I try to put lots of things in my wishlist that are under the $10 minimum. It's hard to shop for someone when everything they ask for is way over the minimum. I usually spend a minimum of $25 but feel uncomfortable when someone only asks for things that are $20,30, or more. This is only my opinion...one time, I added some recent magazines to the new items I was sending. I knew the magazines were "used" by me. I didn't want the recipient to think the items were part of the swap but as long as I was paying for a flat rate package, I put them in. Perhaps on the August swap, a question about magazines could be added. Something like... Do you subscribe to any craft magazines? Would you like to receive any that are fairly new? Just an idea. Pam does such a superior job of updating the survey and asking such pertinent questions.
