In the end the best month labels were on my computer anyway - I found them in clip art!
I bought some cheap magazine boxes in the January sale last year and decorated alternate ones with felt-tip stripes.My collection has really grown since coming to France. Publishers over here bundle up back numbers and sell three at a time for about 4€. What a good idea! The bundles are available a fews times a year in the big supermarkets, but also in hospital shops and places you might be getting bored. In addition, I bought a year's worth of Mon Jardin, Ma Maison at the Troc, Broc, Solde one year - such a good idea to sell magazines second hand. Since I started buying them second hand, I've also started donating less interesting issues to the Charity Shop, as there is clearly a good market for them here.Until I started the Challenge of the Utmost Kind, I was buying too many French magazines, and too many UK ones whenever I visited. But I am sublimely grateful for my birthday gift of a year's Country Living! You can have too many magazines, but you can also have too few...There are 21 people in our No Frills magazine swap at the moment. They hail from North America to Japan, from England to Australia via France and Italy. I think there may be some VERY interesting magazines to be swapped!Please join us by clicking here!
