Do you buy any magazines?

Standing in line at the grocery store I noticed all the magazine's and I wondered how many people buy magazines these day? Before the internet magazine's were a big seller. Growing up I would use my babysitting money to buy Teen and Seventeen magazines. Now the only magazine I buy is Woman's World. I pick one up every week when I get my groceries. So do you buy magazines? If so which ones?

I used to read teen and seventeen as well, but no I don't. I was on this site where I got free magazines from and I ordered Cosmo.

I never buy magazines ,I was never a great one for buying them and you do save a lot of money by passing on them.

@Happy2BeMe I meant passing completely and not buying them at all but that's okay.

In the past I liked to buy magazines about the computer. However, today I haven't bought any kinds of magazines any more. As it is easy to find many information via the net and reading from the magazines is not necessary. So today some magazines, such as the fashion magazines will offer the customers some cosmetics samples or other little gifts. It is a kind of selling way.

They have to do something to sell them. So many people just go online. It is the same as the newspapers.

I don't purchase magazines because one of the local libraries near me gives away magazines that they no longer want, even though they're still fairly new. They're only a few months old.

Fitness and Shape are good magazines. I use to buy these. There use to be a magazine a few years back that was all stores is people's weight loss stories. I use to love that. It was such great motivation.
