I started to get the magazine originally after purchasing a Better Homes and Garden furniture piece that came with a free 1 year subscription. Although it is decently priced, I never renewed the subscription. However, I did get another free 1 year digital subscription through a magazine rewards website. Thus if you are willing to take the time and look around online, there are ways to get free copies; but the price of the magazine is typically around $5.
Each issue offers inspiring ways to make your home more comfortable, as well as ways to stay healthy and happy. It covers a multitude of topics from helpful recipes and cooking tips to useful advice on a variety of common topics (ex. organizing around the home, vacation tips, affordable meal options), as well as various other ways to help make life a little easier in your household.
The only downfall I have for the magazine the amount of advertisements. I understand ads are needed to publish the magazine. But it seems like each issues tends to get more and more advertisements.
Overall, I recommend Better Homes and Gardens magazine to those with a family focus. It has plenty of helpful information and is very reasonable priced (often free online). Plus you can find it in both paper and digital form.
