- Click Update this list’s profile.

Adding items to your Amazon.com Wish List
Click Add to Wish List under the Buy box on the right-hand side of any item’s product detail page.

I love this idea! My sons’ teachers set one up for their classroom supply “wishlist”, this year. It was the first time I’ve ever seen a teacher do this. Usually, they hand us a piece of paper with their lists, at the open house. The Amazon list gave them more flexibility to change throughout the year, adding or deleting items, as needed. It made it easy for me to price check the items before purchasing.
What a fantastic idea for teachers. I did not think of this application for an Amazon wish list but it is perfect. My daughter is a teacher. I’m going to share it with her as well as my readers. Thanks Cindy!
