The holidays are here, which means there’s tons of shopping, party planning, and decorating to do.

Luckily for all of us, our smartphones can make matters a bit easier on us.

Carson recently discovered two free apps that will come in handy all year long, but now’s a better time than ever to download them ASAP…so what are you waiting for?


Red Laser encourages everyone to “shop smarter.” How, you ask? Well, let’s say you want to buy a new coffeemaker. Go to any store and scan the product’s bar code. It will bring up all the stores within a five-mile radius so you can compare their prices.

Or, if there’s a better deal online, Red Laser will alert you to that as well.

It also keeps track of all your rewards programs, which means no more fumbling through your wallet to find your Sephora VIB card!


If you’re in charge of buying the booze for this year’s ugly Christmas sweater party, then Drync is the app for you.

Love that bottle of wine your mom brought to dinner the other night? With Drync, you can take a picture of the label and with the click of a few buttons, you can order and have that bottle delivered right to your front door.

Drync also provides wine notes, reviews, availability, and retail pricing if you’d rather to hit up a local shop.
