I don’t subscribe to magazines as a rule. I have little time and being rather stingy makes me even less tolerant of paying for items that stack up, unread and wasting money. But I’m a convert to one magazine of late- “All You”. Billed as the magazine that has, “hundreds of ways to save time and money,” I’d have to agree in part. For the novice homemaker, it likely does have hundreds of resources. Experienced old skinflints and veteran mothers, though, we are a tougher sell. But I’d have to say that even for this old hand mother there were at my last count, at least ten redeeming, useful articles in the recent issue.
Those ten, however don’t prompt me to write glowing reports, even though I did find some cost cutting tips, a few household cleaning ideas and several tax tips that enlightened me. But the coupons in each magazine, for you coupon hounds, those made it worth every penny of the $15 subscription I paid. Not only does All You include record numbers of sincerely useful coupons, it also lists them by page number, with the dollar amount neatly tallied.
In the February, 2010 magazine, you’ll score $47.13 worth of coupons for Nature Maid Vitamins, Revlon, N.Y.C. cosmetics, and sporting brand names like Dole, Neutrogena, Colgate and Hershey’s. Those pressed for time, can simply peer at the All You list, clip coupons on given pages and hustle off to the nearest sale. In the most recent two issues, I’ve found similar offerings. By my reckoning, the subscription is paid for (if you really utilize coupons) with the first issue. However, don’t buy the newsstand issues, as with all magazines,you’ll pay nearly twice the cover price.

This is one magazine worth sampling. If you want to check out the online version and print a few sample coupons out, All You has a wonderful, interactive site with several daily coupons available, (though you won’t get the full monty without subscribing). But if you need two coupons to nab a great deal, you can use one from the magazine and one printable from their site for this purpose.
