What if I have limited space for gifts?
Request that presents be sent to loved ones with large basements. More important, register only for things you adore and want to incorporate into your life right away. Know, however, that most companies maintain registries for up to two years after the last logged activity, so friends and family may rely on it for future gifts, which may keep showing up at your chosen location.
Another option that requires no space: registering for donations (to those in need, not for your own house fund). Check out idofoundation.org, which helps you register for donations to charities such as UNICEF and the Sierra Club. At justgive.org, you can register for global charities or ones closer to home.
