Free Better Homes & Gardens subscription

n179.1202.03.01I’m a magazine junkie.  Love ’em all and if they’re free, so much the better (wait, does that make me a magazine whore? – don’t answer that).

Get a one-year subscription to Better Home & Gardens, courtesy of freebizmag.  It’s completely free, I’ve used them for free mags for years and the only downside is slogging through a buncha pages of “don’t you want this one, too, for cheap?.”  But just say no and you’ll score!  Of course, there may be might just be a free business publication that interests you, too…

And the $5/2 Almay coupon returns!

The $5.00 off any two Almay Cosmetic Products coupon has returned.  No, it’s not a reset, just added wording to include cosmetic removers…possible huge moneymaker if you can find those smaller size plastic jars at Walmart.  Last time the shelf price was about $1.15, but again, it got to be a game of hide and seek.  Well, if you’re out there looking for the Hydroxy chocolate shakes anyway…
