Magazine background[edit]

That's Life was established in 1995.[5] The magazine is published on a weekly basis.[2] In addition to real-life stories,[3] the magazine also includes weekly features such as 'Aren't Men Daft', for which readers send in examples of 'daft' behaviour by their male friends and relatives; lifestyle, health and beauty advice; 'tightwad tips' in which readers are invited to share their ideas for money-saving around the home and many other features relevant to a modern woman's lifestyle.

Thats Life Magazine is cited as one of the magazines targeted by the campaign group "Curb The Chat Mags".[6]
