GreedyMe to help with present lists

Nov 18, 2005

A new Web site called GreedyMe.com has been launched that allows users to create online wish lists.

The site lets those wishing to cash in during birthdays and the holiday season share their lists with family and friends.

"Users seem to love it," said Sam Sanders, the site's creator. "Each one signs up, tells two friends, and so on."

According to Sanders, while many online stores have their own wish lists, GreedyMe.com provides a central place to store items from any Web site. It also supports automatically importing wish lists from the largest online retailer, Amazon.com.

"It's a part-time operation," said Sanders of creating and running the new site. "I'm just trying to make people's lives a little easier. The holiday season is hectic enough as it is."
