It's only free if

it didn't cost anything. I'm often amazed by people who think they have got a freebie when actually it's cost a lot of money. Magazines are a case in point, ok so you have a free gift, but you will have paid £3 or £4 for your free gift, magazine subscriptions are even worse.

I seem to remember the original pattern was published in Woman's Weekly about 40 years ago.

Don't forget the 'free' gift with the magazine probably costs postage as well.

My hubby is a sucker for these. He recently bought six boxes of star wars theme cereal because they had a special spoon free. One box cost more than double our usual cereals. I was livid.

Nearer £4 to £5 nowadays. magazines are a rip-off when most are three-quarters ads
