What with electronic bill paying, the advent of email and then texting, our mailbox is often pretty barren. Imagine my surprise when I received a magazine out of the blue. I used to subscribe to Good Housekeeping for years, but as time went by, ladies’ magazines have had less and less relevance in my life.
I don’t want 25 ways to incorporate jalapenos into our diet. With only a small porch now, an outdoor living guide is wasted on me. I don’t need to know America’s best parks for camping with kids. And even though I’m sure I could use it, it’ll be a cold day in hell before I spend $89 on eye serum.
After stopping payment but still receiving issues for almost a year, I only managed to peel Woman’s Day magazine out of my life this spring. This freebie Good Housekeeping issue was okay, but after reading that if I were to sign up for a subscription it would renew and renew and renew into perpetuity and the only way to cancel would be to call an 800 number, likely manned for 7 minutes of every other day, I decided NOPE.
