I’m almost back to myself after a few days with stomach flu, but I’m still pretty wiped out after doing little things like dishes or picking up. I’ve got some new projects in the queue and hoping I have enough energy to work on at least one tonight!
In the meantime, I remembered that I never shared something that I meant to do over a month ago! You may remember the ongoing Costco list that I created here. Well, the day after or so, I read a blog post about an app…one that I already had on my phone, mind you…where I could do the same thing. Without paper. And always have it with me. (Knock head against wall.)
I’ve installed other grocery apps, and I probably could have used one of them as well. For whatever reason I never got into a good habit of using my phone for grocery lists. I find it easier to write the things down as I think of them in the kitchen, whether on a dry erase board like I had here, or a paper shopping list. But I also don’t like to waste paper, so I’m on board with trying something that saves paper and printer ink!
- If you need help with meal ideas, you can search & save recipes from thousands of food sites, then save it to your ZipList recipe box. From there you can easily add the ingredients to your grocery list! You can sort your recipes so they’re easy to find, and can even create a meal-planner queue! There’s even a ZipList Clipper that you can drag to your bookmark bar which allows you to clip recipes from around the web!
- You can create your grocery list on your phone whenever and wherever it’s convenient. You can create different lists for all your favorite stores (I have one for Costco, Wal Mart, Hy Vee, Whole Foods and Walgreens), and can even share it with family and friends so you can help each other out in the store!
- You can use ZipList on your phone or via the computer, and sync the information between devices. I love this because I find it easier sometimes to do stuff from my laptop, but then I have the convenience of having it with me when I’m out-and-about!
