Today I’m sharing about a personal online savings assistant that I pay nothing for: Shoptagr. And you can use it for free too. Check it out here, and read on about why I think this is an awesome tool for moms who want to dress well on a budget.
How I Use Shoptagr to Save Time and Money on Clothes
It’s hard to go shopping for clothes when you have kids. The temptation to buy the first thing you try on is too great. And you may end up regretting the purchase because it’s not what you needed, you paid too much, or you didn’t get the right size.
Then there’s the online shopping. Here the temptation is to get sucked into a black hole of browsing, end up wasting time, and still remain undecided about what to buy.
So often I’ve come across something I love only to find they’re out of my size. Or even more commonly, the price is just too high and I wonder if it will be going on sale soon. But who has the time (or memory!) to be checking back every week for that discount? I’m lucky if I remember to give my toddler his vitamins every morning.
I recently came across an AMAZING tool that is solving this problem for me. I’m so excited to tell you about it.
Moms, I think you’re going to LOVE this.
I feel like I have a personal shopping assistant that’s only bothering me when something I care about happens: like when something I drooled over recently gets a price cut, is about to sell out, or gets back in stock.
Say hello to your new shopping buddy!
Though it be but little, it is fierce. 😉
How it works
Shoptagr is an online tool that allows you to save items you love onto lists, down to your size and color preference. When you do, it emails or text you when the items goes on sale (25%, 50% or more). It will also notify you if something is back in stock or is about to sell out.
This means when you go “window shopping” online, you are being efficient with your time. You save items you would consider buying at a lower price and then walk away, knowing you’ll hear about it if the product ever reaches your preferred price point.
GENIUS!! Ah, I love the smart use of your time here. (I used to be a project manager and efficiency runs in my veins!)
Step 1: Create your Shoptagr account on www.shoptagr.com. It’s free, no threads attached.
Step 2: Click “Get the button” to install the bookmarklet on your browser for easy saving.
Step 3: When you see an item you like anytime you’re browsing, use the button on the toolbar to save it (specifying your size and color preference as well as the discount you are looking for.)
You can also download their mobile app (Apple and Android) if you like browsing on your phone.
Step 4: Go about your life! Let Shoptagr keep track of your wish list items and email or text you when there are important price or stock changes.
Step 5: Shoptagr will email (or text) you when something on your wishlist is on sale, even providing a coupon code you can use.
Step 6: Decide if you are ready ready to buy! Then buy the items you need most at the discounted price. No guilt. Just the satisfaction of brilliant savings.

Using Shoptagr as a Wishlist
Shoptagr makes it easy to share your wishlists around your birthday, Christmas, or just whenever your husband owes you one. 😀 Just click the “Share List” button on the right-hand side to get your sharing link. You can see an example of my wish list here. These are all items I need for the Winter Wardrobe plan!
Earning a $50 Gift Card with Shoptagr
Shoptagr also has an awesome referral incentive! Besides the money you save, you can earn a $50 gift card to Amazon (or three other stores) when you refer three friends. The $50 gift card is credited after your referrals start using Shoptagr and buy something that was on their wishlist. This is such a truly helpful tool I certainly won’t have any trouble sharing it with my friends! And I’m sure you have mama friends who want to save time shopping too. Don’t just post your link on social media (although you should do that too)— send them a personal email about why you think it would help them. Tell them their sign-up earns you credit and that they can earn credit as a side perk too.
Skipped down to the bottom? That’s cool. Here’s the summary:
- Start using Shoptagr to save items you like on your wishlist. (Watch my video tutorial above to learn how to save time and money.)
- Sit back and know your browsing time did not go to waste. You will be notified when the items on your list go on sale!
