60 Day Greener Downtime Challenge + FREE Trial!

Yes! You read that right – but I bet you are asking yourself “what downtime”? Well, if you are like me, you struggle to find downtime, but I have found a way to sneak it into my busy life!

So, picture this…….one day after school, the kids come home, have their typical snack and then everyone gets ready for their various activities. My son does Karate and my daughter is in musical theatre. We scheduled them so that I wasn’t going to be criss-crossing town on the same day for both children, BUT every once in a while things work out that way.

Last week, my son was sick on his regular Karate day, so he was going to take a makeup class on the same day that my daughter has her musical theatre classes. So, off we went on a cross-town adventure, dropping off, driving, dropping off, driving, picking up, driving, picking up driving with a small bit of downtime in between.

During that downtime, I was sitting in the car with nothing to do other than work (which I do enjoy), when it occurred to me that it would be a perfect time to take a few minutes and use Next Issue to catch up on some magazine reading.

    Although I do love my paper magazines, particularly ones with recipes that I tear out, I am intrigued by the prospect of having my magazines available online for portability. I must try this.

  2. Elva Roberts says:

    I think this is a wonderful idea for Moms who are also acting as chauffers for their children several days a week.
    I think it is a great way to catch up on your magazines and learn new crafts, recipes.
    Thank you for telling us about it.

    I did like this app but I have an old iPad and found it used up most of the space and I had to delete the app so I could do an update!

    I don’t remember the last time I had “downtime”… LOL! Next Issue is definitely something I could use (especially when I travel); I like to normally read informational/news magazines like MacLeans, Time, National Geographic, etc.
