Freebie Magazines

If it’s free, it’s for me! One of my titas, a family friend, would say. I don’t really agree because it’s an excuse to hoard unecessary stuff. But when it comes to magazines, I can be a bit lenient. They are light and easier to get rid off when it’s time to declutter. I also love just leafing through them when relaxing on weekends.

Here’s some free magazines I love getting:

Free Magazines!

Edible Vancouver

There’s Edible magazines are published in various locales. I’m not sure if it’s free everywhere but the one in Vancouver is. I love the photos and the articles. I don’t really try out recipes because I don’t cook that much these days. This season there’s a good article about Syrian food that made me excited to try. Many Syrians from all walks of life now call this city their home. Vancouver is such a diverse city that different cultures contribute to the food scene around here. Yay more yum for all of us!


Old National Geographic Magazines

Okay this is a cheat. It’s not free but it almost is if you get them from thrift stores. This one magazine was 10 cents! It’s a National Geographic Traveler from April 2007 that also featured Vancouver. Oooh I was curious what Vancouver looked like 10 years ago. It’s pretty much the same in terms of what to do or see like visit the Granville Market or hike at Deep Cove. Some places and restaurants though no longer exist.

Airline Magazines

Complimentary inflight goodies! I look forward to these in my flights. Haha as if I actually go on so many flights. No, not really which is why I do take the time to read through them and I usually take them with me. Here’s just a tiny peek at a really old, 2012 old, Mabuhay magazine from Philippine Airlines.


There are magazines available to borrow in the local libraries where I live. Also when I visit my tita’s house I just indulge in reading whatever magazines are lying around. Mostly she buys home decor and style ones.ย  I was and am really into mags free or otherwise but I’ve never spent my own money on them.

I’m curious, do people still buy magazine subscriptions? What free and paid magazines do you like to read?

  1. I remember when I was younger, I used to collect Total Girl and K-Zone Mag. Hahaha. We also had the Seventeen magazines from the US every time our grandmas come home for vacation. ๐Ÿ™‚
