I hope you are enjoying this Sunday series of how to save a quick buck!
We have talked about websites that can generate income for you. Or at least score you some great gift cards at the end of the year.
We have discussed online blogs that help.
Every so often, I score free magazine subscriptions. It's because I check out those money saving blogs I mentioned. I have scored about five free magazine subscriptions. Then, my mother in law, always gets me one or two magazine subscriptions for Christmas.
Somehow, I end up receiving about 8-10 magazines in the mail each month. So, after I read them, what do I do with all these magazines? It seems wasteful to just throw them away.
I take them to Half Price Books.
Half Price Books are NOT the best when it comes to selling your books back. You can give them an entire box and get back $3.00. That kinda feels like a slap in the face to me, and I don't like pain. So I don't usually take my books there. I do however get back a pretty good return on my magazines.
If you take back your magazines during the month that they are current (preferably early in the month), they will give you a dollar or two back.
Okay, that doesn't sound like much. Let me do the math for you, though:
8 magazines x $1.00 each x 12 months = $96.00
Not bad for magazines that you got for free.
So next time you finish reading those magazines, don't toss them, go sell them!
Speaking of free stuff, did you enter this giveaway yet? Entering is simple, just pin something from the blog! Good luck!
