My wife and I do the same thing. In addition to shopping, we use it in our house for pretty much anything that involves a list we want to collaborate on, including to-do lists, checklists for various things, vacation ideas, etc,

It's nice to be able to add something on a whim.

I'm officially addicted. I love this app. I added the local Feed & Seed Store, for fall vegetables and flowers keep looking at my lists, trying to think of other stuff to add

Thanks, Steve! When you originally posted this, DH didn't have a smartphone. And thanks again, taxy, for mentioning it!

I just thought of another one - stuff to do before we go to a state park for a few days with my dad and stepmother next month.

Grocery List Smartphone App

I have lists for our vacation destinations, special events, plant market, craft store too.

There's another feature I recently discovered, you can "flag" stuff. That might be good for things like prescriptions, coupons, etc.

Do you mean adding a star from the info about the item? I haven't really figured out a use for that.

I guess I'm still standing with my feet firmly planted in the 20th century. We have a white board on the fridge and both of us write stuff on it for shopping lists. Upper left for the supermarket, upper right for Costco, other corners for other stores. The one downside is that I have to either carry the white board to the stores or copy the list onto a piece of paper.

I suppose I could take a picture of it...

You'll need your Polaroid or Brownie camera for that.

That's what I do. My brother was over one time and saw my grocery list, and asked me if my white board was a bit bulky to carry shopping with me.

From another one stuck in last century.
