Blog: The Pile High Club--how NOT to become a member
MagHound



Clients always say to me, "Your house must be perfectly organized!" Not to toot my own horn, but it really is. I practice what I preach. However, there is one area in which I advise my clients but do not follow my own advice: I have excessive magazine subscriptions. My previous professional background includes being an art director and graphic design at different magazines, so I'm hooked. It's like "professional development" for me. Or at least that's how I justify it.

I currently have five magazine subscriptions and my husband has four. To boot, my Aunt just gave my kids a subscription to National Geographic for Kids as a Christmas gift. Great! Still, even with all that paper coming into the house each month, I am organized, because I am militant about getting rid of last month's magazines as each new issue arrives. So even though we have 10 (!!) magazine subscriptions, they do not take over the household.

If you, however, are having trouble keeping on top of your subscriptions and may want to switch out a gift subscription that is not to your taste, I thought I'd mention this awesome service. Maghound, a service of Time, Inc., allows you to swap out magazine titles whenever you want—sort of like a Netflix for magazines allowing you to continually expose yourself (and your family) to different print styles and subjects.

In addition to magazine swapping, you can cancel your service altogether without any hassle as members are not held to an annual contract. The flexibility is awesome! With over 200 magazine titles to choose from, it's easy to choose magazines that suit your family's tastes. You can place an introductory order for one of three tiers allowing either three, five, seven titles a month (and you can easily add a la carte titles for only a $1 each). Check the website today and enjoy a free, 30 day membership!

Favorite Websites

  • The Sartorialist
    This site appeases my hunger for all things New York, reminds me of my time there, and gives me great ideas for unconventional looks.
  • Toffee To Go
    They are located in Tampa, very near me, but they deliver/ship nationally. They have THE BEST toffee EVER. It's buttery, salty, sweet--all my favorite things in one bite.
  • The Container Store
    I know this is a no-brainer for an organizer...but this place really turns me on!
  • The Poetry Foundation
  • Because I Said So (blog)
    As a mom myself, this mom of 6 (!!!) has me in stitches.
  • Michael Buble
    If I wasn't happily married, I might be stalking him. Bar none, the best voice and best sense of humor!

Quotes That Move Me

  • General H. Norman Schwarzkopf
    "The truth of the matter is, you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it."
  • Ivern Ball
    "Most of us ask for advice when we know the answer but we want a different one."
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson
    "The secret of education is respecting the pupil."
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson
    "Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen."
  • Abigail Van Buren
    "The best index to a person's character is how he treats another person who can't do him good, and how he treats people who can't fight back."
  • Dorothy Galyean
    "Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere."
  • Aristotle
    "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
  • Mark Twain
    "To be satisfied with what one has; that is wealth. As long as one sorely needs a certain additional amount, that man isn't rich."
  • Jackie Kennedy
    "If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do matters very much."

Places I'm Dying to Visit

  • Hawaii
    Any how, any way, any time.
  • Los Cabos, Mexico
  • China
  • Japan
  • Alaska (via cruise ship)
  • Marbella, Spain

Places I've Already Been

  • Australia (Sydney)
  • New Zealand
  • Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora
  • London
  • Paris
    Spent only one day here (took the Chunnel from London when I was there) but it was one amazing, beautiful day where I walked the flea markets, visited the Louvre, people-watched and used all 6 senses to experience it.
  • Trinidad & Tobago
    My husband is from here, so we go several times a year to visit family.
  • Italy (Milan, Vicenza)
  • Jamaica

Things I'd Like To Do Before I Die

  • Run a leg with the Olympic torch before the games begin
  • See the monarch butterflies migrate to Mexico
  • Ride a horse on the beach (in the water)
  • See a prize fight (boxing) in Las Vegas
  • Run the NYC Marathon
    I ran the Disney Marathon in 2000 (pre-kids). Would love to run another post-kids, to prove I can.
  • Have washboard abs.
  • Eliminate self doubt.
  • Own an apartment in Manhattan.
  • Watch the ball drop in Times Square on New Year's Eve.
  • Take an RV trip down the coast of California.
