Holy Guacamole or Onion Dip or Pimento Cheese!!!

Oh, the bloggy world. It is a treasure trove of helpful information and money-saving tips. Like the one I am about to pass along to you.

But first, a story. You're surprised, I know.

A couple of years ago, my sister, Jenn, called me. (Yes, she's called me since then. Just stay with me here.)

"Hey, Shell, what do you think about Southern Living lately?"

"You know," I replied, "They've changed it, and it's bugging me. My subscription is just about to come due, and I don't think I'm going to renew it."

"Me too!" my sister practically lept through the phone to agree with me. "I just let my subscription lapse."

We had both been Southern Living faithfuls for many, many years. We loved the recipes and the home decorating tips. We loved the beautiful photographs and stories about the South. I read each issue from cover to cover. Because, if you didn't know it already, I'm a Northern girl who longs to be Southern. I think it's all those years of reading Southern Living.

Lo and behold, we weren't the only ones feeling this way. Boo Mama had had it too--I read it on her blog. And on this post that she wrote about Southern Living, she got an amazing response from her readers who felt the same way.

I guess Jenn and I weren't the only ones.

Recently though, Boo Mama has dipped her toe back into the Southern Living springs and has come back unharmed. In fact, she says that, except for the binding which used to be stapled and is now glued, our old Southern Living is back. She's happy. And I totally trust her Southern judgement because she is a true Southern belle.

Well, thanks to the bloggy world, Robin, who heard it from Kristen, who heard it from Sophie, let me in on an amazing deal of the century. If you, like me, had given up on Southern Living, you can dip your toe back into the Southern Living springs for . . . get this . . . only $5. Yep. Five bucks.

Five bucks. Five bucks. Five bucks.

For an entire year of Southern Living.

I signed up. You might want to too. You can click right here to be directed to the Amazon link that will give you this deal. But hurry. Offer ends on Saturday.
