    "An excellent way of tracking food, planning meals, and making shopping lists. I think its difference from the apps like this is the fact that the developers are actively updating it. I salute them for doing their jobs and continuing to improve their app to serve their users!"

    "An easy to use app and very well-organised! Although this is only an app dedicated to finding the best recipes in the world it is quite helpful in managing my pantry because it helps me see what i should buy for my pantry. "

DID YOU KNOW 

Did you know that being organized is a health benefit? A study from the Psychological Science found out that being organized does place a positive input on what you are eating. The study showed that people who are more organized on their things, specifically their desks, are less likely to eat junk food and will choose to snack on healthy food like fruits instead. The word “pantry” is a derivative form of the Old French word “paneterie” which means “pain”, the French word for bread. Pantries are traditionally designed for food storage and are usually located in spaces between kitchens and dining rooms. Having a pantry at home saves time, money, and mess in the kitchen. With the advent of technology, apps made for managing pantries are in the new now. These applications are made easier for users to have one on their smartphones, one of these manage-your-pantry apps is the Easy Fridge. This application allows you to track or monitor your fridge and reminds you which products are out of date or its upcoming expiration date. Specific apps like this helps boost one's productivity that will lead you to be organized and eventually can acquire health benefits from organizing.

    "So far so good! I like the fact that this will notify me when a produce or food on my fridge is almost near its expiration because of that i am able to not waste any food, helping me to save money and use/eat first what should be eaten first. "

    "Every so often, I get a call while I'm at work from my kids saying we're out of milk, or we're out of cereal, or whatever they want to eat. It gets annoying. Like, just tell me what you need when I go shopping. Luckily, Out of Milk reminds me when an item in my pantry is getting low, and I can plan ahead for shopping so I don't receive those annoying texts."

It provides help with stocking and also keeping track of how old items are. It has helped me immensely, and it is commercial rated! I would suggest downloading this app the next time you start restocking your pantry or kitchen."

    "I downloaded the Easy Fridge app in hopes that I could use it to monitor all of the food items in my kitchen including those in my pantry. Unfortunately Easy Fridge is limited only to the items in kept in your refrigerator. I suppose i could add all of the items in my kitchen and keep mental notes where the items are actually located, but the app doesnt see able to handle more than a couple dozen items at any given time. It also seems prone to crash easily. Overall i have to say that the app is not at all adequate for managing my pantry."

    "I highly recommend PikyPak to manage your pantry at home. It's looks very promising in contrast to other apps out there. It is useful not only to manage your pantry, but also other lists of stuff at home. For example, meds, cleaning essentials, self-care goods and etc. I would highlight the "notifications" feature. The app notifies you about if something is finishing or expiring. Moreover, it makes you not forget to update your stuff in the app every time you take/add something from/to your pantry. Very cool feature. The other nice feature there, is that the app sorts your goods in such way so that the most finishing or expiring goods are always on the top. With that, you can always tell from the first glance what goods are about to expire or finish so that you can take needed actions quickly. And this leads to another cool feature. If you see that some of your products are finishing or expiring, you can quickly move them to the "need to buy" list. This is a special list, the shopping list, if you will, which won't let you forget to buy finishing goods when next time you are in a store."
