Listen, one-click to purchase is the devil's work.
In an attempt to fight off my online shopping impulses, I thought of a Chrome extension that measures how much something is truly worth to me. Y'know, on my own terms.
The Worth It Chrome Extension replaces the price of any item with your own brand of currency, so you can see exactly what it's really worth to you. That leather jacket you're considering? What if you knew it cost five-five burritos? Or twice your rent? Might make you think twice.
Worth It provides customized-cost context for whatever you’re considering in your cart. (whoa that was a lot of c's).
