$5 FRiDaY

AND WE HAVE A WINNER! Scroll down to see the answer ... And that was like in RECORD TIME, less than a half an hour for a correct guess to come in, and if you read through the post, there are clues embedded (well, one), plus, if you're on Twitter, I totally gave clues throughout the week leading to the $5 Friday question of the week! Thanks for playing! If you didn't get a chance to play, check out the comments to see how it's played out and come back next week for some more fun and your chance to win $5 next week!




This one should be really simple for you all out there.

Between Mr. Manic and I, we subscribe to a total of five magazines. Name two of them to win five bucks.

Hints:

Two are for pleasure.

Two are business/hobby related.

One is miscellaneous.

Four are specifically for me and hold no interest to Mr. Manic.

None of them are pornographic in nature.

You may each guess three times, two magazines per each guess.

GO! ....

I would make terrible guesses. But I will say that it seems like that is an excessive amount of magazines. Are you good about throwing them away each month, or do they get saved and pile up and grow into huge masses of unread paper cluttering up your house?

I'm a recovering compulsive magazine saver.

Panic -- I keep two of the five because they are the business/hobby related ones so I have piles of them. All the rest get tossed eventually. The one magazine is a new subscription that was a gift to me so I've only gotten a few months so far.

I will give some clues from what has been guessed so far:

The magazines I subscribe to are all monthly, no weeklies.

Out of all the guesses so far, one magazine is correct.

Babyzone and BettyConfidential are online websites so they are not magazines that can be delivered to home but good thinking Ginny as I work for both of those establishments! : )

In order to win the five bucks, the person who guesses must guess both magazines in their guess TOGETHER, and each person gets three guesses of TWO magazine guesses EACH, so it's wise not to shoot your load all at once.

Nice going ladies!

Plus, did anyone read the post that I said it was REALLY SIMPLE?

Hahahahh!

Kirsten said...

Yay me! Total guess ... the Redbook I guessed because you said it'd been mentioned, and everyone gets Redbook (Ok, maybe not everyone, but I do and it's inxepensive so I took a stab and thought that was it out of the ones mentioned that were monthly magazines) .....

And it was a total stab in the dark on Real Simple ...
