Froogle is yet another service from Google. The name Froogle is a hack of the words "frugal + google", Google itself being a hack of googol( 10 to the power of 100 ). Froogle has two sides to it - from the point of view of a person who is looking for some cool products sold over web and a merchant who is selling goods online. Both the search and the listing services are provided freely by froogle ( thats why i like it! ). Froogle is not a store where we can buy things it only directs us to the stores which sells the products we are looking for. This way Froogle doesnot promote any store over another. However like anyother Google search, it comes with sponsored links, which can be safely neglected.
Froogle has two great features - "My Shopping List" and "My Wish List". For creating these lists one should have a google login. In the "My Shopping List" we can add the products we like to buy, if not now in the near future, and thus keep a check on their prices, features etc. The best part of Froogle is "My Wish List". This is the publicly viewable part of our Wish List. We can selectively add the products which can appear on our Wish List. This way we make our preferences known to the people who are willing to buy us gifts.
I hereby declare that i am ready to accept gifts from anyone who is willing to send some ( dont wait for an occasion ). Heres my wishlist to aid you My Frugal Wish List
