"You know how you go into a store, planning to buy a pair of jeans you need, and then walk out with a bracelet, some sandals, and a cocktail dress instead? (Happens to me all the time.) Well, registering is kind of like that too," Kerr says.
"It can be overwhelming to realize you can register for literally everything in the world, and sometimes that leads to questionable decisions. I mean, it’s great that you want that movie-theater-quality popcorn maker, but if you don’t really eat popcorn very often, and don’t have the storage space for it, maybe it’s not the best choice? Just a thought. Instead: make a plan and stick to it," she recommends.
