I think many would ahve a hard time not looking, as long as you don’t look everyday or get disappointed at whats left unbought.

Dude, I have a hard time not looking!  My mom told me it was ok to look.  She said the fun comes from finding out who got you what, not what you got!

Do ittt. Just don’t get disappointed by the unpurchased items. Most people but gifts last minute and registries can take a few days to update. I got things at my shower and 3 days later the registry reflected it.

I don’t look though there are times that I want to.  I like surprises.

I cheated regularly and SO fully supported me in this effort. As soon as I saw something was completed, I immediately went into the Thank You Manager to see who it was. I remember being really “annoyed” when peope opted out bc then I actually had to wait until the box arrived to know. We were never disappointed by anyone’s gifts. On the contrary, we were shocked by some of the people’s generosity!

FWIW, I also hate surprises with a passion so I probably wouldn’t register at a store without a Thank You Manager.

I looked all the time, I rationalized it by saying Macy’s always changes their stock and I had to replace a few items when they were no longer available, bur really I just wanted to look and see!

I couldn’t stand not to look!  I justified it by saying “This way, when I open it I will be able to be extra excited and call it by name!”  “OH!  Our Charleston centerpiece bowl!”

I plan to look but it is probably better to just get a surprise

I think if it were cheating it wouldn’t be set up so you could look. Just my opinion…….our justification. lol.
