This Google Chrome app will stop you impulse buying over Christmas and save you money
A Google Chrome app is here to stop you from going spending mad online this festive season.
This is great as Christmas is expensive enough as it is and it’s easy to get lost in the deals and the sales and before long it’s all got a little bit out of control.
The Google Chrome extension is called Icebox and it’s courtesy of Finder.com.
The extension will turn those big tempting ‘buy’ buttons into buttons that instead read ‘on ice’. You can then only access and buy those items after what the extension calls a ‘cooling off’ period.
All the items which you click ‘on ice’ on are then put into a virtual shopping basket similar to your Amazon basket and they will stay there until the cool down period is over.
You can select how long the cool down period is so if you’re trying to not splash too much each day you can just set it to 24 hours or if you know you need to wait until after Christmas when you’ve been paid again you can set it for longer.
Get Icebox for free in the Chrome store .
