A few years ago, many women realized they were stressed out, carrying too many responsibilities, and working too hard both at work and at home. These women decided to make their lives simpler. Real Simple magazine focuses on the simple lifestyle movement. With articles about easier ways to care for your home, your family, and yourself, its goal is to make your life smoother and stress-free while introducing you to the best ideas and products.

Real Simple magazine’s philosophy of simplicity is reflected in its layout style. Clean, uncluttered pages allow you to focus on articles and ideas. You’ll find articles about reducing stress, simple makeup and hair techniques that look fantastic, easy recipes, organization ideas, uncluttered d├ęcor, and ways to remove burdens from your life while retaining all its fullness. Pets, kids, cooking-no matter what you need to simplify, you will find it addressed in Real Simple.

Buying guides are a common part of this magazine, covering products in all price ranges. Real Simple magazine offers tips on spending your money in smarter ways and sometimes road-tests popular new devices to see how well they really work. Real Simple also includes issues on holiday entertaining and other special events like weddings, maintaining its simplification philosophy throughout.

In essence, content, and style, Real Simple magazine is the Zen of periodicals, seeking out different ways to help you calm down your crazy life. If you need some lifestyle simplification, it might be the right magazine for you.

    I really like Real Simple.I have been getting it since it came out. BUT, now that i’ve gotten into my 70’s, I find that it has little to offer me. The recipes sound good but i cannot eat most of the ingredients that they are made from.I have to do a lot of switching ingredients and then it is not that dish ay more. The clothes are for working women as are so many other things in the magazine.
    It is a heavy magazine so i cannot carry it with me when i go out to a place where i read while i wait or on public transportation.
    . I have only read 1 copy of Real Simple cover to cover in all the years I have been getting it. So I am forced to give them away because one can only save just so much. I am not a hoarder. But ENJOY anyway, especially if you are a young woman.

    So disappointed with my new subscription. I flipped through the whole thing in about 15 minutes. It’s almost all adds, with a few decent recipes and a short story thrown in. What a waste.

    I like REAL SIMPLE, had subscribed before, but when I subscribed via a “sounds too good to be true” promotional last year (Real Simple
    Sold by: Synapse Services, Inc. $5.00 Condition: New), it WAS. I have NEVER received one magazine. Buyer and Meredith Corporation, beware.

    This magazine is about 80% advertising with very little actual articles. Very disappointed

    I actually love this magazine. The print version is done well and there are always articles that I read and keep. I am rating this three star based on extraordinarily poor customer service. I wanted to take the digital version with me on vacation, but for some reason could no longer access my library or download copies. This is recent, as in past, I have always been able to do so. I emailed RS for assistance. A week passed with no response. I followed up and received a response that they needed additional info as they could not locate my account. I provided the info they requested. No response. A week passed and I followed up. Two days later I received an email that they needed the same info I had already sent as they couldn’t find my account. I sent it again. A week passed. No response. I followed up with a third request. No response. Today I follow up with a fourth request, but have little hope that RS has any interest in helping me with this issue. This was very disappointing. If RS does not wish to provide customer service, they should stop implying that that they do.

    I’ve looked Real Simple since it came out. The digital version was identical until recently. Now the digital version represents only a sample of the articles (and all the ads) isolated from the rest of the magazine. You barely get any content. I still like the print version even though lugging it around is inconvenient. I’m cancelling the digital version.

    I’ve had an issue with this ever since I ordered it. Real simple keeps contacting me telling me I owe them more money for this subscription that I already paid for.

    Real Simple is another of my eye candy magazines that I enjoy looking at and not having to actually think. Just enjoyable and Amazon makes it easy to keep track of my subscriptions so I can just toss those annoying renewals that seem to start as soon as the first issue of any magazine arrives. I like reading online, but also enjoy hard cover mags.
