If you’ve been receiving my emails, you are probably aware that I’ve been promising to tell you about an amazing grocery list app. I use it on my iPhone, but it is probably available for Android users too. It’s called OurGroceries.
*Note: The creators of OurGroceries have not contacted me about writing a post about their grocery app. I was not offered any compensation for this post. I am not required to write a positive review of the app. I use this app on a regular basis. I love it. I think you will love it too.
I like this app a lot because it is easy to add items, categorize them, and mark them off. I categorize my items according to the way my grocery store is laid out. It makes shopping so much easier. I spend less time looking for items because they are listed according to the order of isles in the store.
Here’s how to use it.
Type in the item you want to add to your list.
Add your item to a category.
You can add as many categories as you need and arrange them in any order you like.
There is a section within this app where you can add entire recipes. Then, when you want to make the recipe, you can tap on the individual ingredients to add them to your shopping list.
See that button at the lower right of the pic above? If you know you need all the items in the recipe, you can add all the items to your shopping list at once. You’ll get a notification (below) that tells you that all the items were added to your list.
I forgot to mention that you can create multiple lists on this app. I always have my grocery list on here, but pretty soon, I’ll probably add a Christmas list. When you’re ready to add items to one of your lists, you just click on it. The pic below shows my shopping list button. Then, beneath it, You can see several recipes that I’ve added in.
Here’s a final pic of one of my lists with more categories added.
I really like this app for my phone. I add items in as needed through the week. I categorize the items as I add them in so they are all in order when I’m ready to head to the store. As I walk through the isles, I mark them off as I go. I rarely have to return to previous isles because I’ve arranged my categories according to the store set-up. The only thing that sometimes messes this up is if I go to a different store which is arranged differently. My set-up is arranged for Kroger because I go there the most. When I go to a different store, things are out of order so I might have to backtrack some.
The best part is that this app is totally FREE. I’m not even sure if there is a paid version. I’ve never looked for it because I’ve never needed anything more than this free version. Go ahead, enter into your app store, search for OurGroceries, and download it to your phone. Your next shopping trip will be much easier!
