Hm. Maybe they should have actually paid for some writers instead of recycling old Good Housekeeping stuff and repackaging advertisers' press releases as stories. The whole magazine was a low-budget knock-off of Woman's World. And how sad is that?

I am so sad that it folded. I really enjoyed tthe magazinee. it felt fresh and new geared more to me a mid thirties modern working woman and mother instead of woman's world which is so bland and boring my mom won't read it!

Much of the magazine was homemaking which I enjoyed. It was something the ordinary homemaker could use. It was a good magazine and the older magazines of Family Circle and Womans Day have this market niche, but with a few modern medical and business articles, it may have had a greater reach in the market. I will miss it.

I'll miss the magazine. I liked it much better than Woman's World, which was the same stuff every week.

To tell you how much we enjoyed the publication I will list just some of the stores he looked at= Target,Save Mart, Raley's,K Mart,Walgreens,Convenice Stores,Wal Mart etc. This should tell you how much we enjoyed the reading,coupons,contest etc. We really hope the Company can regroup and start publishing this great magazine!!!!!!

I had just entered a subscription and am very upset to learn that the magazine has folded!
Were subscribers not due an advance notice from the publisher?? You could not find a more faithful reader than I. I drove miles to find an issue and was delighted to finally be able to subscribe. Very disappointing!!

As everyone else, I've been looking everywhere for my favorite magazine. I decided to check on line and am very disappointed to fine that it folded. I don't subscribe to any magazines and rarely by any other than Quick and Simple. Great ideas, recipes, suggestions, etc. I will truly miss it and hope it gets back on the shelves soon.

I too will miss the magazine. It was easy to get through without having to dedicate an entire day. And I always found something intersting and / or useful. Maybe they'll regenerate it.

Man, this really stinks. I loved this mag, I subscribed to it. I liked everything about it, the layout, colorful pictures and of course the quick and simple advice. I liked it better then any other women's home magazine.

I loved this magazine! I'm so sad that it folded. I have looked all over town for it, and when I decided to purchase a subscription, I found this out. I hope they can salvage this!

I am sooooooooooooo upset over this news. I really loved this magazine and could hardly wait for the next one. I had looked everywhere for this weeks. Is'nt there any way it can be started back up. From all the comments, it sounds as if I'm not the only one who feels this way.

I will really miss this magazine! I enjoyed reading it and loved entering the contests. It was nice to have a new one every week...not to mention how easily I could tuck it into a bag or the car and read at least 1-2 articles in a spare minute. Very disappointing!!
