When i was young we never had perfume in the house because my mom had a VERY sensitive nose. so when i started getting teen mags and fashion mags(around junior high), i would never open the sample strips and save them for special occasions. if i did open them, it would only be a very small corner. at school dances i would have like 10 little unopened sample strips folded in my back pocket.

to this day, i NEVER open the samples. even though i throw the magazines away with the little strips still in them , i never open the perfume strips all the way, still just a small corner.

its funny the things you cherished when you were little and how they affect your habits today.

That's the first thing I do now, is rip out the samples! I used to love smelling them, but I swear there's too many in mags these days to where it's almost an instant migraine opening one!

My one magazine habit would have to be, as soon as I get my Glamour, I go straight to the back for the do's and don'ts and Glamour List. If nothing else, those will get read LOL!

Doesn't matter what the magazine, I go through first and pull out every single one of those cards and throw them away.. Drives me nuts (ok more nuts..). Lol

I get InStyle and the first thing I do is hit "The Look", "What's Hot Now" and "Best Look" sections then I start going through page by page from the back to the front!! Always have done thins differently or backwards.. Hehe

I read all of the user submitted stories (embarassing moments, best this, my bf did that) before any articles or editorials in the magazine.

I take out the cards, read all the stupid gossip or funny stories, then read everything else...and I do it back to front, no idea why.

I always tear out the cards first but I almost always read them from cover to cover!

I go through them, see if there are any freebies or good samples, toss out the subscription cards and anything else that interferes. Then I read all the reader-submissions first like Saje, then I read everything else.

Lol Solimar, I do that sometimes as well!

Hahah....when I was little I used to take a sharpie and draw eyeliner around all of the models eyes. My Grandma would get sooo mad when she'd go to read her Redbook!

Now I skim through and then in bed at night I read it cover to cover. I still look at the Models and think they need more eyeliner....

I always read magazines front to back except for the starsigns. I always save them until last

I HAVE to buy a Magazine when I'm in the check out line. Especially if someone on the cover is someone I would like to read about.

I LOVE reading magazines! The first thing I do is take all the advertisment cards out. I can't stand it when they fall out all over the place!

i skim through from cover to cover first, then go back and read the articles i'm interested in. then i cut out the articles that have good info and put them in plastic sleeves in a loose leaf binder to refer to later.

sometimes i even make collages from the interesting ad pics.
