Aren’t magazines like a mini-vacation, wrapped up in glossy paper and just waiting for you at the end of yet another LONG day (be it at the office, with the kids, or any combination therein). Sometimes my magazines have to wait a few weeks for me to get around to them. That’s just how life goes when you are juggling so many things: personal time takes a back seat.
But there is one exception: when the new issue of All You Magazine comes out, I am ALL OVER THAT BAD BOY! I read it the day I get it. Every time. Without exception. It is my very favorite magazine of all time, and if you have never experienced the joy of reading an issue, let me suggest that you give it a try. It used to be exclusively sold at Walmart, but now the floodgates are open and you can find them at many different locations! I found mine at my local grocery store, Bi-Lo.
Why I Love All You Magazine
It’s simple, really. I love All You Magazine because it saves me money every single month. And I’m not talking about $1. I’m not even talking about the price of the magazine, itself. I would estimate that it saves me anywhere from $10-$200 every month. I’m totally serious! It has the BEST tips and tricks for stretching the money you do have. It also gives you ideas for generating more income or finding other creative ways to meet the needs of your family without breaking the bank (clothing swap, anyone?). Here are just a few examples of how All You saved the day for me this month.
1. Free Food? There’s An App for That!
In the July issue of All You, there’s a fantastic article all about apps that can help you save money with ease. I downloaded the app Kids Meal Deals after it was suggested in the article, and then went about my business. Last week we had a cookout planned for one of our evening meals. It’s July…the perfect time of year to do that! Only this is what the sky looked like at 4:30 when we were ready to get the grilled fired up:
We spent $10.35 for all 4 of us to eat. We only purchased one “adult” meal, and got two 99 cent kid meals to go along with it. Our kids are young enough that they won’t finish their meals, so we took full advantage of that and just polished off what they couldn’t eat. Don’t judge!
2. Coupons for Useful New Products!
So last week my beautiful glass olive oil dispenser broke. It was my fault. I knocked off the counter in a less-than-graceful move while cleaning up. It shattered into approximately 4,000 pieces. In other news, our floors are super shiny due to having a very expensive oil treatment! So I needed a new oil dispenser, but just didn’t want to have to spend time and money procuring a new one. Lazy? Maybe, but it is just the truth. I wasn’t in the olive oil container shopping mood, what can I say? And then I saw a coupon in All You for some olive oil. It was a brand I had never tried. I picked it up because saving $1 on something we need is good.
You guys, I can put off my olive oil dispenser shopping indefinitely, because All You just introduced me to a product that eliminates the need for one!!! Maybe I’m more excited about this than I should be, but this is one product that just blew my mind this month. I would have never noticed it without All You.
Do you real All You? If not, there’s no time like the present to start reading and start saving!
