New Site Spotlight: Keep Track of Online Finds with Wantworthy.com




Here's a new site you're going to love: It's called Wantworthy, and it's basically a universal fashion wish list! With one click you can save items you like to one central location as you shop or browse online.

"I came up with the idea because I always had tons of tabs open and had trouble keeping track of all the cool stuff I'd find online," says Wantworthy founder and CEO, Lauren McDevitt, a student at The University of Pennsylvania.

I've seen a lot of these types of sites over the years and I have to say this is one of the best because it's free & easy to sign up (provide email, username and you're done), super easy to install (just drag and drop the "I Want This" button to your browser's toolbar), and super easy to use (just click the "I Want This" button anytime you see a product you like, on any website.)

There are a few drawbacks, similar to those faced by like-minded sites such as Polyvore - if a website does not use static images, Wantworthy can't grab the actual product image. I found this to be the case on sites like Chockers and JCPenney.com. You can still add the item but you won't see a thumbnail in your wishlist, so you'll have to rely on your memory for those items.

Right now the site is private invite only so here's an invite link you can use to sign up.

Also, Wantworthy is running a contest where they'll be selecting users to win up to $500 worth of items from their wish list, an added incentive!

Whether you're a savvy shopper or a fashion blogger looking to keep track of all your fabulous online finds, give Wantworthy a look - it will make your life a little easier.
