We are registering today, and we have basically NOTHING between the two of us. (haha, we’re both in college!) What items should I not forget? I am trying to plan ahead so we don’t miss anything! I am so excited!

@FutureMrsAnders: Well if you’re starting out, the lists at the store that they give you are pretty good. I wouldn’t register for fine china if you’re registering for stuff to fill your house though… but thats my personal opinion. Have fun!!!

One thing- make sure most of your picks are available in the store.
I noticed a lot of couples adding things that are only available online…and most people wait until the last minute to buy gifts.

I think you’ll be fine with the lists from the store… I hope you enjoyed yourselves!
Some things that you may want to add, if you don’t have them, are more pedestrian, but useful, like a vacuum cleaner and a good kitchen garbage can. If you have to upgrade to a larger bed, make sure to ask for nice bedding!
Given that you need “everything” I would prioritize a bit, too, so you have some items you can add later, but maybe keep the list a tad shorter in the beginning. ie – if you really do need bedding, put that on there for now and leave off the foreman grill or blender (unless, of course, you are a smoothie for breakfast and indoor griller for dinner every day!).

For sure a nice set of pans. You guys may have some now, but a full set of great quality is something I’m so looking forward to. Right now ours have food that stick and they are all mismatched.
Also, love the suggestion on a vacuum.
A few more ideas: nice pillows (for sleeping), bedding, CROCKPOT (aka, lifesaver), and towels. I feel like you can never have too many towels as they get gross somewhat quickly.
Good luck and have fun!!
