I'm a bit of a magazine whore.

There I said it. From over sized glossy fashion rags to tiny hand bound zines, monthly or bi-monthly they arrive to be cherished for the next week or so then set aside to be forgotten, retrieved occasionally for a forgotten article or recipe. While I enjoy them, it feels like such a waste. So with most of my subscriptions coming to a end I've chosen to do without all but my beloveds Croq, Bust and my new favorite Wired (Which at only $10 for a year wasn't a hard choice). Insert clever way to still get my fashioney, crafty, grass roots goodness without the clutter and well the hefty subscription rates. I'm talking about N.E.E.T. of course.



Filled with amazing treasures from indie businesses, dreamy fashions, D.I.Y projects and eye popping photos. Not to mention interesting articles with neet peeps. One thing I really love and find slightly dangerous about this online mag is when you see a uber cute item featured you just click on it and it takes you to the site that sells them. Another online read that I always look forward to is Craftier, a bi-monthly jaunt of tutorials, artist spotlights and up and coming projects and events.



Not to be missed my lovelies. So now that I will have a slightly smaller stack of magazines I've been on the look out for a unique rack to put them in. I've never actually owned a mag rack mainly because I've never been to impressed with the boring bulky builds that I always associate with keeping my rags neat and tidy.



This ditty is a serious contender in my search. I adore the tea pot shape and the good folks at paper doll wood shop Paper Doll Wood Shop just happen to offer this beauty in turquoise. How can I resist? No seriously.

Here's to happy reading and less clutter!

I love reading mags too. That magazine holder is so cool!

I use to be really cool and recycle them into neat things. Now we seem to read them over and over then recycle them...how boring. That is such a cute container to house them though!

So easy to get addicted to pretty glossy pages! I am addicted to Somerset publications! Though I very much limit my purchases of them! Have to check out your recommendations here!

Nicomi, I'm seriously sitting her wondering why had I had not thought to do that?! For reals. I even came so close to buying a paper bowl over the weekend. Egads! Sometimes I wonder what does go on in this head of mine.


Distressing Delilah, I have quite a hefty load of Somerset pub zines. That was one of the few I never had a subscription to but very well should have.
Check em out!

I'm a magazine whore as well.

I love magazines too!! I recently stopped some of my subscriptions as well. But I still miss them and sometimes I go to the book store just to check them out.

I love N.E.E.T, but I did not know about the other online magazines, so thanks for sharing.

Magazines are the greatest. I just found out about an online one that is pretty cool. It's called Viva La Moda. You should google it.

Thanks for all the great magazine names. I've been looking for a few new ones to write for.

Thanks for the great magazine ideas. My husbands family does a magazine swap so they get more use out of each subscription. Once finished with one they send it onto the next person. It's great.
