When I was 16, magazines were a gateway to a bigger world of creative people and cultural trends, but as the years pass, and your own creative place in the world grows, the same magazines start to seem more and more small-minded and repetitive. They're no longer as precious to receive, and therefore not something I'd pay as much money for, as I once did.

So the economic downturn hasn't affected my spending on stuff like magazines, it's more personal than that.

Hmmm...well the most Ive paid is 17$ for Vogue Italia. But hearing about how some people pay 23 for V is insane because here its only 6$

Is Self-Service and Purple available in your area?

SS, Purple are $30 each; Estilo is about $25. All 3 come wrapped, so I the pile never move. For months I see the same 4 or 5 copies at the bookstore. In this economy, I don't know that many people who would buy an international magazine (without name recognition) for $30.

The magazines in Belgium are so cheap! The most expensive I've seen costed less than $6. (€4.50)

I'm so glad I don't have to pay $30 for a magazine. That's insane!

No, the most expensive here in Brazil is Self Service, R$129,90 = U$52,00 ... and Pipoca, do you live in Rio ? Because here Numéro costs the same as Vogue Paris !
