An Assistant that Really Helps

I’ve been watching Hermione Chantal’s YouTube channel for quite a while. Her focus during the past year or so has been renovating a 1900’s row house in England.

In addition to learning a lot of different design ideas, Hermione introduced me to a little tool that she used to keep track of items she wanted or needed for the house.

Shoptagr is an app that you can download to your smart phone or load onto your computer. Its purpose is to assist you to not only save money but time. Save and bookmark items you love to your Shoptagr page. It will automatically alert you when prices drop or items return to stock.

Sign up is free and they take minimum information. Shoptagr covers hundreds, if not thousands, of stores that you would access online. In some cases, those same stores have brick and mortar locations. You go to the app, sign in, and start browsing. Pick the store you are interested in and load it from the app. Once in the store, an icon resides on the right side of your screen. Choose and item you are interested in and click to add it to your page. Let the app know what you want it to check for you and you are done.

I’ve been experimenting with it for a little while now and find it easy to use and unintrusive. I have an alert icon that lives in my browser bar that tells me when it has notifications for me.

You can set up lists of things you are looking for; clothes, furniture, home decor items, whatever you want. And if you find a store that is not on their list, let them know and they’ll work to add it.

Shoptagr can be helpful if you are looking for the best options for holiday presents, home decoration projects, updating your wardrobe or any other type of shopping you do. Pair it with Rakuten to save even more money.
