Hey there - I worked with finder.com to help build this extension and I'm happy with how it came out. We were inspired by the insight that popular personal finance blogs would suggest you put purchases "on ice" to prevent impulse spending. There didn't exist an easy way to actually put things on ice so we build a relatively simple chrome extension that does just that! We went further and for popular sites (e.g. amazon, etsy, sephora) actually *stop* you purchasing anything without further putting it on ice (note: there is a way to break through the ice for essential purchases!) This is the first iteration so I'm sure there will be some bugs and things but all feedback welcome. Thanks
