There's a lot of pressure to spend spend spend during the holidays but not a lot of resources telling you *how* to spend wisely, or helping you maintain your sanity.

 

You don't want shopping to consume all your time and energy--but you do want to find great gifts on deep discounts. Luckily, there are apps just for that, and we consulted online shopping expert and SheFinds.com founder Michelle Madhok to find out what they are.


Click through the slideshow to find out what iPhone apps you should download immediately to make it through this holiday season in one piece (it's not too late to reclaim your time or mental health!).

1. RetailMeNot

 

This app has hundreds of thousands of digital promotions and coupons from a variety of retailers (think Best Buy, Amazon, Target and more).

 

"RetailMeNot makes it easy to save time and money," Michelle says.

2. Giftster


"Take the guess-work out of gift shopping by signing your family up for Gifster," advises Michelle. The free app lets families set up a gift registry with lists of gifts for each family member. Once all members have created a list, anyone within the group can browse and reserve to buy a specific gift. Genius!

3. Slice


"Take the anxiety (and Inbox diving) out of tracking packages with Slice." The app connects with your email inbox to find and store the e-receipts from the stuff you buy. Once Slice has gathered all the tracking numbers, it updates them on a map that shows where packages are and when they're supposed to arrive.

4. Santa’s Bag


Having an Excel spreadsheet for gifts and budgeting is so 2016. "This app lets you track your gift-list progress, set a budget for each recipient, organize gifts by store to avoid multiple trips." We're obsessed!

5. Giftfund


"This is the best app for group gift giving," Michelle says. Invite your friends and family to contribute towards a big gift together. Aka, give people what they really want instead of a bunch of small gifts.

6. Try 

 

If your holiday shopping consists of shopping for yourself (it should--there are so many great deals!), you must try this app. Try gives consumers the ability to order clothing from any online retailer, try it on at home and only pay for what they keep. "Perfect for the indecisive shopper!"

7. Earny

 

Michelle swears by Earny to get cashback when prices drop. "Plus, you can make money by referring friends, too."

8.  Ibotta 

 

Another cash back rewards app, Ibotta is incredibly easy to use. "I use it every time I shop," Michelle explains. Get a $10 welcome bonus now.
