When I first got married and was buying a lot of big expensive “firsts” like a microwave, vacuum, VCR and car, I fully relied on shopping advice from the Consumer Reports shopping guide. I even subscribed to it that first year.
It never failed me when I followed its advice, so when they introduced the quick and easy shopping guide, ShopSmart Magazine about 8 years ago, I picked one up off the newsstand, and have been buying it and following its shopping advice ever since.
What I love most about the magazine is that they’ll tell you if something is “crap”. (My word, not theirs.) ShopSmart is about helping you spend your money wisely on products that are worth it.
I’ve learned which sunscreens and bug sprays are the best, which store brands beat big brands and how to pick the perfect paint. It’s stuff we all want to know, and it’s presented in a visually striking way.
Plus, it’s totally honest.
The current May issue contains goodies like the best dark chocolate bars, how to save money on window treatments and advice on what to do with your old electronics.
When I first started buying ShopSmart, it was only available quarterly, but now it’s published six times a year! I can’t say enough good about it. Truly. I absolutely love it!
It would make an AWESOME Mother’s Day gift!
