Hey guys!

How many of you love to shop? If you’re anything like me, you might have a slight shopping obsession! Unfortunately, I’ve been pretty depressed lately knowing that I can’t do my usual amount of shopping due to starting grad school and now planning for a wedding. It’s such a struggle of wanting to save money, yet wanting to go out and do some online therapy!

Online Shopping Made Easy

I found a really cool online tool that I’d like to share with you today, made just for people like me who want to be smarter shoppers. It’s called Shopswell. Shopswell is like Pinterest for shopping. Only better. If you’ve ever clicked on a cool product from your Pinterest feed, only to be disappointed when you’re not able to buy it or even find that product on the link that opens, you’ll love knowing that Shopswell only features products available for sale and even shows you the current price! You can discover new products online, and everything featured is very buyable! I love online shopping, but it can be a bit frustrating when you see something that you oh-my-goodness-absolutely-have-to-have only to find….it’s no where to be found.

Organized Browsing

Creating a Shopswell account is very easy to set up and and use.  Once you are registered and have a profile, you will create a theme for a specific category that you are looking to shop for. My theme I chose is, “Festival Fall Decor.”  After browsing through Shopwell’s categories, I was naturally drawn to the decor. I’m always looking for ways to spruce up my home! (And by now- you all know that I’m a bit Fall obsessed!)

When creating a profile, you can even decorate your theme by uploading a cover photo to make it look all organized and pretty!

From there, you can start building your list of items relevant to your shopping theme. You can do so by searching for a specific product in the search box at the top of the page, or adding a specific product or paste a link from a Web retailer by clicking on the plus sign next to the Search box. You can also add any notes and check track price to compare prices!

I decided to go with the home decor theme because that’s how I have been spending my money the most lately! This past summer, we renovated our front entry way, and a few months ago, I fixed up my home office! I have had so much fun picking out these pieces, but it was a bit stressful trying to find the right look. If I would have had a more organized and easy shopping experience online, I never would have even had to leave my home!

What I perhaps love the most about Shopswell is the price tracking tool. Using this, I can save money on products that I’m interested in. In addition- it’s a huge time saver!

Why Shopswell?

If you’re an organizational freak like I am, you’ll love it. I have slight OCD/anxiety when it comes to clutter; my Shopswell experience was great because it was very organized and simple to use. You can track your favorite products and even share your lists with other shoppers! Shopswell is a community of friends shopping smarter together. Shopswell shoppers share their favorite finds with lists—curated by theme. Follow shoppers who like the same things you do. You can even share your lists!

The nice thing about Shopswell is that you know about products before you buy. You can read reviews, recommendations and watch videos shared and created by fellow shoppers. I mean, how often do you get to really think and make an informed decision before you buy? I know I have made this mistake MANY TIMES…and trust me, online returns can be a drag. Shopswell even allows you to get your own price stalker. Did you know that prices can drop up to 30% on an item in a week? Who has time to watch for the lowest prices? If you’re talking about a phone or flat screen TV, that can be a pile of dough. Let Shopswell track prices and alert you when it’s time to buy! I encourage you all to get out there and give Shopswell a try!

Guess what?! Shopswell is having a monthly $10,000 GIVEAWAY– giving back to the Shopswell community based on credits earned for helping others. Why? When you create a useful list of products, share a helpful video or your product review, you are helping others and creating value. Shopswell thinks that people who create value should be rewarded, so each month, they reward the Shopswell users who are most helpful to the community. Find out more about the sweepstakes here! Good luck, and happy shopping!
