How I Manage My Online Shopping Habit

The Skinny Confidential x Giftry.

I’m totally that girl that has 34572398420 shopping tabs open on my laptop.

Some are items I’m dreaming about…some are items that are gift ideas…& some are just cute-ass trinkets that I ( think I ) need to have ASAP.

And since in my everyday life is so annoyingly organized ( like crazy, psycho, control freak-organized ), there’s something kind of dangerous about leaving all my computer’s tabs open.

Secret rebel style…

That is, until my computer crashes & all the tabs close out & I can’t freaking remember what was open & FML.

You been there too?

Well, have no fear because the greatest website ever just launched. It’s called Giftry ( P.S. I totally had a ‘why didn’t I think of that idea’ moment when I heard about Giftry ).

Basically it’s all the items I’m lusting over in one place. I can clearly separate my lists— in the most organized way possible. This is perfect for an organized psycho because now everything feels less overwhelming/manageable & there’s not a million tabs open cluttering my cute ‘Hustle’ desktop.

So on Giftry, all I do is carefully categorize my wants/needs/maybes/gifts into separate lists. Easyyyyy, right?

I mean clearly, for me this concept is kind of a no brainer because you guys know how I love my lists…!! #understatementoftheyear

Anyway I’m super excited to be a Giftry influencer— if you’re interested in following my favorite online shopping, sign up here.

Happy Sunday & enjoy! x. L

β™‘Β Shop It β™‘

  1. I have a severe online shopping addiction as well. The good thing is I rarely buy things, I just browse. I’m much worse when I shop in person. I’m gonna have to try this site, thanks!

  2. Haha I always have like 20 tabs open. Not only that but I use three browsers at the same time. My husband thinks I’m crazy but I like to think that I’m just good at multitasking. I’ll have to look into this.

  3. I am very good at leaving open the tabs with the items I want to purchase. But most of the time I decide not to, which is always a good thing for my wallet πŸ™‚ The reason why I normally don’t purchase is because I travel a lot or I live in different places and I got sick and tired of constantly bringing all the stuff with me :$

  4. Sounds like a great site and I’m going to check it out as I’m always leaving hundreds of tabs open on my PC, until my PC no longer works and I have to restart it lool πŸ™‚

  5. I am constantly not trying to shop. I shop online all the time and love it. I try to do this thing where I add things to my cart and then make myself think about whether I need them or really want them days or weeks later or I forget about them. So that helps a little but I am a sucker for a great deal. I definitely am going to have to try It sounds perfect for me too!

  6. I use one of these too. It’s called Pinterest :-P. No, but seriously.. this is genius. I hate the whole “Safari shut down.” thing. I too have way too many tabs open at any given time!

  7. Seriously online shopping is so addicting! This site looks great. Will have to try it. xx

  8. Just checked out this site and I absolutely love it!!! I am always trying to find new ways to organize my tabs (and my desktop), and I am obsessed with online shopping so to me this is basically website perfection πŸ™‚ I will def be using this from now on, Thanks for the tip Lauryn!

  9. I definitely need to use this site! I always, always have about 6 chrome windows open with 10 tabs in each…this seems like it will satisfy my OCD.

  10. This is going to be a lifesaver for me this holiday season! I’m due to have a baby on Christmas and forget absolutely everything with pregnancy brain. I can track gifts to buy myself for reaching postbaby fitness goals too πŸ™‚

  11. This looks totally dangerous and amazing at the same time! The only thing that keeps my online shopping somewhat under control is that I usually lose tabs, so this is going to be amazing. Thanks for the tip! Xo, Sarah

  12. I have a total problem and I know it. I usually use Pinterest to keep my gifties in check but I may just check this puppy out. Window shopping in a digital age. Sigh…

  13. Definitely will be checking this out. I have a horrible late night online shopping habit for when I can’t sleep but maybe this will help control the urge to have a million tabs open! πŸ™‚

  14. Thanks for sharing the tips. I was looking for useful online shopping tips and found your blog. The article is really informative. It’s really helpful for me and hopes it will be for others as well. Looking to your other contents. Hope they will be informative too. Cheers!
