I'd like to introduce you to a new site I found:
Now, I'm not crazy about the name. If it's supposed to imply 'wish spot' then they should've just thrown in the extra 's' -- without it it feels like Wish Pot. Maybe it's supposed to be a pot for storing wishes? Instead it reminds me of wishing for pot. Anyway, I digress.
Wishpot is sort of like a shopping cart or wish list for the whole internet. See something you want, add it to one of your Wishpot lists via a super-convenient toolbar button. It stores the item, website, price and other important info.
You can create lists that are public (either viewable by everyone or only your Wishpot friends) or private. I've started a public wish list for myself, a private list of gift ideas for others and a private list of decor ideas for the house.
You can designate a priority for each item: thinking about it, wouldn't mind having it, want it, really really want it, and I neeeeed it!
I don't think this will replace my traditional Christmas list, but it's a nice way to gather those things online that make me think "ohhhh, I'd like to have that."
So check out wishpot, get your list going, and add me as a friend.
If not, you're getting fruitcake for Christmas.
