Amazon & Pinterest

Does anyone else LOVE Amazon's Wish List?

Okay maybe it's just me, but I cannot stop playing on that thing.  Basically it's like a wedding registry where you link things that you want, except it's for... life.  Except right now I just use it for {me} - not actually hoping I'll get any of those things as gifts.  Nobody knows about it.  For me it's like a fantasy registry where I can put anything I've ever thought about wanting or dreamt about.  Much of the stuff I put on there I don't really want and probably 90% of it I don't need.   What do I have on my fantasy registry?
 

I've tried to highlight the ridiculous things I've got on my fantasy wish list.

Yes these are the ridiculous things on my wish list - you can see I live dangerously... NOT.  I'm actually pretty boring.  The idea of long ice cream spoons, yet another lunch bag or a $300 starburst mirror is my idea of fun.  I mean who doesn't need a come in/go away (turn your head upside down to check it out) door mat or a muffin top baking tray?  Other wishes not shown: books, more kitchen gadgets, serving trays, clothes, xantham gum, make-up, & pillows.  I'm sure anyone else would probably have way cooler things than this.

Since Amazon  has pretty much everything in life you'll probably be able to add whatever you want to your wish list.  But if not - no worries!  Amazon now has a universal wish list button.  You install it on your browser then you can add any product from any website to your wish list.  I've got stuff from Banana Republic, Crate and Barrel and Etsy on mine.

In many ways it's very similar to Pinterest.  You pin things that you like as a inspiration board for yourself.  It helps you remember cool things and organizes them.  Like Amazon's wish list, you can share everything so others can re-pin your stuff (or buy you gifts).  It's a helpful way of keeping track of stuff online - so you can access it anywhere.  So long are the days of tacking notes on bulletin boards or hoarding lost jpegs on our desktop.  If you haven't checked out Pinterest get on it!  It's awesome! 

If you need an invite (and you're a follower and cool reader) - let me know.  I'll hook you up.  No waiting 2 weeks for you! *** drop me an email: oursemiorganiclife [at] gmail . com with your email and I'll send ya an invite! ***


What would be on your fantasy registry?
