Free Magazines! And a Free Book! And Karma!

From time to time magazines offer free subscriptions in a blatant attempt to increase their readership.  Which is a blatant attempt to be able to charge more for advertising.  Which is blatantly fine, as long as it’s blatantly free to me. And you.

My nephew will be excited that he can get a free one-year subscription to Maxim.

If you have different interests perhaps you’d prefer  free subscriptions to Forbes, Dog’s Life , Interview and/or Woman’s Day.  And if you’re interested in all five then I think you’re a really interesting person.  If, however, they will sit untouched on your coffee table until you toss them into the recycling bin nine months later, please save some trees and don’t  bother.  Just sayin’.

And for those of you who haven’t  yet heard, Suze Orman’s latest book Suze Orman’s 2009 Action Plan is available for free at Oprah.com through today. Go to Oprah’s site to find out more.  Thanks Suze, for being smart enough to know that the goodwill you’re generating by offering this for free (and saving so many of our lovely trees at the same time) will pay off in the end.  Of course with the recession no one will have the money to buy your future books, but you’ll be rich in karma, baby.  Karma!

Lackadaisical Housekeeping Seems More Accurate

Recently I received an e-mail from a woman wanting to interview me for an article she was writing for a “national publication”. She’d seen my article about how I got Comcast to lower my bill with just a phone call, and she wanted to find out what I did and how I did it.

Being that I’ve never completely given up my adolescent quest for fame (albeit fifteen (or even three) minutes), and though we already have a Paris Hilton, I demurely accepted the invitation. I joked with my friend that the national publication was likely Cat Fancy, though the joke was not as well appreciated since the friend has two cats herself.

This morning Margarette called, but I was outside wrestling with a witch (Seriously. It’s 60 degrees here and I had a plastic witch taped to my wonderful slide-screen door. The witch had to go, and she decided to fly away rather than be taped to my dirty garage door. I had to clean it for her so the tape would stick. Stupid witch.).

I called her back and waxed poetic about the great deal I got, other things I do to save money (I even confessed to buying some holiday gifts at garage sales – they were brand new items!) and how I marvel that frugal is now chic.

She then tells me that the article is for Good Housekeeping! Huh. That’s not Cat Fancy, is it?

She asked for my first and last name, which I was happy to give. It did bring up an issue, though, about my anonymity on this blog. I’ve chosen to be BeThisWay and not divulge my name, for reasons of safety and anonymity.

I’m happy to report that my principles flew out the window faster than that plastic witch and I’ve decided that fame is more important than anonymity and, apparently, safety. After all, I’m on Facebook now, so the gig is up.

I am such a fame whore. Though it’s funny that I’d be mentioned in an article in Good Housekeeping when mine is…not.

Deal of the Day April 6, 2008

Here’s a good deal for magazine readers. Personally they’re not a good frugal choice for me – I never wind up reading them.

But if you will actually read them, or if you’re looking for a good, inexpensive gift, then this deal is for you!

Select magazines from Amazon are instantly rebated at checkout to ring up at just $7. Stay up to date on the latest with titles like Self, Parenting, Family Fun, Marie Claire, Glamour, Ready Made, O at Home, and more. They don’t give an expiration date exactly, but it does say “during April”.
