Shoot, if anything it will motivate people to hurry up and shop for you for fear everything will get snatched up off your registry!  Plus, they won’t know it was you who bought it! 🙂

My husband had put a power tool on the registry that he mentioned would have been useful for some work that he was doing in our basement (insulating the walls). His birthday was coming up, so I bought it off the registry for him.

There are some things that we seriously need (like pot holders and a veggie peeler) that are currently on our registry. I don’t know if I can wait 8 more months for those things, so I might go ahead and buy them. But I will probably get them from Home Goods or somewhere cheap and then just take the other items off the registry. Although a $5 veggie peeler is on a totally different level than a $400 comforter.

I think you did the right thing by buying the comforter. Are you going to use it right away or wait until after the wedding?

if it’s that much on sale there’s a good chance it might be gone soon, so if you’re attached to it, i think it was smart to go ahead and get it. i have a million things i’d like to have right now, like everything in the kitchen needed for cooking and baking, but i really don’t want to spend the money so i’m just improvising or borrowing stuff for now.

I think that’s a smart move. For me, setting up a registry made me want things on it so much more quickly! I bought a few things off the registry before they could be gifted to me. Like artbee says, store stock can change so chances are if you want it, it’s best you got it yourself.

I bought a toaster with the incentive money we got after registering – it made me soooo happy I really needed a new one

That’s too funny.  Maybe that will motivate other folks to buy things from the registry, too.  I didn’t buy anything until after the wedding, but we bought most of the stuff that was left over.

With something that is ‘such a deal’ like that, a $400 item for $150? Definitely go for it. I think the lower priced items, I’d leave alone but the higher ticket items like that… or an expensive KitchenAid mixer, go ahead and buy it.
