Life gets crazy around the holidays. The effects of holiday craziness are twofold: You can miss everything happening around you while falling farther and farther back in what you need to do. Don鈥檛 worry about it. We鈥檝e got you covered. Here, we鈥檝e got our five favorite apps that hit the app store this week. They鈥檒l help you save money on holiday shopping and figure out your party schedule 鈥 now you can go back to whatever you were doing.

1. Purse: We鈥檙e always looking for new ways to save money on things we buy already. Cue: Purse. The new app will help you save 5 percent on purchases from Amazon (up to 20 percent from other merchants) by helping you buy with Bitcoin. If you鈥檙e totally new to Bitcoin and don鈥檛 really know where to start, the app will guide you through setting up and help you start saving.

3. BoycottTrump: If you鈥檙e looking for a political addition to your phone, DL this app that will tell you exactly which companies end up benefiting the president-elect (and how he鈥檚 involved with them) so you can take your business elsewhere.

4. Younity: If you鈥檝e got all Apple products and have iCloud on everything, you can easily access all of your stuff across multiple platforms. But if you own just one different brand, you can鈥檛.

5. Capsule: This is basically a social calendar/planner that doubles as a diary.
