I have been getting this magazine for over a year now (my hubby hooked up with free magazine subscriptions and thought I would like this one, he is so sweet) any ways, they have some really cool DIY project and ideas. And craftster.org's very own Leah was featured this month.
Just wondering what anyone elses opinion of the mag is. I just think some of there stuff isnt realistically "budget". But they give me ideas like "hey, I know I can do that for cheaper".

how funny you should post this ... i was just going to hunt down the old budget living thread and resurrect it.

i subscribed on an impulse after picking up an issue at the bookstore, but i'm cooling off to this magazine. it's eye candy for me, but that's about it. the ethic seems less diy and more "buy hip stuff." it seems to target upwardly mobile young professionals whose "budget living" is about equivalent to my "wildest dream"!

as for reasons i dislike the magazine (falling outside of the target audience doesn't usually stop me), i find the writing and tone annoying. all the alliteration and stupid perky phrases make me feel like i'm reading teen. example: "so stow that ho-hum hanging bag in the hanger (supposed to be hangar?) and transfer to a fancy flier built for strutting down the runway."

that said, kudos to leah for scoring a feature! the picture was great and it's really cool to see that she's becoming so successfu!

I say Nay.  I subscribed to it because I had heard that it was really cool but I am dissapointed. There aren't really any projects in it I would ever make and it just doesn't seem to have much substance.  I won't re-subscribe.

I've also decided it's a magazine I can do without - I like some of the tips but not enough to keep subscribing.  I may buy it once in a while if a particular issue looks good.

Money-wise, I think the stuff in the mag is not what I would call budget; however the types of homes they feature are what draws me in- they are much more interesting as reflections of the personalities of the people that created them, not cookie-cutter House Beautiful frou frou. This recent issue had the house of Matt Maranian (guy who wrote Pad) featured.

It's kinda the only home interioprs style mag for people who are kinda hipsters but not capital-D-Design, freaks, y'know?

I think it's a good mag, but it's not DIY completely.  It just has a section called 'Making It'.

i subscribed to this once through a company and never recieved it. i can't find the information though to contact them. arg. anyway, i think i'll sign up again. though i do wish it was a bit more "budget" than it is, some of it's recommendations aren't budget at all.

They haven't informed the subscribers or offered refunds, so I called my credit card company.  They are disputing the charge and gave me a credit for the renewal I ordered in January.  If you have a subscription that you ordered recently via credit card, you might want to call and dispute.

It's a shame - it was a very cool magazine, and it stinks that hte website is still up, offering $5 bonus subscriptions.  I wonder who's paying for the web hosting?
