With this app nothing is gonna be forgotten to be bought anymore! "

    "Tired of that slip of paper with your food list getting lost or forgot? You always have your phone , so use it! One nice feature is that you can share your lists with your partner...while they are shopping without you!"

DID YOU KNOW?

The grocery item that most people spend their budget on are processed foods and sweets. It comes to no surprise but statistics prove that 25% of grocery money goes straight to junk food! If you want to cut out unhealthy eating habits, you can start by creating a grocery list with healthy food. A grocery list that is well planned is helpful in letting you remember what to buy when you're there. It's also effective in making you spend less time and money inside the grocery store. One of the preferred ways to organize your grocery list is to pick out the healthiest food by aisle. Case in point, if you pass by the bread aisle, you can focus on getting whole wheat bread and muffins. By making a grocery list by specifying the items in each aisle, you can identify which food to get and avoid. Although following the list can already guarantee you to make good purchases.

Although making a handwritten grocery list is also helpful, technology allows us to make things simpler. Grocery lists can be created in grocery apps for Android and iOS specifically for that purpose. Not only can you list items, but you can also make an inventory and even share the list with other members of your family. There are also some grocery apps with voice recognition. You can list grocery items using your voice with either Alexa or Siri depending on your device. Next time you have to visit the grocery, don't forget to create a grocery list to avoid forgetting essentials or overspending!

    "Out of Milk is a very good grocery app but not the best one. With it you can take your grocery list wherever you travel without a physical written list or a pen. You can create the list and to do lists as well as keep an up to date pantry closet inventory for reference. Users indicate a new update removed a category sorting feature. Free Shopping List Ease is another one highly rated. "

While shopping, I click once to check something off and it moves it to the bottom and fades it out. Great app and real time and money saver!!! Highly recommended!"
