Grocery List Smartphone App

Ok, I think this is one of those so-simple-it's-cool sort of things. It's a smartphone app for managing your grocery list, and the best part is it's shareable among other family members with smartphones.

OurGroceries

So for example, my wife is sitting at the dentist's office and remembers that we're out of bananas. Rather than have to remember to add it to the list when she gets home, she pulls up this app on her phone and types in "bananas." I'm at the grocery store and I see "bananas" show up on my list in real time.

You can share your lists with whoever you like. And if they don't have a smartphone, it's also possible to update the grocery list online from a PC.

Slick, eh?... and Free!

(Disclaimer: I have no affiliation whatsoever with this company. I just thought I would share because it's neat)

Ok that is great since I usually carry around a scrap piece of paper I find at work and lose it by the time I get to the store. Sometimes I will even have 2 or 3 scraps floating around. Downloaded and playing with it now.

Now I wish I had a smart phone.

I wonder how my cell phone provider counts the usage for something like that.

This is cool! On his way home from work, DH usually calls for a list, loses the list, and calls again for the list. I'm downloading the app.

Thanks, Steve!

Even though it's a smartphone app, I was able to put it on our iPads as well as on our iPhones.

We use Our Groceries, too. I like that you can sort the list into categories, then next time you enter "milk" it automatically is listed under "Dairy."

Installed this on the all of the household iPhones. Now everyone can add items to the grocery list during the week. The best part is when Mrs 40 C and I team shop the items get "crossed off" in real time and we don't duplicate efforts.

Great Find Steve!

I have the app. Can you delete recipes? I really do not need the Greek salad recipe on the list!
