@bella731:  LOL!!! Yep!!! =)

I feel really supported somehow. And it’s real!! I mean, I’ll be using those items as a married woman!

My grandmother just bought our Kitchen-Aid and my mom bought this really nice beverage dispenser!! Yippee!!

@bella731:  I’ve wanted one since I was a kid. Macy’s had a sale this weekend that gave 40 percent off all mixers. She got $200 off! She has said before she would get it but I’m so glad I was able to see that sale and call and tell her.

I want a lot on my registry too…things we really need. Like flatware. lol And drinking glasses.

Yes! It was one of my favorite things during the weeks leading up to the wedding.. Not that I am all gift grabby but I truly appreciate each thing a person purchased and was so excited to start our lives together with the new stuff.. Now, sadly, all our stuff is packed into storage.. We know our apt is temporary and are waiting to find job placement before we move and didn’t want to unpack it all for just a few months.. But hopefully by August, we’ll be in a new place and FINALLY use all our stuff 🙂 It’ll be like getting it all over again!!

I check the registry every once and awhile and when something I really want is purchased, I excitedly tell FI.  Then he yells at me for looking!

@bella731:  Are you registered at Macy’s? If so, they have a ton of discounts. Did you know that if someone buys something off your registry online, they can get 20 off a 50 purchase? They also have insane sales. I pay attention when the ads come on TV and check the website often for sales. We also get coupons in the mail!

 

If you can, get their credit card. We have reaped so many benefits. When I met FI I thought dept store cc’s were pointless but he has a Macy’s and it’s great. Sometimes we get discounts for just using the card. And then on our registry, anytime someone buys anything off our registry, we get points. About 90 days after our wedding Macy’s gives you gift card of all those points and you can use it for whatever you want.

Lastly, for some reason online is cheaper than the stores. Sometimes by $20. So if there is something you want, check online first and then call the store to see the price.

@bella731:  It’s me again! LOL. Just this morning I was re-doing some registry parts and I noticed someone up and bought one of our more expensive items. I was floored. And we have no idea who this could be. As I told you, my mom and grandmother bought some things but I know those! Anyway…just wanted to share my excitement. =) I knew you would get it! Hahah

I actually get really excited when I log into my registry and see that NOTHING has been purchased!! Lol 

I didn’t really want to register, but did because I thought I was supposed to, but of course I’m one of the millions who would obviously prefer cash.. So when I look at my registry and nothing has been purchased from it (I didn’t have traditional showers, so no gifts were given then), it actually makes me happier.

@bella731:  Honestly the only thing I really NEED from my registry are new sheets, but I can buy them myself, you know? I don’t really need anything (including money), I guess that’s why I’m not really excited about the whole registry thing. My FI and I would like to buy a new bedroom suite, so any money we do get (we don’t expect anything, but I know our family, adn we will get something) we are going to put towards that.. And THAT makes me excited! 

Also, FI and I have been together 8+ years and we are on our second home. We have all the stuff we really need, except the bedroom suite! Lol
