Boo! Hiss! I really didn’t get a puppy. Poor Harley is still patiently waiting for a fluffy, slobbery brother or sister, as we continue to ruin her life by affixing reindeer antlers and such. I mean, I’m not an expert or anything, but I’m pretty sure that look has “devistation” written all over it.
The good news is, that I’m not a complete liar. I did in fact get a dog of a different sorta-kind. Ladies (and gents) I present to you my newest, awesomest monthly subscription:
Update (2012) – Sad to say maghoud closed for biz-nass. Boo hiss.
I got a Maghound subscription from my ma and pa in law! It’s sorta-kinda close to getting a puppy right? I’ve talked about Maghound before here and it’s been on the list of stuff I’m Jonesin’ for, but now it’s mine, all mine! Yippee!
For those of you who are not aware of this gem, here’s the scoop: Maghound is an online magazine subscription membership service. What the “h” is that, right? It’s awesome in the form of monthly paper presents, that’s what the “h” it is. In a nutshell, you sign up and choose one of the tier packages available (i.e. 5 magazine titles for $7.95 per month), you get to choose, change and manage the magazines you get each month.
That’s only $7.95 for 5 titles, so you are literally paying $1 buck and fitty-nine-cent per month for each title. No seriously. It’s that cheap and you get to pick whatever magazines you want and change them out whenever you want. Don’t worry – you are not stuck with those reject magazines that no one reads anyway. They have a great selection which pretty much includes all of the on-shelf magazines (from what I noticed). I chose the 3 title package since I’m already getting some magazines in the mail from previous subscriptions. For only $4.95 per month, I’m getting:
In-Style for my fashion fix
Every Day with Rachel Ray for my house-wifey/cooking fix
Shopsmart for my new and cool product fix
Um, how cool is this? I love getting magazines each month, but it can get pricey if you order them separately. Plus, if you order something new and you get bored with it or want to change things up, you are locked in for the full subscription term. With Maghound, you are not stuck and you can change it up as you like. Can you say “AWESOME”? I can. Awesome. Okay, gotta go feed the dog. And, when I say “feed the dog” I mean “stuff my face with junk” before 2012 ruins my life by making me be healthy.
