Spendyskirts: Magazine Subscriptions

December 19, 2011 @ 06:10 PM • Comments (2)

Real Simple
Organization, tips and tricks for everyday life, clearing the clutter

Dwell
Interior design, architecture, decorating, home technology

The New Yorker
Books, plays, essays, culture

I also recently purchased a subscription to HOW and Print magazines through fab.com, but I haven't had a chance to get more than halfway through my first issue of each.

In order for Operation: Move Out Eventually to be a success, I need to figure out where all of my money is going, and I frequently forget about things that have annual subscription fees, like Amazon Prime ($80), Flickr Pro ($25), Typekit ($25?), and The League of Extraordinary People Who Are Trying to Destroy Internet Explorer (all of the money). Magazine subscriptions fly under the radar, too, but not anymore.

I spend approximately $100-150/yr. to fill my room with reading material that I mostly forget to read. For now, I'm okay with that.

I check this morning...nothing new
I check the evening...nothing new
I check at 1:30 AM...SOMETHING NEW!!!!!!

Money does tend to seep out through many, tiny cracks in my sanity, so I know the feeling :)

I also forgot about all of the domain name registrations that I have to renew every year. And hosting costs, since some of the newer sites I've established are hosted by Dreamhost.

I rarely have trouble with money in video games (my Sims 3 characters have three or ten vacation homes and own pretty much every business in town). Too bad that doesn't rub off on my real life bank accounts. :(
