Is there a magazine you like but for one reason or another don’t want to subscribe to? There are a few like that for me. Either the magazine is too expensive, there aren’t any free trials or opportunities to allow me to receive it at my price point, or there isn’t enough content to justify its purchase. Sometimes I get too overwhelmed with subscriptions and pare them down so that I only receive a few. If you find this to be the case, you might consider subscribing to the magazine’s free e-newsletter. For many, they include the same content, photos, and features on their completely free e-newsletter as they do their paper version that costs money. Bonus—I don’t feel obligated to read the articles just because I’ve paid money for them. If I don’t have the time or interest I hit delete.
