Couples, you will find this FREE app extra useful. Grocery IQ is a great multi-platform grocery list app. Anyone can use email, texting, or other list apps for their grocery list, but this app takes convenience to a whole new level.
When making your list you can search, scan bar codes (from your phone’s camera), or simply enter your items. The bar code option makes things super simple if you’re making the list for someone else (no communication mix ups!). Or you can compile a list online at their site. And once you download and sign into the app, your list can be accessed on any iPhone, iPad, or Android phone!
While shopping, simply click the box next to each item you pick up and it gets crossed out. When you have everything, click “Checkout” and all the items on your list are stored in your history making it even easier to add next shopping trip. There’s also a way to add items to your favorites.
My two favorite aspects of this app? The list sharing and the coupons provided by Coupons.com. The list sharing is awesome. You just sign up for one account and whoever you want to have access to your list, give them the sign in information. So when you’re at home with the kids and your husband is out food shopping and you remember something you need, you can add it to the list and it’s updated on HIS list! LOVE.
The coupons aspect is great for the most part. The downside is most need to be printed before you go. You can look through them on your phone and have the ones you select emailed to you, but this doesn’t help for on the go shopping. There is a redeeming function though, and that’s when some of the coupons (there’s 2 tabs so click on the “Savings Card” one) can be added to your store’s savings card. So when you swipe it or input your phone number for the store savings, the coupon gets applied. Very nice!
You can make lists for different stores and organize by aisle. It really doesn’t get any better than this!0
