Top Five Magazines

So I've realized that I have a lot of magazine 7 (that I can think of).  This is not to mention that we get the paper daily, Joey has a subscription to some money magazine, and Logan and I each receive a Boy Scout magazine.  Oh, and Logan gets a Lego's magazine too.  It's a lot of paper. 

So, in conclusion, the following are my top 5:
  1. Entertainment Weekly - this lovely magazine keeps me up to date on the happenings in TV land, the movies, music, and books.  I find out a lot of things early and hear a little gossip at the same time.  And while Lost was on they provided very good coverage and recaps.
  2. Vanity Fair - the only one on the list that I don't receive anymore.   But really, they have such interesting and varied articles.  Usually there's one about a star each month, but it's not necessarily a current star - it could be Marilyn Monroe, for instance.  There's usually a couple of political articles - some I find interesting and some I just skip.  And there's usually something to do with Hollywood.  Overall, it's well rounded and interesting, but kind of lengthy because of the long articles.
  3. Good Housekeeping - of course, they give products the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, so how could I not love it?  Along with the seal though, they have lots of great tips and articles for a real household and family.
  4. Better Homes & Gardens - in my opinion, this magazine competes very closely with Southern Living, which I also receive (mom gifts me a subscription every year).  A lot of months, I even notice that their cover pictures are similar.  But for me, BHG is the winner.  It's easier for me to relate to, even though I do love some things about Southern Living, too (particularly the monthly house plan). 
  5. Parents - when I first had Logan I actually received a magazine similar to this one called Parenting as well.  Parents won out, however, because it provides more information in a more pleasant way.  I've picked up so many tips from this magazine, from potty training (every child is different) to napping (no longer applies to this mom).
