Shopping simplified with Octer

I spend a disproportionate amount of my time shopping online, I'm not going make any excuses, the hunt has become a hobby. So often I'll get it in my head that I must have a specific item and will leave no stone unturned until I can find it. Which means searching a lot of sites, because a basic web search often falls flat. If I want the perfect black sweater dress I will go to all my usual haunts and search each site individually.

This where Octer comes in. Rather than visiting TJMaxx, and Nordstrom, and Topshop and dozens of others, Octer lets you search them all at once. From there you can compare prices, and get redirected right to the product page on the site where you can then make a purchase. Octer searches hundreds of stores and thousands of brands, but the only caveat is in the sorting. You can sort by main category, mens, womens, home, ect, and by price and sale items, but that's all. No filters for sizes, colors, or garment style.

My search for a black sweater dress under $50 quickly yielded results and I was able to narrow it down to a few I liked in no time - not to mention that the same web search yielded different results. Octer offers a great way to expand upon my usual searches, save time, and fuel my shopping habits - be that good or bad.

They also have an app for your phone, and if you create an account you can save items, just like I usually do in my virtual shopping carts, only without those emails about how I've "forgotten something".

Hopefully Octer will continue to add more stores and brands to their database, add a few more sorting filters and become a really robust shopping search. I see a lot of potential to make online shopping so much easier, and now that I've been introduced, will be using Octer quite a bit, and I hope you check them out too!

  8. And now, I'm off to check out Octer...!

  9. This is such an interesting concept and one I hope will continue to expand - I'm constantly getting ideas in my head of must-have products, only to be unable to locate them while doing internet searches because the basic search engines fail to show me enough options. I can't wait to give Octer a try (and hopefully check a few things off my very long wishlist!)

  10. Lovely shoes!

  11. Hé, this sounds so helpful! Great tip! (ps. I really love the sweater you're wearing on the photos!)

  12. This is the exact reason I fell in love with Shopstyle back in the day. It's such a pain in the rear to have to search every store online for the one item you're fixated on!

  13. Had never heard of it--- ha ! another site to look at :)
