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 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.)

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'm wishing for:

  • Coke codes
  • coupons for :  glucose meters (One Touch, Breeze 2, Contour, Freestyle, etc.)  - I purchase them using the coupons and donate them to our local health clinic.
  • Senseo or Folgers decaf coffee pods - none of my local stores carry the decaf pods
  • new items for our local homeless shelter - knit hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, children's pajamas, socks, travel size toiletry items - so many families and it's hard to keep the shelves stocked

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

Here I am in a new decade... with the same old wishes!  Always love to get-

        Any sheep stuff - figurines, stuffed ones, stickers, note cards, books,anything you see with sheep on it.

        Ditto Saint Bernard items.   I am owned, protected and  dearly loved by a big ole guy named Bear. Finding anything with Saint Bernards on it is difficult, so think of me if you happen upon something.

        Stationery - I will take any off your hands.  I write to people all over the world and it will get used. Email is great, but snail mail is the best!

        Bath stuff - powder, bubble bath, bath salts, love any and all.

Happy New Year to all my RAOKing buddies!

Still looking for an official copy of Quicken 2006 or newer with install code if someone has one they have upgraded and can afford to part with their older version.

Also could really use hand and foot lotion my skin is horribly dry this winter and I am going through lotion like crazy.

Any fabric that you don't need.  I make cancer hats.  My neighbor has had cancer three times, that's what got me started on this.  Thankfully she keeps pulling through and hats for her and others is a nice way to help.  Thanks so much!!!

Okay, I'm not sure these are even popular anymore but my 6 yr old has just learned about Pokemon & LOVES it! So any old Pokemon cards would be loved by my son.  I know NOTHING about Pokemon, he's my oldest so I'm learning along w/ him, so really anything Pokemon would be great.

Happy New Year everyone!

My #1 wish: I always appreciate grocery coupons.

My older son is redecorating his bedroom in a train theme.  If you have any railroad paraphernalia, old train pictures, etc., we would really appreciate them!

My younger son's room is a jungle theme.  Anything that would go with this theme is always appreciated.
