        I used to be really bad. When I was in school (magazine journalism major) I had a ton of magazine subscriptions. I have significantly cut back since then. I do still have a Glamour, Shape, Self and Domino subscription. I don't think I am going to renew the Domino one though. This is the first year I got it and am not really into it.

          I'm so bad that I don't have subscriptions, I just buy them the day they come out b/c I can't wait! I mostly have an addiction to celebrity weeklies. I buy those religious. US Weekly, InTouch, Star, etc. I'm pathetic I know but I can't help it.

            Mike & I are horrible. I think we get a total of 15-20! We order them mostly from magazine subscriptions 5.95 by Discount magazine or Magazine Subscriptions Online from CheapMags.com or ebay, so we don't pay full price. We both take the train to/from work, so we're always grabbing a magazine for our trips. After we're done, I leave them in patient waiting rooms in the hospital where I work so others can read them (after blacking out my address of course!).

            Off the top of my head, I can think of:
            Us Weekly
            Cosmo
            Philadelphia
            Marie Claire
            Glamour
            Fitness
            Shape
            Self
            Entertainment
            Fit Pregnancy
            Sports Illustrated
            Time
            US News & World Report
            Maxim and another 1 like this
            2 or 3 other sports magazines

              If my Us Weekly doesn't come on Friday like it's supposed to, I go and buy In Touch or People to hold me over til it comes...lol!

                    I've cut significantly back since I moved in with fi. but here's what i get now:

                    People
                    Glamour
                    Sports Illustrated
                    Rachel Ray
                    Brides
                    Carribean Travel

                    and i like buying the Us Weekly and Modern Brides. Fi is into mags as much as me, he doesn't like me telling people this but he loves to read People more than i do! And he's constantly bringing home those free home sale mags they have at grocery stores. I have piles of them at home, he never throws them out.

                      this is actually a great gift for someone - a few years ago, my parents got dh 5 different magazine subscriptions for 12-18 months. i think they got him 3 car, 1 snowboarding, and one cooking (which was a women's mag, but my dad picked it). his parents also got him top gear, which is a british car magazine, so a subscription is like $200/yr. he said it was one of the best gifts he had ever received.
