Default Going Down My Wish List

Back at ppccoach, where I started learning affiliate marketing a few years ago, the big coach had everyone make a wishlist of gifts they'd buy themselves as they hit milestones as an affiliate...it was a way to make the whole thing seem less like work and more like a game. I thought I'd try that now that I'm diving back into affiliate marketing

I'm making an Amazon Wish List and adding stuff as I think of it.

Amazon.com

First, I promised to get myself a pair of new inline skates once I had my first stable campaign of at least $50/day. I chose the perfect skates for the kind of all-terrain skating I'd been fantasizing about. Well, I hit that mark pretty quickly, but the skates were out of stock everywhere and Rollerblade won't have them again for two more months. In the meantime, I bought myself the next pair of skates down in the same category. But I'm hoping by October I'll be doing so well I can just buy the skates I wanted originally.

Right now, what I'd like to get once I hit a stable $200/day: high-end noise cancelling earbuds. Also, this super-powerful $500 Vitamix blender, which will take just about anything, rocks even, and turn it into soup. I'm trying to eat more vegetables but I don't like to cook, and this thing always seemed cool except it was so expensive.

My list is a little boring right now so it's a work in progress. What do you guys have on your Wish Lists?
breakdance and integral like this.

Joel, why a blender? Reminds me of one of my favorite songs:

That blender looks really neat. Soup is honestly one of the best and most delicious way to eat lots of vegetables and is very easy for those who don't like to cook (I don't like it either).

I presently have two things on my wish list:

This and also some kind of handgun (haven't yet decided what kind). Good luck! I hope you're able to get your skates, fancy ear buds, and blender soon.

Unless you happen to be a target at the shooting range or a home invader, you have nothing to worry about.

Just saw that people had replied to this.

@Jinx, kind of scared by your wish item till I saw "Disclamer: this is not a working firearm!" I was wondering how you'd keep it going off every time you shook hands. That is a badass piece of jewelry!

Why a blender? It's not just a blender, it's practically its own cook. I was living for a while in South America, where everyone who can afford to either has someone who cooks/cleans for them or just eats out (the low salaries paid average people make it possible). There's no way I'm going to have a personal cook in the US, and eating out here is usually unhealthy, so this is the next best thing...

Thanks Joel, I thought it looked badass too. I know there are working pistol rings in existence, but I'd also be concerned about the safety of actually wearing one. Maybe wearing it on your left hand would at least mitigate the shaking hands situation.

Where in South America did you live? I visited earlier this year, and that trip also gave me some perspective regarding healthy eating habits, and made me want to eat out less in the United States, due to the widespread practice here of restaurants substituting unhealthy amounts of salts, starches, transfats, etc in place of real ingredients to save money. I figure if I start cooking some easy recipes myself, I'll have more control over getting the proper nutrients. I hope you're able to get your blender soon and make some healthy meals with it!

Peru.

Yeah, it's amazing how much restaurants in the US skimp on the vegetables. Of course, the price difference between vegetables and grain-based products and processed foods is enormous in the US, so restaurants try to cut down on how many they use, and most customers don't care.

In Peru, fruits and vegetables are so much cheaper. A piece of fruit actually costs less than a small bag of chips and not the other way around, which has an effect on people's eating habits.
