I have several big dreams that I've shared previously on this blog. For example, paying off our mortgage, becoming debt free and traveling to France. But I have a much less important wishlist. You know, those little items that would brighten up your day but are not pressing you to get a second job or sell all your valuables to attain them. Amazon.com has a service where I can keep all the little gems I come across in one handy dandy list.
I recommend having an updated wishlist for gift giving holidays and birthdays. It helps your loved ones by letting them know what you'd actually like to receive and it helps you by guaranteeing you'll genuinely be happy when opening your gift. Plus it is easy to update once you receive something on your list you can log back on and delete the item so you won't get it again at a later date. My husband and I have been keeping a wishlist for a few years now and have been quite pleased with the results ;)
