I had started a baby registry rather early in my pregnancy with Liam, I think around 4 months along, even before I knew I was having a boy. I created one early because I had just boughten a plane ticket to go home and spend Christmas with my family and figured while I am home it'd be nice to have a baby shower with everyone. I had hoped to also have one with my Alaskan friends as time drew closer to his birth. I had a wide range of items on my registry, but made sure to tell everyone invited that smaller items are preferred that'll fit in my suitcase since I'd have to haul it all back to Alaska. At the baby shower Liam got tons of clothes, books, and other baby essentials, but many people gave gift cards since those would be easier to pack home. So what do I do now. Very few items were actually purchased on the registry and I loved everything I had picked out for him. I am sure this has happened to others that they had a registry that barely or never got used, but what do you do with it. The reason this came about right now is that I got an email saying that some of the items in my registry are no longer available and then I got a letter in the mail saying that if I would like to buy out the rest of my registry they will take 10% off the entire purchase. I wish I could buy out the registry, I love all of the items I picked out for my little man. I guess what I am wondering about is if I need to call and get the registry cancelled, because I couldn't find a delete registry button on my registry page to do it myself and really I don't want to be the one to delete it, deleting is so final. Will the registry just disappear on its own after a certain amount of time or does it just stay available forever and maybe if I get pregnant again it will still be there waiting to get used. I am just tired of getting coupons and emails for baby stuff since I created a registry don't but don't want to have to call and explain to a worker to delete my registry and stop mailing me things because my baby died.
