You may remember in my last post on magazines, bemoaning Domino’s demise, I wrote that after I cancelled all my magazines subscriptions a few years ago, Real Simple Magazine was the first one I re-subscribed to because I missed it, a lot! As much as I love many magazines, if I had to pick one it would be Real Simple. Ever since it came out a few years ago, it’s really lived up to the subtext on every issue: “Life Made Easier.” It has just the right mix of lifestyle, fashion, cooking but, most importantly, it is really in tune with what is happening right now. RS started publishing articles and tips to life in this economy sooner than many other lifestyle magazines – this month’s issue is no exception: the cover feature is “Live Well on Less” and has some great tips. Even though you may already do some of the stuff they recommend, the feature is still a great read.
The Real Simple website is another fabulous resource – what I really like about it is that it’s not just an searchable electronic version of the magazine’s archives. Instead, there is a lot of content that is unique to the website, and so useful, including the Simply Stated blogs. Even the archives are better presented in that timely articles are featured periodically. They might be from two years ago, but still on-point. Even more wonderful is the fact that the website content is free, so I can forward links to friends and not have to worry about them not being able to access the content if they are not subscribers.
So, next time you are looking for a magazine to curl up with, definitely check out Real Simple. Or take a look at their website.
