Remember back when Budget Living was (sniff) canceled and everybody got wacky replacement subscriptions? I got Good Housekeeping and Chez Shoes got Redbook. I phoned to get my subscription changed to one that I might find slightly less insulting and decided on Shop Etc., which I usually one looked at for the amount of time it took me to walk over and put it into the recycling bin. I was pretty sure my subscription cycle had finally simply run out and then I got this letter:
Oh boy! Shop Etc. has been canceled as well and now I’m getting Redbook! The lesson here is quite clear, Hearst magazine subscriptions might be a bad investment.
