I have a wishlist of some main items i'm saving up for that i'd like to get. at the very top of my list is some new pairs of glasses, as i'm due an eye test soon and really want some new frames (and will need new lenses anyway no doubt!). Also on my wishlist is a new phone, a new computer (maybe not brand new or not the latest but something better than what i have). Clothes wise i need some new bras and also want a new skirt or too, and some new tops for going out ie for meals/to the pub etc in. I also want a new bag to replace mine as it's falling apart. Now i just need to save up real hard to afford all this!!!

I need a new living room set the one I have the springs are broken stains etc. I brought them in 1994, and they have serve me well. I also want to cut the pine trees down thats in my backyard. I am always scared they might fall in a storm. I need some roses for my garden. I need to paint my home. I have white walls, and i hate them. Its a two level so I cannot paint them myself.

I'll never understand why anyone would kill a pine tree.

I am with you on the glasses front. But I need to save up a bit for them here. Perhaps if I keep up with the discussion board I might eventually have enough saved. I cant really think what else I need, but if I do see something I tend to buy it then if the cash allows me otherwise I just wait and even forget about it all together, so I guess I never really needed it in the first place.

One major purchase that I would love to be able to afford would be a DVD recorder and some blank DVD's to go along with it. I have been aching for one of these ever since they first came out. I wouldn't say that I'm currently saving up for one, though. Once upon a time, I bought a CD-R/RW recorder with my own money that is now really out of date, and now all computers come with them.. well, even that is probably going to get phased out now with DVD recorders. So I would just rather wait until the family needs a new computer, figuring that it will come with one.

I'd love to get a DVD player, I have so many DVDs that I could watch if I had one.

My wish list is just things I need. This will be the first summer that I won't be living at work and I don't have any summer clothes, I've been alternating between two pairs of jeans and sweatpants. I would love to get a small tiller for my garden, I need a weedeater because my boyfriend broke ours last year. We really need a new dvd player because our cheap one is about worn out, my son loves to watch his dvd's. Other than that I would get things for the yard, we need a barbecue and trellises and flowers and such. Can't afford any of it so I guess that's why we call it a wish list.

I don't have a written wish list; well, take that back, I have things I want and I feel that is good; Here is mine; 1. Bifocal glasses; one doctor said I needed them; another doctor that is under my insurance said I don't. I plan to get them and then I never have to take them off. 2. A place of my own; I can have a place so long as no vermints(rats,mice etc) are there and work up to a home of my own. 3. a reliable car. the one I have is good but don't trust it out of town. 4. suitable clothes 5. monetary nest egg(working on that) 6.portable dvd player 7. tv in room 8. new furniture I guess that is it for the moment.

My wish list may seen a bit strange. But I really would like to have a new lawn mower and weed eater/edger. The lawn mower we have does not mulch and does not have a bag. So, I am having to take more time to rake it up and mow back over to blow it to the edge of the yard. Then our weed eater/edger...it burns me each time I use it. It is not that old. We bought it only a few years ago. But the engine gets hot and the weight pulls on my arm to the point that I will burn myself trying to handle it. Even though I hated the electric one we had, at least it did not burn me and it didn't take 10 minutes to start it.

Yes, I do have a shopping wishlist. Like you, I would also like to have a new pair of eyeglasses. I had one when I was in college but I am so lazy then to wear them until I lost them. Now that I really feel the need to wear eyeglasses, I don't have any. Second would be Harry Potter books. And also Angels and Demons and Memoirs of a Geisha. I love reading books and it's a shame that I haven't read any of those up to now. Then I'll buy new tops since I badly need those. Next would be A new perfume, a new bottle of Light Blue by D&G. That will be all for now and I'll come back to add other things when I think of more.

I have a wishlist of things I want at www.greedyme.com. You can list items from any shop there, the size, the price, color, etc - put photos, and rate it on importance. It's handy around my b-day when people ask me what I want.

Lets see, on my wishlist is a DVD recorder for my computer, a new pair of jeans (Levi's), and like you, a new pair of eye glasses. A new microwave as mine has had something explode inside! Not much really but the prices start to add up!

On my shopping wishlist is a new finchfeeder. I have a very old yellow, plastic finchfeeder that has faded and some of the perches have fallen off. I want a nice metal one. We get many beautiful yellow finches to our house each year and I so enjoy sitting on the deck drinking my morning coffee watching the finches! Next on my list are some flowering annual plants. I can't wait to plant some gorgeous impatients, dusty miller, and zinnias!

I do go out with a wishlist for shopping but finally end with many things along with the wishlist. It generally happens only when I go out to a shopping area where almost everything is found at a single place. So at times inorder not to be too spend thrift I end up with the ones only I want by going to only to the place where my wishlist alone can be done.

At the top of my wishlist is definently a newer car. The one that I have right now won't last much longer. I also would like some new furniture and definently a new wardrobe. I've lost a lot of weight recently and I don't have anything to wear. Which is a good and bad thing b/c i'm trying to lose more weight so I don't want to buy too many clothes until i get down to a healthier weight. I would also like some accessories to go with my IPOD.

Boy do i have a wishlist. top of my list is a 2 wheeler. Here in India two wheelers are used a lot and my dad refuses to let me have one. He prefers we drive cars. He's says as long as im living under his roof, i have to listen. But hey im getting married soon so my wedding present to myself will be a cute girly two wheeler. Can hardly wait. Others on my list are the Entire "Charmed" series all seasons. Its costs a bomb for me and i dont wanna spend that much so im saving all my online earnings to buy them :D Other than that i dont have much on my wish list. Got pretty much everything that i could need or want.

hello there!!! my husband and I don't have a credit card, so we always have to do the old fashion way---save,when we want somethin. first on my wishlist is a new computer, a desktop coz what we're using now is a laptop and just keeps on overheating coz we use it a lot. Secondly, I really want to get a new sofa, or a lazyboy. Third, I want to get a new fridge, as ours is pretty old, though it still functions well. And last, I want to get an oven, a really nice one!!!It's gonna take us a while before we could buy all these. Hopefully I get them all before the year ends!!!how i wish!

Yeah I have a long long shopping wishlist haha, because I love shopping and I'm very materialistic (i think) At the top of my list is clothes! Yeah, I love to go shopping clothes and shoes. Specially I want Volcom, Matix, Circa, etc... clothes, and Vans, Draven, Mustang shoes. In my wishlist are videogames too, I want the PSP (playstation portable) and the new PS3 (playstation 3) but are very expensive haha. On the other hand... I need a MAC, and a Wacom. Maybe a new television for my bedroom. Oh! And of course, I want a korean doll called Delf El, which I'm in love! It's so cool and beautiful!!!
