Wishlistr

In the effort to free myself from “free” services, I’ve started to consolidate and delete some of the things I’ve been using around the internet. The most recent one is Wishlistr, I used it to provide a wishlist of items to family. I’ve since moved my wishlist to a page hosted here via Micro.blog, which is a much nicer option for people to follow links.

Wishlistr, since it is a “free” service, injects ads in the urls you save. So when someone clicks the link to check out the item you’ve saved, they get fed to an ad server before redirecting to the url they actually should be going to.
