    Fire Do you get tons of Free Mags because of Budget101?

    Do you have a messload of subscriptions each month because of the free Magazines you've found on Budget101?

    Here's what I do with my Magazines.... Once I have read the magazine, I place a 2x4 Sticker over the Label (that contains my name/addy) and I drop them off at the following places:

    Waiting rooms in:
    • Car Dealerships- sportsman mags, field & stream, family magazines,etc
    • Doctor/Pediatricians Offices - family mags like good housekeeping, fitness, prevention, etc
    • Chiropractors Offices- family mags like good housekeeping, fitness, prevention, etc
    • Lawyers Offices - family mags, decor magazine, fashion magazines, etc.
    • Laundromats - any kind of magazine, children's books
    • Nursing Homes/ Senior Centers - Gardening mags, Good Housekeeping, fashion, elle, martha stewart, etc
    • Salons- Fashion magazines, they often show off great haircuts!




    I also do this when I come across children's books or coloring books that I don't need/want.


    If you would like to help promote Budget101.com and would like 2x4 stickers with "Compliments of Member {your username here} , please let us know. (Please only request these if you really intend to use them, as they are rather expensive to print/send; supplies limited.

    ~Enjoy!~

    This is a great idea Liss. I also like taking them to the Senior Centers, hospitals, hair salon and fitness centers.

    I usually just leave them to rot, but I like your ideas better, I get Nickelodeon magazine so if I dropped it off somewhere I'm sure some bored kid waiting for their parents to hurry up would love to read it.

    I give my magazines to a local woman, who sends them to the troops in Afghanistan.

    Liss, This is a wonderful idea. Recycle / Advertising. I take my magazines to my Chiropractor/Massage Therapist--the girls & other patients really enjoy them. My niece will ask me if I have any magazines that she can take to the salon that she works at..My sister in law also takes books & magazines that the family doesn't use any more, to the nursings home.

    I've been afraid to order the free magazines figuring I would get stuck with a bill in the end and then have a hassle on my hands.

    I live in an apartment complex, have started a magazine rack, I order all thinking SOMEONE will enjoy. After 1 month, Mike brings them to work!

    I have only received a couple of bills (normally from the higher end magazines). Just write CANCEL on the bill, never any further issues.
    Hope Everyone Is Enjoying The Day. Best Wishes From MN ~ Pamela
