What's your CRUD app? (I need help thinking up mine)

Spencer Fry writes that having an idea helps you learn to program: http://blog.teamtreehouse.com/learning-to-program-requires-an-idea

He writes about building a CRUD app, a project that's meant to get your feet wet, and keep your interest.

What's your CRUD app? What are you looking to build?

I want to learn PHP and CSS and Javascript. But I feel the need to have a CRUD idea to keep me going when things begin to get hard. Any advice? How

I built a very simple To Do List app. It's great for clearing concepts. Add new tasks (Create), list them all (Read), add or edit attributes like the date it is due (Update) and delete them once they are completed (Delete). The bare-bones structure can be handled by HTML, the eye candy with CSS and the interactivity part with JS.

Thanks for reading!

My CRUD app was https://www.uncover.com but it's changed a bit since I first began working on it.
