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!

1. Wishing for used/cancelled stamps. I wish to add to my meager collection. (Thanks for those who have contributed all ready.)
2. Pokemon cards in quality condition. I'm collecting these for my cousin's sweet boy so please no ratty tatty ones!
3. Coke Rewards. I'm addicted to Pogo. Enough said.
4. Keys. Got some keys laying around the house and you have no idea what they go to? I will totally and completely accept any wayward keys.
5. Plastic Canvas.  I make piggy banks from empty baby formula cans, but the price for sheets are outrageous here, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

As always, please and thank you very much.

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 - hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, pajamas, socks, underwear - so many families and it's hard to keep the shelves stocked

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!
