First:  Remember:  this is the place to wish.  We all have wishes.  If you feel someone has asked for something too large, expensive or extravagant,   just ignore.  Please be kind.  Don't make someone feel badlyNone of us know someone else's circumstances, unless we ask...........................For those of us asking, let's remember this  is Not a Christmas shopping list.  It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family.

Here, you list a few things you like/collect/can use.  Obviously,  we all like certain things like  credits, wish-list books, etc. This is NOT for that kind of thing.   This is for  things others might have around the house that you can use (for instance if you collect postcards, bookmarks, Coke codes, or if there's a candy you love you can't find in your area, etc).  **   Please remember that books, by title or genre, should not be requested in this forum(I Wish thread).  There may be other places for that.  If someone sends you a book, please receive it and thank the member sending it.

Please limit your list to about 10 items (Remember,  you can edit your list), and if someone PMs you for your address, please acknowledge and thank them when you receive whatever they send you.  There is a separate thank you thread so we can  keep this one clean and easy to read.   It can get jumbled and hard to read with extra clutter so if we can do our best to keep it to our requests and the rare bump, that would be awesome :) ;) It's important to thank everyone who send something either by PM and or the thank you thread.

It's always good to check the RAOK thread before you post your wishes - someone may already have what you are looking for. (For those of you looking for them, coupons are offered on the RAOK  on a regular basis.)   There is now a separate coupon thread within the RAOK forum, if you wish to trade there.

If you post wishes, try to grant at least one wish yourself, so this place is not considered a "gimme" group,  where people post but don't send out.  PBS members can become good friends, don't abuse, please!

If you see a wish you are able to grant, just PM the poster and ask for their name and address - that's it, simple and easy and a lot of fun!

Any questions, please feel free to PM me, I will try to help.

I can't believe it's August already, almost time to get my classroom ready again for another year.

I collect Box Tops, Campbell Labels, Coke Rewards and Tyson A+ Labels for my school. For my Science classroom, I am looking for seed packages of any flowers, plants or herbs.

Thanks as always for you support!

I am looking for any journals you might not be using.  I am starting to write down family stories, stories my dad who passed told me so my kids can have them and would like to put them in journals. 

Also I collect bookmarks and would be willing to trade some with others.

Well first most a job, since I have been out of work for 2 years and the economy here in Florida is not looking any better.

But other than that the things that keep me going:

1. Credits to use up on here, visiting this site is one of the highpoints of my week.

2. Any books on writing, editing, publishing, fiction, etc.I have returned to college after 10 years to earn my BA in English Lit.

3. A mystery thriller or classic literature book on cd - I have never done a book by cd or tape and would like to see how I like that.

4. Empty ink cartridges.

Thanks for looking....
