Bright Idea- Wish Lists

September 27, 2011

Written by Contributing Writer, Sarah Farthing

Like many moms I know, I am perpetually recommending to my children, “Add it to your list!” when they fall in love with a toy they just have to have at the store. The trouble is, we don’t ever actually write down this ‘Someday List’ as our family calls it. They haven’t caught on yet, but I know it’s only a matter of time, which is why I was thrilled when I read this idea!


It’s simple: take a picture of your child with the toy in the store. ¬†They have piece of mind that an actual list is forming and you can look back at the pictures for birthday and holiday gift ideas! Win-Win!



Today’s Bright Idea came from Susan, mom of Ben (5), Nick (5), Elaine (4) and Alida (4), of Missouri City, Texas. (And yes, that’s two sets of twins!)

    I totally do this – for everyone in our family! Then, when I get asked for ideas, I just open up the photos on my phone. So easy, and I always have it with me!
