipes. I now also enjoy the articles on travel and on decorating. This is a great "home" magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of the Best for Home Decor, Travel and Food
I've just renewed my subscription to Southern Diving for the 12th time -- that's 12 years of the very best in home design, interior decoration, gardening, recipes and travel. My favorite feature is the Southern Journal that's always (now) on the back page -- this is a slice-of-life vignette of the little details that those of us who grew up in the Old South recognize -- and identify with -- at first glance. Subjects range from the front porch to hush puppies to SEC football to sweet tea and usually transport us into treasured memories.

Although the magazine seems to be mostly appreciated for recipes (and the holiday issues especially are a treasure of traditional and stylish treats), Southern Living's travel pages are full of information on the best destinations in the South. Each month there's at least one, and often more, in-depth piece about some unusual and fascinating place to visit.

The magazine features home designs, interior decoration and some sort of project -- instructions for making a complicated drapery valance or how to install a glass buffet shelf or the best way to organize a closet.

I've subscribed to all the home magazines over the years but SL is the one I've been faithful to. I've traveled to new places, made their projects and cooked their food, all to a chorus of compliments and accolades from family and friends.

Seems like there should be a reward for faithfulness in terms of subscription rate savings.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thick magazine full of color gardening photos and reviews.
I just moved to the South so I thought I better learn about the area! This is a fun magazine. It's very thick, with sections on vacation spots, restaurant reviews, garden how-tos, home remodeling, and lots of recipes. I've already learned how to eat a steamed crab and that there are bed and breakfasts on islands off the Georgia coast.

GREAT Magazine...BUT, Do NOT order through this site. They will charge you $19.97 on your credit card, then send you a bill in the mail for $32.00. You are getting ripped off!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars 2.50 Cover Price, Do Your Math!!!
Ok, Amazon has it at 10.00 as of Feb 2004, and the cover price is 2.50 Enough said right there. But let me inspire you further, Amazon's price is even cheaper than directly from the publisher!!! OK, as for the magazine itself, this is another one my mom likes to read and which I find myself checking out from time to time. Good Housekeeping has existed for many years and is ranked 5th in the USA for sales! It has a circulation of over 4,000,000. It covers an array of topics including: food, fitness, beauty, child care, money management, health news, travel, and human interest stories. This is a magazine that would be great for any homemaker (is that one word or two?) If you are a parent or someone who has their own place, this magazine could be a big benefit to you. It's main aim is at women, though many men read it for its insightful articles.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this magazine!
Good Housekeeping is a wholesome, clean, serious magazine. Various topics that may be found in an issue - how to raise children, household tips, financial help, or marriage advice - suggest that the magazine is geared towards the middle-aged to the older woman. I'm married and only in my 20s, but I get so much out of reading the articles and advice anyway.

I absolutely love this magazine! I was looking for a magazine with good, long articles to read, and I found this great one. They even re-designed the look, and it's excellent. Everything is more organized, clearly separated into their respective sections, and each page is clearly marked with the section heade so I'll always know which section I'm on.

I particularly enjoy the articles about real-life triumphs and tragedies, Talk to Me by Joy Behar about relationship advice, and Peggy Post's Etiquette Dilemmas.

4-0 out of 5 stars To the person from the UK...
Ok, so you wrote in forever ago and will probably not see this... Size 8-16 in USA clothing is equivalent to about size 16-32 in the UK. As you can see, this magazine targets the average American woman.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not For Men!
Seeing Nicole Kidman on the cover of a magazine called "Good Housekeeping" gave me goose bumps! But beware! This is not a fantasy magazine for men! I was expecting great pictures of the ladies, together with heightened stories about good looking chicks doing housework. You know, "She bent over in her French maid's uniform, blond hair sweeping across her pert shoulders, and proceeded to spread lemon-fresh floor wax across the freshly scrubbed floor, rythmically, in perfect circles..." Alas, there are no centerfolds or fantasies, or even great cartoons here. Instead, this is a magazine for women who want to learn shortcuts, and a lot of it has nothing to do with housekeeping! The articles have lots of numbers (7 ways to do this, 11 steps toward that), and the advertisements are the reason your woman crunches up funyons on top of your Cambell's soup. Again, Good Housekeeping is not for men! And I recommend that, for their own sake, men do not get it for women.

Usually has something of interest to read and/or save. Certainly in league with Ladies Home Journal or Redbook. Don't need a subscription to all of them, but all of equal quality ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars great stuff
I always enjoy flipping through Architectural Digest, even though I am by no means one who is in the know when it comes to architecture or interior design. The pictures are high quality and range from the ultra modern to Old World classical to American traditional. The celebrity features are always interesting to take a look at, and I especially enjoyed the March 2004 one on George Lucas's Skywalker ranch.

4-0 out of 5 stars Architectural Digest: the source for interior designers
Architectural Digest is not an "architecture" magazine as many people believe it is. It began as an architecture magazine, but slowly became known for its coverage of building interiors that consumers wanted to see. This is true today, as the cover article is generally the about the interior of a famed actor, politician, designer, or artist's home. These articles are remniscent of a paper version of MTV's show "Cribs." While the articles about the interiors dominate, an accompanying photograph of the exterior tags along when appropriate. The articles discuss the ideas, sources, materials and inspiration behind the designs pictured. Each magazine generally has about one dozen such articles plus features.
The magazine caters to the needs of interior designers and those who can, or wish they could hire them. The magazine does not promote or favor either traditional or modern design.
AD (as it calls itself) is full of advertisements. Some people may find this irritating, but for a designer, decorator, or client searching for inspiration or sources this information is equally valuable as the articles and features. Ads are just as telling of where the industry is going and where it has been as any picture or text.
If you subscribe, do it because you know and want what AD is. It is expensive, thick, and very useful if you are interested with the cutting edge of interior design. Do not get it to learn more about architecture or for the quality or readability of its text. Pictures and advertisements are the game with AD.If you are still unsure, pick up one at the newsstand and check it out before you buy 12 issues - most issues are like the others and "special" issues are frequent but not really that different from the norm.

2-0 out of 5 stars Try 'Architecture' and 'Dwell' Instead
'Architectural Digest' has changed over the years to become fussier and more lifestyle oriented than substantial architecture and design commentary. I still have a subscription, but intend to allow it to lapse when it expires for three primary reasons:

1) The magazine is huge and cumbersome, largely due to the massive quantity of advertisements;
2) The magazine exclusively highlights gazillion dollar homes, that only are a factor for celebrities;
3) Stylistically, the magazine seems stuck in a rut of cluttered end tables and credenzas, overstuffed pillows, and no space on a wall unoccupied by a huge, gold, gilded framed picture from eighteenth century France.

I don't like clutter, and I don't like being ornate to make a house look rich. That's why I no longer think this is a magazine that I really need. For me I will read 'Architecture' for serious architectural commentary, and 'Dwell' for reasonable (and financially attainable) interior design commentary. Thanks, but no thanks.

3-0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag
I used to love Architectural Digest. I got to admire and be inspired by incredible homes, and I couldn't wait to get my issue every month.

However, lately, I have seen less Architecture than Interior Design, and more ads than ever. I've even let my subscription lapse. Every now and again, I'll pick it up on the magazine rack, but only if the issue is architecture heavy, or covers a particularly interesting project in depth.

Architectural Digest used to be the pinnacle in the field, but now it is just a mixed bag.

3-0 out of 5 stars Way Too Much Filler, but still "Required Reading"
AD has lost its edge over the years as it has become more focused on life style rather than interior design (witness the extensive sections dedicated to world hotels and properties for sale, or look at the breezy, non-substantive "Letters to the Editor" to get an idea that AD is not taken seriously by designers).

Still, AD usually presents one designer, or two, whose work is inspiring, and it's Special Editions ("before and after," or "designers' own homes") usually make up for some disappointing months. ... Read more

Even if you will never make a "gourd candle" or a "Fortuny-inspired tablecloth," Martha Stewart Living can't be beat for its wealth of ideas concerning what Martha calls "good things." A crafter for craft's sake, and an obsessively organized woman (just look at her personal calendar, included in the first few pages), there is no concept or task that is too mundane for Martha. Like Martha herself, the magazine is impeccably organized--recipes and decorating instructions appear with full-color photos, each filed in their own sections of "cooking," "keeping," "crafts," "home," and "collecting." Learn to slip matched sets of bed linens into one of their pillowcases for easy and convenient shelving, make washcloth mitts, and coordinate mismatched towels with decorative ribbon. A whiz at flower arranging, dinner parties, card and sewing crafts, and decorating, Martha covers and conquers all areas of the home--plus weddings, baby showers, and holidays. --Daphne Durham ...

5-0 out of 5 stars She's an inspiration
I've bought all her magazines since 1997 from Living to Weddings to Baby to Kids to all her Special Issues and I love them all. I've kept every single issue. Martha is a teacher. I've learnt how to make bridal bouquets with her awesome step-by-step instructions (Summer 2000, page 128) How to clean hard-wood floors (Sept '01, page 130) annual gardening issues (March). Articles featuring various types of tomatoes, squash, eggplants, peppercorns, mustard ... the list is endless. Her 101 articles is awesome too, e.g. pumpkin pie 101, fried chicken 101. I enjoy cooking from her recipes (and also Julia Child's 'Way to Cook' - whom I admire tremendously as well). Cooking, gardening, house-keeping ... it's all a passion, it's how well you want to do it. I wasn't happy just slapping dinner down on the table, each time I cook something, I want it to be even better than the first time I did it. Martha shows you how and she truly loves to teach, when you read the magazine from cover to cover, you will realise that. You will learn many things. Read about a 97 year old gentleman hybridzing at least 150 Siberian Iris, how he did it etc. (March '99) you will be amazed at the colors and his energy. I look forward to seeing it at the news-stands every month. I hope you do too.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Favorite in Europe!
"Martha Steward Living" is the only American home magazine my wife really enjoys reading. We live in Europe, but are able to buy some American magazines from a shop near my office. The other home journals that I've bought in the past were quickly discarded. However, "Living" turned out to be a big hit and the only American journal equal to the stylish Italian and French magazines she reads. I think she likes "Living" so much because the writers seem to combine the best of American and European food, interior design, and crafts. Being on the receiving end, I can tell you that I've really enjoyed eating some of the recipes in "Living", like the chocolate pumpkin pie in the November issue. My wife isn't really a crafts person, but she's had a lot of fun with some of the projects that have appeared in the journal (with patterns available on the Martha Steward web site). Now I'm no judge of home journals myself, but I do know that this is the only magazine that she now always asks me to check for at the shop. You'll probably like it too if you want a magazine that's a bit more eclectic and upscale.

5-0 out of 5 stars style for the masses
This is a fine magazine with truly scrumptious recipes if you're into the kitchen/food thing, home ideas that one can actually use (or that will inspire one to do something similar), and exquisite photography, usually quite stark and simple, of ways to enhance the aesthetic beauty of one's life.
One can serve a plain meal of soup and bread, and make it look like a feast, if you get into Martha's way of looking at things, and it does not take a spending spree to have a "Martha Look". Her basic table settings tend to be white china (one can use mix and match white plates from the local thrift store), clear glass, and colorful fabric...add some well shaped twigs in a glass vase for a centerpiece, and voila ! you have a table that could be shown in this lovely magazine; a rule for "The Look" seems to be the absence of clutter.

Of the regular monthly articles, I like "Ask Martha", which solves problems posed by readers, from health issues to how best to clean your eyeglasses, to "How can I get the coating on my chicken to stay in place when I am frying it ?".
"Clip-Art Craft" is another I appreciate, where in the August '04 edition for example, there are attractive templates for postcards, which one can copy onto card stock, glue a 4 x 6 photo to, and send to your friends. It's another grand idea from Martha !
You'll find articles on antiques, pets, gardening, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and much more, and on the last page, the yummy "Cookie of the Month".

Martha Stewart has brought style and good merchandise at affordable prices for those of us who are budget conscious, but like nice things. I have bought her bedding, and her bathroom accessories have graceful shapes and are an excellent value, and this magazine is one of my favorite aspects of the "Martha industry". The Patricians I know are not usually kind to Martha, but Proles & Plebes like me tend to greatly appreciate her.
Martha, we're going to stick by you through thick and thin !

1-0 out of 5 stars Subscription stopped - account "disappeared"
I love the Martha Stewart Living magazine. I did not receive my July 2004 issue and called customer service to find out why. I had sent them a check for $57 in Oct 2001 extending my subscription for 3 years; it should have expired in Feb 2005. Customer service told me they had no record that I ever had a subscription. I subscribed when I lived in London, when I lived in Rio de Janeiro, and when I lived in Sydney; I received all issues while outside the U.S. I don't keep cancelled checks for 3 years so cannot prove that I really do have a subscription that just "disappeared" from their data base. Not happy about this!!!

If it's important to women, they cover it. Each month I keep pages from this publication--recipes, articles, websites or products to try... bits of info to pass along to other women. Just a damn fine publication.

2-0 out of 5 stars Boring, Really Boring
.... The articles and spreads are not at all remarkable; there's nothing here that will blow your mind. The projects are fun but they don't look good at all. The recipes are ok but nothing you couldn't find in any cookbook. I understand that for a very low price you get 17 issues but if you actually hold an individual issue, it's incredibly thin. I noticed that even the binding is bigger than the amount of paper! .... Woman's Day is the school marm of the bunch.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Very Happy
Subscriptions started promptly and I loved every issues. I cant say enough about Everything they do is 1st class. You have a customer for life. Thanks!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Creative Recipe Ideas & Fun, Colorful Articles about Life
A real favorite in this magazine is the page of quotes, It is sure to bring a smile or teach you something about life. They also always have cleaning tips, health topics, diet and exercise solutions, true stories, beauty hints, inspirational articles, soul nourishing tips, recipes, recipes and more recipes, family/children, flowers, end of the magazine article to make you think about life, and gardening hints.

If you want to find a cover story fast, they have an "on our cover" section in the index. In Every Issue there is a shopper's guide and a recipe index.

The articles are helpful and in the March 2002 issue they had an article on how to be less stressed. They also had an article on PCOS which is apparently more common than we women think.

The beauty sections show you the newest fashion and you can decide if you want to adapt your style to the trends. Always seems rather chic.

Some of the recipes in the March 2002 issue included:

A luscious Lemon Coconut Pound Cake
Coconut Macaroons
Peanut Butter Oat Bars
Baby Cheesecakes - really cute
Banana Salsa
French Oven Beef Stew
Pasta with Shrimp

The recipes are not difficult and seem practical.

Even the advertising in this magazine is colorful and fun.

A Very "American Gal" type magazine.
Nothing fancy, just real life.

Not your usual magazine. Great articles - helpful information. Interesting stories.

5-0 out of 5 stars NPR for Dog Lovers
Smart, fair, funny and informative. I often refer to this periodical as the NPR for dog lovers. Actually you can see that many times contributors are people from NPR. Our dogs are our family and we enjoy them very much. I read this magazine from cover to cover. I have given many gifts subscriptions!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Bark is The Best!
The Bark is by far the greatest magazine for dog lovers ever printed! Insightful articles, essay, stories, and artwork keep you waiting eagerly for the next issue. They cover health, training, home decorating, entrepreneurs, absolutely everything! And maybe most importantly, the Bark does not cater to breeders or exploiters. Instead of advertisements for kennels, they promote shelters and spay/neuter programs. No AKC elitists here! Every dog counts. And if you are looking for the lastest and greatest pet products, their advertisers have the most original and unusual things to be found anywhere. This magazine focuses on human relationships with the dogs that share our world, housepets to service dogs. When each new issue arrives (and there aren't enough!) we make popcorn for ourselves and for our dogs and the we all hit the couch for the entire evening. If you have one dog, no dog, or many, this is the quintessential reading for any person who has ever loved a canine!

5-0 out of 5 stars The New Yorker, for people who live with dogs
Bark is not a how-to-care-for-your-dog magazine. It's a magazine about living with dogs. It has fascinating articles about the lives of dogs and people with dogs. It has history of dogs and poems about dogs and interviews with dog trainers and sheep herders and canine rescue squads ... If you want the latest pet grooming tricks, you won't find it here, but if you want insight into what dogs mean to people and what people mean to dogs, this is your magazine. Charming, touching, smart and simply wonderful.

5-0 out of 5 stars A different dog magazine
I can't wait to open each issue of The Bark when it arrives; it never fails to inspire. My dog is part of my family, and The Bark reflects that way of life. Life with my dog. Unlike other dog magazines, The Bark doesn't tell me how to train my dog or what type of dog food I should buy; instead I find articles written by those who share their lives with dogs, and who have something to say about it to readers who live with dogs. If you don't live with a dog, you might after you read The Bark! ... Read more

I just tried to resubscribe to Metopolitan Home.
I was a subscriber for many years while living in the US, taking many "can't live without" issues with me when I moved to Australia 12 years ago. I found it very inspiring and am sorry to have just found out I cannot be a subcriber unless I live in the US.
Bit too difficult to move back right this moment.

1-0 out of 5 stars I couldn't wait for my subscription to end!
I made the mistake of subscribing to this magazine, and couldn't wait for my subscription to run out! If viewing the same minimalist designs over and over every month is your cup of tea, this just might be the mag for you, but I found the articles and pictorials to be lacking in imagination, warmth, and screaming with redundancy. Every once and awhile I was surprised to find an article or feature that had some originality and expression, but unfortunately, this was more often the exception than the rule.

4-0 out of 5 stars Publish More Issues Annually!
Having followed Met Home since its infancy (as Apartment Life!), I respect it for its mix of visuals as well as lack of pretension. Always loaded with ideas--albeit dreamy at times, but what "shelter book" isn't?--it's grounded in "modern" (i.e., crisp, clean) that may not appeal to every taste...but it serves its niche extremely well. I also like the fact that each issue generally includes an article with a "socially conscious" theme.

I love this magazine. It provides great ideas that look good. Country is a lifestyle. This magazine exemplifies that. It shows all different styles of country. You don't have to fit into one look. I prefer this to Country Home, which generally is dated in their decorating.

3-0 out of 5 stars Too Many Ads
I used to like this magazine. However,it is so difficult now to find the text due to the ad-heavy format.I would pay more for a subscription and have a cleaner, less cluttered format.

5-0 out of 5 stars Country Living is geared Toward American Antiques
and especially the family heirlooms that have been passed
onto you. The ordinary everyday chairs,linens,and china that
belong to the agarian era of the Family Farmhouse.
In an inventive an unique way, Country Living uses the antiques

Usually there is an article for the 20 somethings. It
is 60's retro, or how to be country in a city loft...

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for home and business design
An outstanding magazine even if all you wish to do is look at the pictures. Great ideas and for a great price.

4-0 out of 5 stars A STEAL at Amazon prices!!!!!!
I have continued to get this Magazine subscription for almost 4 years now. I really enjoy the pictures and the many different ways to do "country". I began subscribing because I was gathering information on opening a "Bed and Breakfast" and I wanted to see the looks that were out there that said "cozy" and "homey". This Magazine has never let me down I find that I enjoy the section that they have called "Real Estate Sampler" as well as the product information that they have in the back of the book.

I used to get over 16 Magazine Subscriptions, and for me to keep subscribing to this one speaks volumes(please check out my other Magazine reviews)The other Magazine that I liked about as much as this one along the same lines is House & Garden.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy living for women and their families
Better Homes and Gardens is really about easy living. Each issue includes articles about friends and family, gardening, interior design, building, family matters, food, health, and shopping. This is the magazine I reach for between work and errands because the articles are easy to read and brief yet interesting and inspiring. A few feature examples: window box herbs, dieting myths, cooking scones, what's new in family cars, and more. Better Homes also emphasizes family by incorporating activities for children or for the whole family from season to season. Better Homes is a good magazine for holiday ideas, too, with recipes and crafts to decorate your home and enjoy with your children. Although there are more sophisticated home magazines out there, I'm glad I have Better Homes lying around when I have a minute to relax.

3-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful photography, lousy articles, too much advertising
After hearing such good reviews of this magazine, I picked up a copy of this month's Better Homes and Gardens from the grocery store as a trial before subscription. The photography was wonderful, and it boasted some great ideas through the photography, but the articles were too brief and lousy. Moreover, I was thoroughly disappointed with the overabundance of advertisement that litters this magazine. I was very much disappointed. I was expecting more than just good ideas from pictures.

2-0 out of 5 stars AKA...Better Homes and Advertising
I ordered this magazine recently only to cancel my subscription. There is way too much advertising in the magazine and none of the crafts or projects really enticed me to get creative. It's too bad. Go with Martha Stewart Living or Sunset magazines instead, both high quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hello...
For those of you that complain about advertisments in magazines, what are you whining about? How do you think
magazines get a nice chunk of their funding? They have companies pay to have their products advertised in the mag.
so shut up.

On a happier note, I love this magazine. It has wonderfuly lovely ideas for make your house look beautiful though some of the ideas do seem a little pricey.

1-0 out of 5 stars Every other page is an advertisment
Better Homes and Gardens has enticing covers, but once you flip through the pages, you are bombarded with advertising. It seems that the magazine's actual content consists of less than 10 pages. I'm left feeling short changed every month that my issue arrives. I do not plan on renewing this subscription. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not much there.
This Old House is published, naturally enough, as an adjunct to the popular PBS show, but it doesn't really offer much by itself. It's mostly a read-and-toss sort of magazine. If you're really interested in home building and remodeling, there are two far superior magazines: Fine Homebuilding and Old Home Journal. Each of them offers far more depth and useful information than This Old House, not to mention better photography and a wider range of topics. Fine Homebuilding in particular is a magazine you'll want to keep- and most readers do.

4-0 out of 5 stars Resource Material
If you are a fan of This Old House, then you probably want to get this magazine. If you have been watching the show for a long time (who hasn't?) then you will feel like you are reading a magazine about family, as there is usually something in each issue from each of the show's participants.

The magazine offers more in-depth information about the projects you see on television. A big reason to get the magazine is to learn more about the materials used in the projects and where you can get them. In addition, there are projects covered in the magazine which are not done on the television series.

While the magazine, in my opinion, is a bit short on exact specifics, or "how-to's," one has to keep in mind that a lot of the attitude of the show seems to be "use a professional." While I can understand doing that if you have the financial resources, it just isn't always practical. Still, if you want to be informed when you do call the professionals, this is one way to do it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Just an ad for the TV show
This Old House magazine is great for keeping up to date on other peoples remodels and what the TV show is doing. It is not however good at teaching you how to do much of anything. There is too much time spent reminding readers that all the "experts" quoted in the magazine can also be seen on the various TV shows.

Compared to the other magazine I get, Family Handyman, This Old House has very little in the way of useful tips and detailed instructions for projects. When projects are explained in detail, they are too high a level for most home handymen.

Good for ideas on what to do: Somewhat
Good for how to implent those ideas: Not

4-0 out of 5 stars Northwest Fan
I've found that the magazine is a good companion to the TV program. Where the TV program often deals with home projects that are far outside the average person's economic means (unlike its early days), this magazine offers details and hints that are useful for all homeowners that like to swing hammers and delight in "demo dust".

1-0 out of 5 stars Just like the TV show! - which ain't good in this case
I used to watch TOH all the time and do enjoy watching it now. However keep in mind that they show you what is going on, give some quick instructions on what they are doing, but it is up to you, the viewer, to actually do it. Watching a 30 second job on TV is not the same thing! For example, if they pour a foundation you don't just go dig a hole and pour in concrete.

The magazine is exactly the same from what I have seen.

Save your money and get one of the other home improvement magazines. I get more info out of one issue of Family Handyman or Fine Homebuilding than I will ever get out of a decade's worth of This Old House. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars My absolute favorite magazine
Each month I am so excited when I receive my DF issue! I always read it cover to cover and learn so much about how to properly care for my dog. It has wonderful training tips and expert methods, talks about finding the right diet, profiles different breeds, and even provides stories and news straight from the dog world. And so much more! Another reason I like it so much is because I sent in two letters, and they published them both! That was exciting. I always learn something new with each issue! So I suggest you subscribe to DF if you are a dog lover, a dog owner, or both (like me).

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for Any Dog Owner!!!!
Dog Fancy is definitely one of the best magazines around for dog owners. There's information on practically every topic available, including health care, training, nutrition, exercise, safety, traveling, selecting a dog, an annual puppy issue, and even cleaning tips. While Dog Fancy praises shelter dogs and mixed-breeds, they also feature 3 breeds in each magazine--usually two fairly well-known dogs and a rare breed. Definitely a must-buy!

1-0 out of 5 stars check out Dog and Kennel
this magazine is not at all what i expected. if you want the most for your money, check out dog and kennel magazine.

Architectural Record displays great photography including very exotic and intriguing designs.

Ladies' Home Journal both empowers women and applauds their growing power by focusing on issues that are important to them. As the oldest women's service magazine in the country, it addresses a variety of topics for active women who are evolving in new directions. Highly informational features and articles highlight food and nutrition, health and medicine, beauty and fashion, home decorating and design, parenting and self-help, personalities, and current events. Features from past issues include interviews with celebs and women in the news, life changes for a healthy heart, and warming up with comfort food.

a front page title: is your health making you fat? it was related to some kind of hormones that causes a series of symptoms and make a woman to gain weight waist up.

4-0 out of 5 stars full of good info
Whenever I pick this up, I usually find several articles to pull out and mailto a friend. That's the mark of a good magazine in my opinion

4-0 out of 5 stars Keeps You Company
Ladies Home Journal provides practical advice on how busy women can be happier and more effective. The articles are straightforward, easy to read, interesting, and assume the reader is intelligent (which is more than I can say for many women's magazines). I especially like the health and fitness news because it usually pertains to women exclusively. The celebrity interviews are fun, too, and the recipes are easy enough for anyone to follow and enjoy. I give it four stars because I can always find at least one topic that really interests me in each issue. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect resource for traditional homes
This has been the perfect resource to meld my husbands and my tastes.I am a modernist and he love 18th century English.The difference in how we wanted to live almost broke us apart.Traditional Home offered enough modern living features to please me and enough classic old-world ones to satisfy my husband.It saved our marriage and has our new home looking right!

3-0 out of 5 stars A fun catalog of cheap, trendy things and ideas
I'm a graduate student. I live off my stipend. The sweats I'm wearing, I got at a garage sale for a quarter (talked down from a dollar) oh and I got this magazine for free, too. I also enjoy a great bargain, which probably puts me near the demographic for this magazine.

I just finished reading the second issue that was packed with gift ideas and home decorating ideas. I like the way that the editors sort through the cheesy stuff at discount stores and pick out the few gems that look like they cost much more. I just wish I could decorate my apartment. Sigh. I also enjoy seeing models wearing nice dresses and jewelry that are actually reasonably priced. This is the stuff that most people will actually be wearing, and I quite enjoy being practical. The do it yourself projects look easy (not Martha Stewart easy but real person easy) and reasonable and very trendy though I probably won't be taking apart my sink anytime soon.

Some of the advice in this magazine especially the investing and tax information I found particularly useless. Either the information is obvious or just putting of the inevitable until later. These types of articles seem to give advice about serious matters too flightily. I doubt anyone is going to refinance or not refinance his or her home based on a two-page article with very little information to back up the author's advice.

All in all, Budget living is fun to read, but I didn't really learn much from it. The topics that I didn't know much about, I still don't know much about. If you're frugal already, this magazine won't tell you anything that you don't already know, and if you really want to know about investing or managing your money you'll need to look elsewhere. Mostly this is just a fun catalog of cheap, trendy things and ideas. I'd give BL another half star for the nice graphic design if I could.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great magazine!
I really enjoyed this magazine! It was the first magazine that I read from cover to cover and twice, in a long time. The home design sections are interesting and offer unique projects, like the most recent issue details how to turn an old surf board into a table, however, I liked all of the other parts of the magazine a little bit better.
I liked the food section, as well. They list the price for each food item, which will vary for each person, but I liked it because they were keeping with the budget idea. I think that's what I liked the best--overall. This magazine calls itself a budget magazine and keeps with it. If they find a cool purse that's pricey or something like that, they say so and mention other items that are lower priced.
Overall a great magazine that's not pretentious...

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
This is probably the worst magazine I have ever read. The items that they recommend are either by no means "budget" priced since you can go to most department stores and pay the same price or far less, and/or are the most tacky, gaudy, flee market looking items you would never want in your home. Anyone with even a small amount of common sense can make better decisions on purchases all on their own - starting with NOT buying this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
Budget Living offers everything a thrifty girl could want! From clothes to financial advice it offers reasonable alternatives to so many items. I highly recommend this one!

2-0 out of 5 stars Just OK
This magazine is just ok. If you love Real Simple and Cooking Light (like I do) and you're looking for other magazines that are similar, you will be disappointed in Budget Living. I can read RS and CL from cover to cover every month and can't wait to get another issue. I've given Budget Living almost 12 tries and I've been bored with every single issue. I can't give specific examples because the publication has never offered me anything interesting or helpful that would be worth remembering. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great discovery at garage sale!
I came acrossed an older stack of this magazine at a garage sale for $1.00. I have never spent such good money, not only have I poured over every magazine at least twice, but everyone that has been to my home and picks one up, begs to take them home with them. I have now subscribed, and plan on saving every one indefinitley.

4-0 out of 5 stars I hate Mary Englebreit's stuff, but I love her magazine.
I can't stand the cherries, the cartoon scotty dogs, the rosy-cheeked kids, or the cutseyness of her artwork, but I seriously love her magazine. It's a home magazine for creative types-- not glue-gun-and-wooden-geese types, but truly passionate people (probably mostly women) who have a love of old things, a willingness to jump in and experiment on their homes, and a desire to "live the creative life."

Yes, you'll flip past some ads for her products, but inbetween you'll find pictures of homes decorated by their owners (not a hoity-toity design firm) and instructions for unique projects (dare I call them crafts?) that won't look--- well, like you did them yourself.

It's definitely a magazine I'd recommend-- even though I will never, never own a ME teapot, card, gift box, wall hanging, print, wallpaper, tea set, christmas tree ornament, hatbox, figurine, pillow, stationery, purse, journal, doll, rug, fork, candle, poster, screensaver, needlepoint kit, pincushion, or tin.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun, Sweet and Relevant! Perfect for Mom AND me!
This wonderful magazine covers a variety of home-happy topics such as decorating, gardening, cooking (lovely themed menus and yummy recipes), reading, pets and so much more. It arrives every other month and is devoured cover-to-cover immediately. Each issue contains ideas and articles for holidays and seasonal events, and even includes a "Breit Ideas" catalog of Mary Engelbreit-produced items in the back.

Seriously, I wish that this magazine were a weekly publication -- it is really that good -- but there is just NO way that all the great features would survive such a punishing schedule. I've been a subscriber since the premier issue way back in 1996, and have always been pleased and surprised at Home Companion's quality, relevance and cleverness. Even the advertisements (which do not overpower the issue's contents) are appropriately themed and often lead me online to look for items!

If you are looking for a gift for a mom, aunt, grandma or sister, this is a perfect selection. I had to get a sub for my Mom because I certainly wasn't giving up any of MY issues!

4-0 out of 5 stars Practical
For the discerning home owner who want ideas that are realistic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Comfort Magazine
Cover to Back Cover, I really enjoy this magazine. The stories are warm, wonderful and encouraging - follow your dream - kind of stories.
