Another magazine I subscribe to which has some cool ideas is Backwoods home magazine.
It is like Mother USED to be, without all that advertizing inside.
I like it for the home town feel you get and a lot of practical tips. Like steppin back in time sometimes.
,I get their monthly newsletter also.
I ordered the whole shebang...in case prices go up.
Just stay off their forumn....it gets nasty.
I try not to recommend to many places, this one is worth it if you want this type of information.
