Aside from being a helpful and innovative tool, Wantworthy.com is totally user-friendly. Just drag and drop the Wantworthy button to your browser’s bookmarks toolbar. Click the button while you're shopping online to save the items you want from any site to your list. Wantworthy saves the product's image, name, brand, price and link to the original site so you can go back to buy anytime.
We caught up with the site's creator Lauren McDevitt to find out about where she's shopping, what's next and where she found her inspriation for such an awesome site.
Jones: What are some of your favorite e-tailers?
Lauren: All of them! I'm kidding-my favorites are Nasty Gal, ASOS, and Shopbop (I'm addicted to the constant stream of new arrivals). I love store that offer affordable prices but don't skimp on quality and style.
Jones: What's next for Wantworthy?
Lauren: We're just getting warmed up with Wantworthy and we have a lot of cool stuff coming down the road. Just a sneak peek into a few of the features we're working on- we'll be sending updates on your items as they go on sale or out of stock, and we're also working on mobile apps so you can open your Wantworthy list in the store or save items as you shop. The big vision is helping users with the process of deciding what to buy. Whether that's budgeting and comparing or getting a friend's advice, we want to give you all the tools you need to make that decision while making shopping a more fun experience in the process!
Jones: What inspired the Wantworthy?
Lauren: The idea came from a really simple problem; I loved shopping but I wasn't always ready to buy, I needed time to browse. I would keep all of my finds open in different tabs, add links to bookmark folders or paste them into word documents (sounds extreme, but you'd be surprised how common this is). I wanted a simple tool that let me save all of the things I wanted into one visual, tidy list.
