I ordered this because I wanted a magazine that was all around, something like Martha Stewart, but not too high browed and undo-able. However, I've gotten 2 magazines already and I feel that it's kinda worthless. I don't get enough recipes. I don't get enough relevant articles. I think the magazine's articles are too general and I just don't like the articles too much. I would say that I got what I paid for - basically nothing.

There is nothing in the least stimulating for the mind or creativity here. I found most of what was in this very cliched. It seems the plan is the same every month - the "follow the ADA food pyramid," "put your food on a saucer to think it is substantial," "get more exercise," "I survived cancer," and so forth. It is half "positive thinking," but otherwise a denial that anyone has a mind, heart, or soul. The feature articles are very poor quality, such as the Elizabeth Post quasi-etiquette, wherein one may not share news of an event with friends without saying "no gifts please," and friends are looking for others to meddle in their lives (what is polite about having a friend who wonders if her dress fits well being told to go to a gym class?)
The other reviewer who said "not enough" is quite right.

I used to read this magazine in my high school library when I used to cut class and take 5 hour naps there. The magazine was full of really cool recipes, advice and a lot more other stuff that I liked so much, I used to secretly tear out and take home. Their website, I'll admit is pretty helpful too and well organized. The problem is this magazine NOW. I got this subscription from Rite Aid since I had reward points to spend. I looked through the first issue I received and I was shocked that there were so many advertisements to the point where I thought I got a water-down version since I got it for free. It was actually the real deal. I gave the second issue a chance, but it was nothing but ads. No articles were interesting at all (if you actually find any). When I got the third and fourth, I just open the magazine once and flip through a few pages very quickly and then throw it out. Save your money.. it's not even worth your time. I can't wait for my subscription to end because I feel like this magazine is basically junk mail.

This is the wife of the person who ordered this subscription--it was ordered for me. I am really disappointed in this magazine. I don't know when it because part of "good housekeeping" to diet. This magazine has multiple articles and advice and such on losing weight. If I wanted that kind of magazine, I'd have subscribed to a health magazine. I was looking for something more like Martha Stewart or Rachel Ray, with yummy recipes, maybe some crafts and decorating ideas, etc. Instead, it's like any other "woman's" magazine pushing the same tired ideas about getting your body ready for a bikini.

This is not the Good Housekeeping I remember. SPARSE. This mag used to be full of artticles and down to earth advice columns.

Been reading "Good Housekeeping" for years and loving it. Haven't subscribed in awhile. What a change! Way too much advertising and not enough substance! What happened??? But for $5.00, I guess I shouldn't complain??????

started with this mag when i was married 45 plus years ago.... have subscribed on and off and since then..have added... many advertsing pages now..... seems "old" to me. i compared it to other magazines such as "real simple" and i have to say i'd go with the latter... good housekeeping has kept their pricing down, so if this is the issue... go with g.h. if not i'd rather read other magazines !!

I canceled my subscription almost immediately. I couldn't stand having to sift through all the ads to find a tiny bit of semi-useful or interesting content

I didn't care for this magazine at all. I thought it was a cheapo copy of Woman's Day and had less applicable articles in it. The recipes were meh, mostly things that my family would never eat.
