I received a free trial of Real Simple years ago when it first came out. Due to the high quality and interesting features, I subscribed right away. I am still a subscriber and I often give Real Simple subscriptions to those I love. The subscriptions are not cheap. The lowest I can find is $24 a year and it is a monthly publication.
To begin with, Real Simple is simply beautiful to page through. They use thick paper and high quailty ink. They feature plenty of information in an effort to help simplify your busy life. This includes organization, resources, shopping, recipes, and stories of real women with real problems needing solutions.
I always enjoy paging through my thick issues. It takes me a few hours to get through them because I actually look at every article, whether or not I decide to really read them. There is a lot of page space dedicated to advertising still, if that bothers anybody.
