When I was a young married woman I used to buy individual copies of Family Circle.  It's always been a good value, it has tons of recipes and interesting articles that suit the average household.  The magazine is not pretentious, it leans towards family and family values and is a good thing to donate when you are done with it.  The covers are always eye catching and the index helps you find whatever you want easily.  I now subscribe to Family CIrcle thereby getting it earlier than the newstands.  I can't wait to see what's inside as every month holds my attention and I love trying their new recipes.

I was considering giving a subscription to a friend. However, when I paged through a recent one, I was shocked at the amount of drug advertising. I stopped subscriptions to Prevention and Readers Digest in the past for similar problems. Drugs don't make people healthy, and only create more problems. Don't do drugs-especially "FDA approved" ones.

Family Circle Magazine

Comments about Family Circle Magazine:

Got a family, love to read? Then this is the magazine for you. Where to start with this great read, why the cover of course. Each issue is always so clever. The current one is themed for Easter with cute ideas for edible decorations, such as coconut chicks, and egg shaped cookies. This will get your attention for sure if you love to bake or are into arts and crafts. Now based on the title, this is really for families and moms, not to say that men can't or shouldn't read this, but it is geared for family life. The table of contents is broken down into handy sections like home life, fashion, family matters, health, and then recipes. There is usually a feature with a celebrity, about their life or movies they are in, or types of food they cook. Another cool thing in this magazine is the sweepstakes and give always they offer every month. The colors are vibrant and the pictures always high quality, and the cover always gets my attention. I subscribe monthly and love this magazine!

I love the recipes!

By 

from USA

Comments about Family Circle Magazine:

What I love about Family Circle Magazine is the abundance of unique recipes that it has throughout it. Family Circle has a lot of great articles about children, recipes, and maintaining positive relationships. The journalism is written pretty well, unlike most other magazines. The recipes are also easy to follow, unique, and taste great. Magazines do not have much use anymore, but I love using Family Circle to clip out the recipes and put them in a book! It's much easier than looking recipes up online! I recommend this magazine if you want a good read.

Billing problems

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Family Circle Magazine:

I read FC for 20 years and noticed over the year that the quality of the overall mag was declining. After receiving a bill for a sub that I prepaid and repeatedly trying to solve the issue, I decided that I didn't need the aggravation and did not renew.

My life would be empty without my Family Circle.

By 

from Valparaiso, IN

Comments about Family Circle Magazine:

Family Circle magazine is my families favorite magazine. I use it when I am looking a quick craft for my Girl Scout troop. It has  very simple and delicious recipes too. My daughters love to take turns picking one out to help me prepare.  My 9 year old daughter even reads the magazine when I am through with; which I have no problem with. Except for the time there was a cleaning tips for your closet article. My daughter read it and then took to telling me how unorganized my closet was and how I should fix it.  I also love the price. Everytime I turn around something is going up in price, not my favorite magazine though. All I can say is "Keep up the good work Family Circle!" Cutie13.

I am in Joy every month when my Family circle is in MaIlbox!

By 

from Venice, FL

Comments about Family Circle Magazine:

     I love Family Cicle.  They have a lot more of everything and a lot less advertisements.  

     I get awesome recipe ideas for entertaining, Making beautiful cakes and the stories are great too.

     I love when they have on dollar off coupons for food products.  Evene when they don't the magazine is packed and has my full attention from start to finish.

     This is the Magazine I read out in the nice Florida weather on my Lanai with a great cup of homemade iced caramel and creme coffee.

     This is a special treat for me and you cannot beat the price.  YES, they have this and Ladies Home Journal at the Dollar Tree too, so I spend the same amount to have it delivered! 

     I would rather be surprised by getting my favorite Magazines in the mail, they don't break the bank, get my mind working on creating  new things.

     When I am done with the mag I cut out favorite Flower, cakes, nature pics, scan them into my computer and make my own Gourgeous stationery, place cards and thank you notes.

Family Circle Magazine is good reading!

By 

from Bethlehem, PA

Comments about Family Circle Magazine:

Family Circle Magazine came in today's mail with the first day of next month as the expiration. I did not have a subscription so I was pleased to see an old favorite come yet two minutes later was slightly sad when I saw this was a just once mailing by someone kind.

I flipped thru it briefly and saw a nice coupon for Cetaphil practically fall out on me. The family and dog article looked promising with it's pick a pup checklist. We already have a dog but have been thinking about getting him a companion when my son goes to college next summer.

I agreed with their opinion on healthy fast food having Wendy's large chili on the list. Their chili is one of my favorite guilt free fast food items. I saw the chick-fil-a char grilled chicken salad and until the article was not aware of that item being at that restaurant.

Of the three new scents for Febreze rub offs I preferred New Zealand Springs. For a thin magazine this APRIL 1st 2011 issue was full of interesting things to read.

Family Circle is good But has too many advertisements.

By 

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Family Circle Magazine:

**Family Circle Magazine, is nice to have to give home Ideas. It does, however, have way too many advertisements. It seems as though you pay for what you can see on TV, and not enough of the show. I would like to see more family oriented articles, less advertisements. **

well rounded magazine for a mom of a family

By 

from Apex, NC

Comments about Family Circle Magazine:

***Family Circle Magazine***Published by MeredithThis magazine comes out about once a month with 2 extra issues during the year. Quick and easy recipes, do-it-yourself decorating, fat-fighting secrets and health alerts, family advice, great ideas for getting organized, money and time saving tips, and so much more! You will find a lot of recipes that really are quick and easy and pretty good that your family will like. Their do-it-yourself advice is very good as well and always is simple to do. Their articles on fat-fighting (aka health and nutritional area) seems to have expanded in the recent months since that is where the Anerican focus is lately. They give lots of advice on family issues from A-Z (not all at once but some each month). Of course they very much are into getting your life (house) organized as well as money and time. There really is so much more to this simple little magazine with the big emphasis on simple and easy!
