Back to School with Rately and Jeshua - a Real Rately User

Check out how another user conquered his back-to-school shopping with the new and improved Rately browser!  Jeshua, who is headed to Georgia Tech in the fall as an Aerospace Engineering major with a minor in Computer Science, says that Rately made the shopping process easier and less hectic.  Read below for more!

As much as I hate to say it, summer break is almost over. And not just any summer break - it’s the gap between senior year of high school and college. So yeah, its a pretty big deal.

image

There’s so much to be done in the coming weeks to mentally prepare myself to take on the challenges of Georgia Tech. Oh, and also, there’s a ton of shopping to be done. I mean, I gotta buy a bunch of stuff to furnish my dorm room, as well as bags and notebooks and stuff to keep me going in my classes. I also work up until a week before school starts so I have a lot of shopping to do in not a lot of time.

image

So, needless to say that last week is going to be pretty hectic. 

image

Obviously, the choice for many at this point is go on Amazon and start ordering things and having them shipped to our doorstep. So I did too, but I also had the Rately browser extension running on my computer. So I found a few backpacks and suits and whatnot that I liked, and then when I went on the Rately app on my phone, I got suggestions based on what I saw on Amazon linking me to websites I’d never used before. It was fantastic! I saved all the items I liked and tagged them under “college stuff.” Now I could just search for the tag, “college stuff,” and every item I had been searching for was saved on my phone.

image

My plan to spend a week wallowing around the mall looking for stuff was completed in minutes by simply downloading and using the Rately app on my phone. Shopping on Amazon is pretty nice, but Rately takes online shopping to a whole new level in terms of accessibility and ease of use.

So to all you frantic college shoppers out there, download Rately. I promise, it won’t disappoint.

Rately User Shares How He Shops for Back to School with Rately

image

July is coming to an end (sad face!), which means that August - and back to school - is quickly approaching!  We have asked a few of our avid Rately users to tell us about their experiences using the browser and how it has helped them plan for back to school.

Our first post is from Hrisheek, President and Lead Programmer of the Milton Robotics Team at Milton High School.  Read how he was able to find everything on his list - plus some! - in only fifteen minutes with Rately.  Key for a guy who dislikes shopping.

Despite how much I didn’t want it to be true, I knew I had to start my back-to-school shopping. But I realized I could find everything I needed quickly and easily with Rately.

At first I didn’t even know which store to start off at, but as soon as I touched the search bar, Rately immediately gave me tons of store suggestions, giving me a starting point. Choosing Amazon, I searched “backpack” in the store and found a North Face backpack that I liked. 

image

Rately began to track the product, and without having to continue searching through more pages and sites, the app already gave me tons of suggestions for more backpacks. Using these suggestions I actually found a more appealing backpack that I wanted to be able to visit later.

image

Instead of having to leave a tab open or copy the link, all I had to do with Rately was save the product and give it a tag. Soon I had a “school” tag filled different binders, pens and pencils, paper, my backpack, and other school supplies. Looking at the clock, I realized I had found everything on my school supply list while lounging on my couch at home for 15 minutes.

I don’t know what I would have done without Rately.

Vive la France!

Le Quatorze Juillet

Bastille Day is on Monday, July 14th, and unlike American Independence Day barbecues that have hot dogs and burgers, the French celebrate their fête nationale with pâté and foie gras. 

I’ll let you decide which one I like better.

Get in on the gourmet fare with delectable eats (like cheeses, charcuterie, and jams) from Olympic Provisions, d’Artagnan, and a local boulangerie for baguettes; and decorate your dinner or picnic with blue and white checkered tablecloths from Pottery Barn (a very French pattern), wooden cutting boards, and Mason jars for wine and freshly cut flowers.  Maybe even bring a game of petanque for some friendly competition.

And maybe throw in an ironic twist and have some cake - why not make Marie proud?
