Where to find Cheap Magazines

Thursday, December 6, 2012

In countries such as the UK, United States of America or Australia. magazines are relatively affordable as compared to the ones in Malaysia. Sometimes you might even come across good magazines with interesting topics and stories. We have imported magazines here in Malaysia as well, unfortunately for us Malaysians, the exchange rates affects the price of the magazine; too expensive for us to enjoy its content.

Personally, I enjoy rare finds, and sometimes, when I come across unique ones like crafty magazines from the UK priced at RM10 and below. I’m sure that there are some of you who are good in digging up good and cheap finds, but for those who don’t, allow me to guide you.

Magazine shops 

It is usually located in shopping malls, i.e Sunway Pyramid next to the post office or First Subang next to Sushi King. Look for their bin filled with dirt cheap mags.


BookXcess is in Amcorp Mall. Located in the highest floor, BookXcess has an undeniable amount of good books at slashed prices. You will be able to find quite a number of magazines at the magazine section on your right at the entrance. I hope you will enjoy some of the rarest magazines and some limited edition ones.


On-the-go and set up in places like Subang 3K inn, Subang Avenue or in Puchong, etc. You can visit their website and give them your details to get updates on their whereabouts. The next time they are in town near you, you will be informed. And don’t be discouraged by their name; they may focus a lot on books, but they do have quite a unique range of thrifty magazines too.

Other Secondhand bookshops 

Honestly, I have yet to discover other thrifty bookstores around Klang Valley; I would definitely want to and would share with you if I do come across one. But as for now, I would suggest Amcorp Mall as it is the best place to look for thrift mags.

Tip: Ideas for craft projects

You might wonder, why should you look for cheap magazines when you can purchase new ones at the bookstore? Considering if you are someone who enjoys occasional paper craft projects with kids or perhaps collaging and scrapbooking, try getting some cheap outdated magazines instead. Not only you are saving cost, but you are also kinder to the environment, and putting paper to good use.
