My family likes magazines. My husband especially loves magazines. One day recently he came home from work one day talking about some car magazine his coworker had. I went online and found what he was probably talking about and thought about ordering it for him. But I stopped myself.
The magazines keep flowing into our home. And even though we recycle, it seemed so wasteful to have that amount of paper coming through. And beyond that, the piles of magazines certain family members refused to part with continued to grow. And suddenly it happened. I found his car magazine online. The clouds parted, the birds sang, and a whole new world was introduced. Online car magazines would be the answer.
I started the online car magazine campaign slowly. I left online car magazines open in our browser. I mentioned one night at dinner that I had been reading car magazines online and how cool that was. I suggested that maybe there were other magazines available online. Then came recycling day. I mentioned that since I saw all those online car magazines that I was thinking about all the unnecessary recycling our family does. I was met with blank stares. Then came the day when my husband wanted to renew a separate magazine subscription. I reminded him about the car magazine online and then I explained that if had the online car magazine subscription he could read it on his tablet instead. My suggestion was meant with frustration and then finally acceptance.
I used to think I was someone who needed to hold magazines in my hands to get complete enjoyment from them. But I adjusted, just as my family did. After reading online car magazines, a new trend settled down on our family and I believe it is for the better.
