Ever notice when someone is expecting a child or marriage is on the horizon there is a gift registry? This isn’t one of them and is one of them all at the same time…well, not in the sense that I want to create a list of items I really, really want and then expect all my loved ones to cough up the goodies. Nope. This is about a wishlist for my next nest and my hopes for it. I’m going to create a page, a place where I can post what I find and add as I go along in this odd transitional time. There will be some ground rules, things aren’t going to be as they were when I first stepped out on my own.
1. I will do everything I can to not buy new. There may be some things that are better purchased new, but I’m going to really contemplate those.
2. I would like to avoid appliances whenever possible. Whisks over an electric mixer or coffee press instead of a coffee maker, that sort of thing.
3. I shall keep it as simple as possible. There’s just no need for me to have a tortilla maker or a microwave or cake pop maker.
4. I want to buy American as much as possible.
