A friend recently asked me how she could get the best deal on some Michael Kors boots for a Christmas present. Since Michael Kors is a brand that’s sold at many different stores, I thought it would be hard to keep track of when and where they would actually go on sale, right down to the specific sizes/colors she needed.

Enter: Shoptagr! A great way to solve this problem. You simply install the extension on your browser (it takes less than a minute - I’m not tech savvy but I figured it out quickly). Then browse your favorite stores like you usually would, and hit the extension button anytime you find something you like. This box will pop up:

Shoptagr price alert

Fill in the blanks by indicating which size, color and discount level you want to monitor and click "Tag It!." Shoptagr saves it to your account and automatically starts checking the price every couple hours. If the price drops (including relevant coupons), you'll be instantly notified via email.

In less than 5 minutes I had tracked Michael Kors boots from 6 different websites and saved them on a list called “Christmas Boots” (see below). It’s a lot like having a smart universal shopping cart for your comparison shopping, and I could see how this site could save you money by automatically monitoring items from so many stores at once, especially when you combine sales with coupons. You can try out Shoptagr here (it’s totally free).

About today’s outfit: all that snow in the inspiration photo is making me cold, but I love the color of her ivory shorts/romper combined with a camel coat and boots. I would love to find an ivory shirtdress someday, but in the meantime I tried it out with my white shirtdress, a camel coat and camel boots; it’s like a winter version of the outfit below (same tunic and leggings). One easy way to make your closet stretch is by taking favorite outfits from the fall and “winterizing” them!
