Whenever we see something we want to buy, I add it to our wish list. Not an imaginary list, but an actual list we use to remember gift ideas. It’s been such a helpful tool when someone asks about gift suggestions for our family.
For the last year or so I’ve been using Wishpot to keep track of all our gift ideas. It’s free, and you can add items to your wish list from any source whether it’s Amazon, Etsy, or any other store.
Wishpot makes it easy to share your wish list with someone else. (Here is our family’s wish list if you want to see it.) It’s also good for baby or wedding gift registries so you wouldn’t need to be limited to one store. That is so helpful for me because as time goes by, I want fewer things from usual department stores.
One more nice thing about a wish list is it gives you time to think about something before you buy it. A few days after I add something to the wish list, I can consider it again and decide if it was an impulsive addition or if I still really want it.
