did you know that when you do a registry you can return everything for cash? I just asked crate and barrel and thats what they told me your registry acts as a receipt and you can return it all for $$$$
We have everything we need already so in the invitation we will be sending a card that has an account number. People can just transfer or deposit money into there or else they can write a check to us. But the account will be a "House Fund" So we are collecting money for a downpayment for a home.
Its like having a honeymoon fund but for a house.
Same issue (teeny apt) also did a honeymoon registry through honeyfund.com. Its a little different b/c I got to put a little note up explaining whay we are having it, and our guests totally understood that there is no point giving us stuff we dont have space for. I didn't want my guests to be charged an extra fee to give us money, so I liked this site b/c we can describe what we are planning and also make a "gift certificate" option and they print out a little sheet that they include with their check to bring/send with their own message typed up. Also for those not comfortable with it we have a small Target registry
People like it so far!
