Web Spy: Have to Have

By now, pretty much everyone knows about, and is completely addicted to, Pinterest. There's no better way to spend hours discovering new recipes, DIY projects, pretty pictures and fashion inspiration. And now there's a new site that combines my love of wasting time browsing Pinterest with my other love, online shopping -- Have to Have!

Web Spy: Hipmunk

While I love to travel, the one thing that I don't love about it is planning the flights. Trying to find the perfect flight on the date and times you want, without too many layovers, at the lowest price possible amidst the sea of flight options out there is enough to drive a person crazy. But with Hipmunk, booking flights is now a whole lot less stressful.

Web Spy: Raditaz

Whether I'm studying, walking to class, having a dance party with my friends or working out, I have a Pandora station that suits my every situation and mood. As much as I love my go-to music site, though, I've recently discovered a new site that's giving Pandora a run for it's money. Meet Raditaz! It's an internet radio service, much like Pandora, except it has over 14 million songs in their library -- that's about 13 million more songs than Pandora.

Web Spy: MyFitnessPal

Just like everyone else, this year I pledged to finally start working out and eating better. Part of it is vanity -- who doesn't want to look good in a bikini at the beach this summer? -- but the other part is knowing that, as I get older, I have to start taking care of myself if I want to live a long, healthy life. The problem is, I've always had a hard time getting (and staying) motivated -- but not anymore!

Web Spy:

With so much going on in our lives, it's almost impossible to remember everything you have to do. Sometimes, things just slip through the cracks. While it can't help you with everything, can help make sure you don't forget to follow up on any important emails.

Web Spy: Clockblock

I have a confession: I'm sort of obsessed with lists. Whether it's a shopping list, top 10 list or to-do list, organizing the things in my life into lists keeps me sane. But making lists really helps me out: I find if I don't write out everything I have to do (errands, school work, chores at home, etc.), I'll forget. I've recently discovered a new way to help me organize all the things on my to-do list: Clockblock.

Web Spy: SaveOnBrew

It's no secret that college students drink a lot of beer. And it's also no secret that we're all pretty broke, so often the money that we could be spending on our beloved beverage has to be spent on more "practical" food or textbooks. Well, thanks to a new site that's calling itself a "search engine for beer," you'll be able to save more money so you can afford beer and the other important things in life.

Web Spy: Salemarked

It's common knowledge among anyone who knows me (or anyone who reads my posts) that I'm an online shopping addict. But I can't afford to buy everything I find online, so I'm always on the lookout for great deals. If I find something I really like, I'll keep checking back until there's a sale or it goes on clearance. Now there's a web app that does the work for me!

Web Spy: Closet Shark

Ever since high school, it seems like we all have at least one occasion every year -- whether it's a formal, wedding or just a fancy party -- where we can get all dressed up. And while it's fun to dress up now and then, it can get expensive to have to buy a new dress for every event.

Web Spy: Litfy

As college students, we do a lot of reading. And while I love to read, I don't love how much I can spend on textbooks each semester. Which is why I'm always looking for the best deal when it comes to books -- so imagine how excited I was when I discovered I could save money on my books for my English classes by reading the them online for free on sites like Litfy!
