Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Things we've tried and are kind of obsessed with: Svpply.com, this site where you can create a shopping list-slash-gift registry for everything you want. Have you ever wished there was somewhere you could make a list of things you want—a pan-online registry (with links!) where you could send parents-family-friends who want to buy you presents? Or even somewhere to store a list of stuff you want to pick up when payday rolls around? Check out Svpply.com. We've been playing around with it for about a month, and we're obsessed. Add the Buy Later button to your bookmark bar and you can add anything from nearly any online store to your Svpply. Plus you can follow other people, check out what's on their lists, and add 'em if you like too. Simple idea, but oh-so-useful. [Svpply.com]
