I know some seriously brilliant people.

Today’s Cheap Thrill might actually wind up saving you money! Or making you spend more money. Either way, it’s totally rad.

By the way, I’m a TaborSpace in Portland as I’m typing this, and I swear they made the playlist out of my soul… Over the Rhine, Sugarland, The Band Perry, old jazz… magical.


You know when you’re looking at the Anthropologie website (you do that, right?) and you happen upon a dress that you just plain love, but it’s $210 and nowayjose are you going to spend $210 and you vow to wait until it goes on sale but you forget to check back and by the time you find out it’s $45, they only have a size 0 or 16 remaining? Don’t you just hate that? I’m here to tell you that will never, ever happen to you again.

Meet Salemarked.

My brilliant friends Koes and Lindsay conceptualized and designed a site that will track sales on specific items for you… all you have to do is sign up, use the bookmarklet to mark your faves, enter the price you want to pay, and go about your life. Salemarked will email you when the item reaches the desired price! I’ve been waiting for this website for basically my entire life. Not even kidding. You can even share you list with friends, for inspiration or gifting or whatever. Love, love, love it.

Go mark some stuff, would you?
